Make it small & perfect! Easy ways to turn a tiny space into something tremendous
There are many tricks for turning tiny into tremendous
small gardens have to push the boundaries of landscape design. Here’s how you can do it. • Make your walls or fences a canvas, a corner a focal point, and the floor a talking point.
• Double the functionality and cover half a planter or raised flower bed with a timber slab for you to sit on.
• Backyards or courtyards can be dark, and balconies can be scorchers, so choose plants that suit the conditions.
• Use small, round plants, tall, skinny ones, or both, to add dimension.
• Too many colours can fuel a psychedelic nightmare, while a monochrome plant list can fade into bland – unless you vary foliage texture, colour tone and plant form, and add little pops of colour.
1 Save space with plants espaliered against a wall, which also adds colour and texture. 2 Hang planters from the tops of your walls so your garden grows down, rather than up and out.
