Garden Designer: Designing a Small Garden

If you were designing a small room, you might want to get rid of unnecessary furnishings in order to create the sense that the space is larger. Using similar principle, homeowners that have small yards might want just a few plant features for a garden. However, if you want something more extravagant, despite having a small space to work with, a garden designer can help transform your space into a beautiful natural garden. 

Here are a few tips for improving your small garden with design.

Dealing With Fences

In small yards, fencing tends to feel like prison walls rather than a simple boundary between yours and the next home. The garden designer might start by installing plants to soften the look of the fence. Plants that have broad leaves and variegated colours can help to make the garden feel more open.

Change Your Lawn

Many people opt to get rid of a lawn completely when creating a garden. However, you might want to keep part of your lawn. So how can you achieve the feeling of relaxation with a small urban garden?



Add a Water Feature 

A water feature can help to bring a calming effect to your outdoor garden.

Decorate Around a Tree

If there is a tree accenting your garden, why not install some plant life nearby or create a space for a bench to relax? Use garden lighting to add a great look while entertain your guests.

Install a Garden Path 

If you want to separate your garden from the main entrance, a garden path can help to make the garden seem more isolated from the rest of the home. You can also use natural stone for the garden path.

Plan for The Future

As your garden matures, you may want to add additional plants. Make sure that your garden design plan allows for flexibility so that you can make changes later on. This will also help in the event that some plants don't take to the garden successfully.
