Small but perfectly formed
Today I thought I’d share some small garden inspiration. These days more and more of us are finding ourselves with less outdoor space. With people moving closer into the city and sacrificing larger gardens, downsizing to smaller townhouses & apartments, many of us (me included) have had to wave goodbye to dreams of a huge garden. Of course I wish we had more room for the kids to run about but I don’t think having less space is necessarily a negative thing. For starters the reality of keeping a larger garden is costly, time consuming and in some cases overwhelming. I’m always asked for low maintenance designs & planting plans but no garden is ever no maintenance and the bigger it is the more there is to do. Some of the most amazing designs and thoughtful layout plans are for small gardens where every little centimetre & detail counts and everything has to be so well thought through. A well designed space can transform even the teeny, tiniest, derelict side garden into a lush, warm, luxurious extra room that will have neighbours envious. Ok the rolling lawns and space for kids to run may not be an option but with a little creativity you can still create something special for your family to enjoy, without the mowing! Please be inspired by these small but perfectly formed gardens.
