Having a small garden doesn’t have to mean that you can’t flex your creative green thumbs to create an amazing space that allows you to relax and reconnect with nature. In fact, small gardens can prove to be some of the most well thought out and considered, with every facet of available space being put to great use to create a little slice of utopia that is just yours. Take a look at these fantastic examples of small gardens and see if you are inspired to dig out your trowel!
Being able to install gorgeous garden furnitures is ideal but it all depends on the terrain, shape and size of your outdoor space. Small gardens, in particular, need a delicate touch and a sympathetic eye so we love the great use of courtyard space in this example, with a defined patio area and separate greenery section. By keeping furniture off the grass the space appears bigger while the use of trailing foliage helps to blur the lines between lawn and walls. Lovely!
Small gardens can be the perfect location for a safe and fun play environment for your children, as long as everything is kept relatively simple. This example has got it just right with perfectly manicured soft grass, minimal plants and a sturdy swing set all working together to offer outdoor adventures in abundance. By keeping this space unfussy and easy to maintain, it looks bigger than it is but is enclosed enough to provide protection for your little ones.
