Small Garden Landscape Design Ideas

British philosopher Francis Bacon once mused that “gardening is the purest of human pleasures.” And, truly it is a delight to create Aardweg Landscaping Philadelphia Small Garden Landscaping Ideas something beautiful and unexpected and so rewarding, out of nothing. Sure, you say, but that takes a lot of space. What about homeowners who live on a plot of land the size of a postage stamp in communities such as Gladwyne, Haverford or King of Prussia, PA?
Are there any small gardening landscape designs and ideas that can be implemented even in the tiniest area? One of the most effective small garden landscape design concepts is to arrange small backyard zones into attractive and functional seating nooks. “This small yard landscaping idea may seem contradictory, but we promise it works: Break up open areas of a small space so it feels larger,” says BHG.com.

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.Small Backyard Garden Landscape Design Philadelphia

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.”
