Work wonders with water
Monet’s garden at Giverny has a large, meandering pond which he used for his iconic waterlily paintings. But far more ordinary spaces can use water to reflect planting and light. In tiny gardens you can evoke the aquatic effect by using old glass mirrors, acrylic garden mirrors or a polished metal surface. And even if you have no water at all, you can always install a brightly coloured Japanese bridge!
If you only have a small pond try dwarf water lily ‘Perry’s Baby Red’
