How to maximise space in small gardens

Having a small garden can sometimes feel frustrating. It can feel like you have a blank canvas with little potential. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. A small garden can be beautiful, through using little tricks and injecting personality into the space, a once small garden can be transformed into a great outdoor living space. The main thing to remember is that it doesn’t matter what the size of the garden is, it’s how you utilise the space available which counts.

Keep it tidy

Before doing anything else, one of the best ways to make a garden appear bigger is by keeping it clean and tidy. This could mean sweeping away garden debris, trimming overgrown plants or hedges, removing weeds, and if you have a lawn, neatening up the edges. Keeping your garden maintained will make it a much more enjoyable space to spend time in.

Clever planting

Owning a small garden does not necessarily mean you can’t have plants. In fact, using tricks such as layering, arranging plant pots in a way that elongate a garden, and planting vertically instead of horizontally, can all give the illusion of more space. Layering, through building up texture such as by using flowers, decking and shrubs or creating various levels by breaking up the garden into different areas, can all be highly effective in maximising space. Planting vertically, by having climbing plants or incorporating tall plants into a garden can make a garden look rich and full, even when space is limited.

Garden Furniture

Enjoying your garden, no matter what its size, is the most important thing, and with the right garden furniture, this can be achieved. A corner seating area is always a great way to maximise space as it can be neatly tucked away whilst leaving open space in the central focal point of the garden. A wall seat is another excellent option for smaller spaces as it means you can move freely around it. By using multi-functional furniture, space can also be utilised in the best way, for example by having a table which doubles up as a storage facility. However folding furniture is another good alternative as it means space will not be permanently taken up. Finally, choosing furniture which has a slender design that complements the colour and textures of the garden, rather than one that is made with bulky materials, will mean it will nicely blend into the garden environment, rather than appear to take up space.
