Create a Living Wall
Grow your garden up the wall! Living walls are an ideal way to bring colour into your small garden. They can be created with grasses, small shrubs, herbs and even fruit and vegetables. And, instead of purchasing ready-made ones, it’s pretty easy to create your very own! Here’s how.
Trick the Eye
By strategically placing a mirror outdoors, you can create the illusion of more space. Choose a long length mirror or a contemporary style and use it to reflect your lawn or increase light in dark areas. Here are some great ideas for how to do it.
Make it White
To make the rooms in your home look bigger, you’d paint them white, right? So why not use the same trick in your garden! Paint your brickwork and furniture white and it will brighten up your space and make it appear larger. It also makes your colourful plants and accessories really stand out, adding some serious style!
Pot Your Garden
If you don’t have much space for planting flowers and greenery, use pots! You can create a stunning and colourful garden area by plotting anything from small flowers to tall bushy trees and it’s much easier to maintain, bonus!
Planting tall flowers and trees in your garden will give you more colour and decoration without taking up too much space. You will have extra room for seating and decorations without having to choose between the two!
Add Some Colour
Even the smallest space can be transformed with a splash of colour! Bright furniture, accessories and plants will make your garden feel brighter, even in the winter months. Opt for bold colours such as oranges, pinks and blues and you can even turn your wall into a seating area to maximise space.
