Making the most of your small garden
You may think that your outdoor space is too small to create a garden area where you can host friends, but that isn’t the case. Small gardens, tiny terraces and petite patios may require you to get more creative but with a little bit more thought and consideration you can create a space that you can be proud of. Even the smallest of spaces can be transformed into an outdoor space that you can be proud of. Plus small gardens are low maintenance so won’t take up too much of your time!
If you want your garden to be a space to invite friends over somewhere to sit and relax then incorporating low walls into your garden is a great way to utilise your space. They will create definition in your garden as well as creating a space for you and your visitors to sit and enjoy your new garden. Give them a more comfortable by adding some outdoor cushions that are removable to create a more relaxed feel. Buying cushions with bright patterns will help to brighten your space and add colour and intrigue to your space.
If you already have walls in your garden then consider creating living walls. Plant flowers that will grow up your walls or create a structure where plants can be hung on the wall. This will help you create a feature in your garden, as well as leaving more space for you to incorporate additional garden accessories.
If you don’t have room to plant loads of brightly coloured plants then painting your garden walls and terrace white can really open up your space and make it appear brighter.
Planting flowers in pots will help you control the growth of flowers and plants. Allowing you to plan the space so that you can incorporate many different elements whilst creating a mix and match effect with the plant pots becoming a feature at the same time. If you have a very limited space with glass doors and windows looking out on the garden then planting jungle themed plants can give the illusion of a larger outside area.
The main thing to remember is that you don’t have to miss out because you only have a small garden area you just need to get creative and utilise your space to design a garden suitable for you.
