Small gardens are my favourite to design. Lots of people contact me worrying that they can’t do much with a small garden. Actually, though, the opposite is true – you can do loads with a small space garden.
If you’re feeling a little sceptical on that, let me explain. Large gardens tend to visually need large areas of open empty space so that they don’t look too cluttered. Intricate design details tend to get lost in large open areas.
In a small garden though, you can often put in a lot more design details because everything is so small and close at hand.
Now as much as I hate the over-used term ‘outside room’ for small gardens it is appropriate.
So if you are about to undertake transforming a small space garden, rather than being daunted by it, just view it as decorating another room. That subtle shift in mindset will help you tackle it more easily because you’ll automatically think about how you use the space and ‘decorate’ it.
The most important part of any design regardless of the size or shape of the space is to first focus your efforts on how to use the space. You need to create shapes that link the entire garden together in a way that makes it look and feel larger and more interesting. In a small garden, this is even more critical to do.
