No matter what season it is, everyone wants to have a stunning garden to enjoy or to impress guests. Sometimes, it can be a little difficult to know what to do when you’ve only got a small garden to work with. However, luckily for you Prestige Lawns know exactly what works to make the most of a small space and have a garden you can enjoy all year round. Below, we’ve come up with our top design ideas for small gardens.
To avoid taking up lots of floor space, plant flowers and greenery up the walls or fences. By this, we mean get some trellises for the walls and fences and get some climbing plants to climb up them. This will add a bit of colour to your garden without using up a lot of space; it can also take away the attention of the small space.
As mentioned previously, having a bright garden will make it seem bigger than it really is. A great way to brighten your space is by getting artificial grass installed. Artificial grass keeps its bright green colour rather than dying and becoming yellow if it’s dehydrated like real grass. Not only will it detract from having a small space, it’s also really low maintenance, so it’s a winner all round.
To make your small garden look bigger, paint the walls and fences a bright colour. White paint will brighten up the garden, giving the appearance of a bigger space. It will also look really great contrasting against bright green grass and will make the colour of the flowers on your trellises pop more.
Have you ever thought about getting a mirror in your small garden? A long, landscape mirror across one of your walls can create the illusion of a much bigger space as it’s reflecting more greenery. It’s also a really great way to modernise your garden.
