Top Tips To Make The Most Of A Small Garden
Landscaping in a small space can be a challenge. What you want to achieve is the illusion of space, while making your garden a lovely place to spend time in.
With more and more homes being built with smaller gardens, it’s something that a growing number of homeowners need to consider. But WA Today recently offered some advice on how to design a smaller garden.
Among the top pieces of advice is to keep your planting simple. The site notes: “Remember that less is more when it comes to plant variety.” You need to think carefully about choosing plants for different purposes, such as those that can provide ground cover and climbing plants for walls or fences.
If you’re going to have some garden furniture, make sure it’s stylish and minimal – you need to pick pieces that suit the space in terms of their texture, shape and colour.
Making use of large planters is another tip to make your garden feel larger – you don’t need many of these, but having a series of three such pots can introduce “drama and a strong focal point”.
If you’re looking at your garden and wondering where on earth to start, hiring garden designers in Somerset to help you come up with a plan could be a good idea.
One of the things you might be struggling with is choosing the right garden fence for your boundary – there are a host of options out there and you need to consider not only the aesthetics but also the practicalities of whatever fence you pick.
