Glimpse into a se­cret gar­den

Landscape (UK) - - In the Garden -

Out­doors, a well-po­si­tioned mir­ror cre­ates a cap­ti­vat­ing il­lu­sion, ap­pear­ing to show a sec­ond gar­den hid­den be­yond. In a small area, it can also give a greater sense of space. The mir­ror is fixed on a shed or placed against a fence where it can re­flect the best of the gar­den. Choos­ing a shel­tered po­si­tion re­duces the need for clean­ing. The edges of the mir­ror can be hid­den be­hind abun­dant fo­liage or framed like a win­dow and sur­rounded by climb­ing flow­ers. The ef­fect is both sur­pris­ing and de­light­ful.
