It can be difficult to know what to do with a small garden. The last thing you want is to make it appear even smaller by filling it with lots of accessories. The good news is there are ways you can make the most of your small garden, but the key is to carefully plan and think about the features you really want.
Add a little lighting
Lighting can be a great way to add the illusion of space in a small garden. However, it can also be hard to get right. Outdoor LED lighting comes in many different forms. If you want to add a beautiful ambience to your garden at night, consider using LED solar lights installed into the ground. You can use them along flower beds to highlight flowers or you can highlight a path if you’d prefer. Both options can look great, just be sure to space the lights out so they don’t appear cluttered.
Consider a pond
A pond is something you wouldn’t necessarily think about when trying to enhance a small garden. It’s mistakenly assumed that ponds are only something that can be used in large spaces. Providing you choose a small pond, it can really enhance the space and create quite a romantic ambience.
There are other water features you could invest in if you really don’t like the thought of maintaining a pond. Small water features for example provide tranquillity to a garden. You can sit out and listen to them trickling as you close your eyes. It’s a great way to relax.
Change your patio doors
One way to completely alter the appearance of the garden is to change your outside door. Timber patio doors are a great investment as they create a country-style, cosy design. The warmth of the wood creates a welcoming vibe and captures the eye.
Try to blur the garden’s boundaries
Instead of highlighting the boundaries of your garden, try to blur them instead. This really helps you to give the illusion of additional space. Climber plants will work perfectly against walls and fences.
It’s not overly difficult to make the most of a small garden. You just need to remember not to highlight where the garden starts and where it ends.
