3 Ways You Can Maximise a Small Garden

12 November 2019

Grow Up

 To maximize a small space, think vertical. Use plants that draw your eyes upward – this can make a small space feel much larger than it really is. There are many types of wall-climbers, fast-growing plants and vines that you could use to create this area. These include:

  • Bougainvillea 
  • Dutchman's Pipe
  • Climbing Hydrangea
  • Coral Honeysuckle
  • Star Jasmine

You could also try creating your very own vertical herb/flower garden or go for a more simplistic approach of using bamboo; a plant that provides great privacy and shade!

Use Mirrors

 Mirrors are a fantastic accessory that can be used in your garden to help create the illusion of space. They are versatile in the way that they can be hung on the fence, walls or even wedged between a few plants! Mirrors can also be used to reflect light and can brighten up a normally shady area.

Adjust to Scale

If you’re working with a small space, include items that don’t over-power or cramp the area. Less is more in this case. Use smaller pots and shrubbery and arrange and position them appropriately to create the perception of a larger garden.

Everyone deserves a garden to call their own - whether that's big or small. Don't let the idea of a smaller area prevent you from creating the gardens of your dreams!
