Small Garden Design

Design is an essential element in all garden projects. For many the importance of the garden to act as a sanctuary in which to enjoy a restful moment is well established. Others use the garden as a space in which to enjoy outdoor living or a playful space for the children or family pets. Some also prefer a garden which offers an easily managed (low maintenance) colourful planting display throughout the year.

Design is the means to determining a layout which makes use of all the available space, displays planting in an appealing yet practical way and provides room and space in which to sit, enjoy and relax.

Whatever your preference, we all agree, that the opportunity to sit and enjoy outdoors, next to lush colourful planting with the gentle soothing background sounds of trickling water is a most enjoyable experience.

Use design effectively to create appealing features including sweeping curves for paths and lawns, warm colours on boundary walls and fencing all combining to create inviting and relaxing spaces. Raised planting beds provide lots of useful informal seating possibilities as well as scope for practical low maintenance planting solutions. Energy efficient LED lighting now makes it feasible and possible to extend the enjoyment of the garden after dark.

Design can also enhance the enjoyment and satisfaction of natural stone finishes which are not only beautiful, durable and practical but only require limited maintenance. Use design to unlock the potential of your small garden. Careful consideration and some creative thinking and a thoughtful execution are essential in order to achieve a successful result.

The true value of garden design and landscaping cannot be simply measured in cost terms or how much better the new garden looks in comparison to the older garden. At a more fundamental level, one must also take account of the better prospects to enjoy happier moments and occasions made possible by investing valuable time, effort and money to creatively design and landscape with discernment.
