Small Garden Landscaping Ideas from the Professionals
Maximise the impact of limited outside space with professional small garden landscaping. Just because you have a compact garden area to work with, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be every bit as stunning, inviting and functional as a larger space. You can do a lot more with a small garden space than you would think and what’s great about small spaces is that the time and money spent on maintenance and upkeep is minimal too. If you’re shopping around for some great ideas for your small garden, we have some for you and we can help you with them too.
- Herb gardens – these are ideal for small spaces, as they can be created in planters or even attached to walls and fences in vertical hangers. We can complete the look with a few creative pavers/pathways, a comfy bench and maybe even a water feature. Before you know it, your small herb garden will become your favourite tranquil spot.
- Feature gardens – if you don’t have space for garden beds and a lawn, and you are working with a courtyard type of space, we can really have a lot of fun. Consider installing planters and pot plants to fill up corners with a touch of greenery. We can incorporate stones and pavers to create a focal area with some outside benches, or even an outside table/couches will give the space a more social element. Sun loungers are also a great idea if you get enough sunshine in the space. For a splash of playful colour, we can add hanging plants, wall planters and similar, and include your favourite flowers and herbs.
- Barbecue areas – small spaces need to be both attractive and functional. If you have a small garden or patio area that you are working with, we can convert it into a mini garden barbecue area. There’s no reason why your barbecue area can’t be lush, green and attractive. We can even feature bird and butterfly feeders to create a more tranquil and natural appeal.
These are just a few basic and simple ideas for garden landscaping in very small spaces. At EarthLinks Landscaping, we also work with slightly bigger spaces that are also considered “small”. Perhaps you only have a few square metres to work with, but still need to cater to the kids and pets. Maybe you just want a beautiful outside area that adds value to the property and aesthetic appeal to the home. Whatever your reasons for wanting to re-do your small garden, we can help you at EarthLinks Landscaping.
