Four Beautiful Small Garden Design Ideas
Check out the following 4 small garden design ideas covering everything from scaling and planning, to the unique garden personality:
1. Scale it right – Achieving a successful small garden landscape design is all about balance and proper proportion. So if you have a small garden, take a look at the plethora of dwarf and miniature trees, shrubs and plants that can perfectly accommodate any garden scale.
2. Think ahead – If you are not one of those people who enjoys puttering with garden chores, then consider a small garden landscape design with easy care and maintenance in mind. You could replace the lawn with a courtyard accented by shrubs and potted plants or borders filled with easy-care annuals and perennials. The result? Effortless, dramatic beauty.
3. Embrace structure – The simple addition of an arbor, trellis or pergola can create an impression of open space in a small area, since it makes use of vertical space and draws the eyes upward. This creates multi-dimensional interest in your landscape.
4. Be bold – Bright colors up front grab your attention and makes the “smallness” of the yard in the background appear larger in contrast.
In much the same way as a great personality makes a small individual have a big presence, so too with a garden. A landscape that pops with personality could never be seen as “small.”
