There are so many amazing ways to make a small garden work for you. Think about it. The smaller your yard, the easier it will be to take care of. In fact, when you have a wonderfully designed little garden, it can look absolutely amazing! Here at Landscape By Design we specialise in Perth garden designs of all shapes and sizes. No job is too big or too small for our team to work on. It’s true that we adore the challenge of working with a small space. We love to make the most of every last square centimetre!
Often, our customers prefer their yards to be on the small side so that they’re easier to maintain. A large garden may look good but think of all the effort that’s involved in looking after a huge space.
Of course, if you do have a big garden and need help with it, we can take care of that for you too. We offer a maintenance service that is second to none in the area. We are more than happy to tailor a plan that encompasses everything you need done and for a great price too!
Getting back onto the subject of small yards, we can also offer our services even if you only have a small patio or balcony set-up. There are so many great reasons why a more diminutive yard can be an incredible space to work with and to spend time in. So, what should you focus on the most?
Function, Decoration or Both
Depending on your own personal taste, you can opt for a yard that is functional, decorative or that’s a blend of both. When it comes down to it, a balance of the two is probably for the best. You want to focus on plants that have an impactful visual sense. You could also add some functionality into the mix by planting herbs, vegetables and edible plants. You also have the option of creating a little shady oasis by planting trees and bushes that provide you with cover in the warm months. (A very underrated concept!)
When it comes down to it, opting for the hybrid approach is probably the most practical and interesting way forward when it comes to making the most of your yard.
It’s crucial to make the most of the space you have in your small garden. Here, at Landscape By Design, we have all the tools, knowledge and expertise necessary to create a beautiful space. We can work with raised beds in any variety of shapes so you can grow a myriad of plants even though you’re short of room. We are also well-versed at creating the illusion of space in a challenging environment.
Do bear in mind that little gardens can be constructed both vertically and horizontally. Think living walls and interesting details. Remember that it’s good practice to stagger different sizes, shapes and colours of plants in your yard. This creates dimension and texture as well as the impression that your yard is bigger than it actually is.
