These small garden ideas can help you to get the most out of your limited space and make it seem bigger. Whenever possible, go vertical with plants and shrubs by using a trellis, window boxes or a planter. Limiting large shrubs and overhanging trees can also make the space seem larger and more inviting. Even a thin strip of lawn between your home and flower beds can give the illusion of more space. And a small garden can still have a focal point, such as a fountain, statue, enclosed bed or small pond but this should be chosen carefully so as not to overwhelm your small outdoor area. Finally, choose the right outdoor furniture; tables and chairs in bright colors and made from bamboo, thin metal or a light wood are ideal and won’t seem to take up the bulk of your space.
