As seasoned professional landscapers, we have the privilege of working on gardens of all sizes. While large gardens may dazzle with their expansiveness, small gardens have a unique charm that should not be underestimated. In fact, we firmly believe that having a small garden is not a problem at all; rather, it presents a wonderful opportunity to create a space that is not only visually appealing but also highly practical. This small garden makeover will help you see how smaller spaces can be practical and stunning at the same time!
One of the key advantages with this smaller garden is its manageability. With limited space, maintenance becomes significantly easier and less time-consuming. The client now finds themselves spending more time enjoying their outdoor space rather than toiling away at its upkeep.
Adding height with a Wooden Pergola
We highly recommend incorporating a small pergola into your outdoor space. Installing a pergola not only adds a touch of elegance but also provides several practical benefits. Its stylish design enhances the aesthetics of your garden, offering a delightful space for relaxation and entertainment. Moreover, the pergola’s shade and lattice structure create an ideal environment for climbing plants, fostering a serene and green ambiance. This pergola created the ideal space for a small patio and setting area giving the customer a new vies of their garden and home.
Small Porcelain Paving patio areas
Installing a small porcelain paving patio under the pergola has numerous benefits. Porcelain offers unmatched durability, low maintenance requirements, and resistance to stains, making it ideal for high-traffic areas. Its sleek, contemporary appearance complements the gardens modern design while providing a safe and comfortable surface for relaxation. Moreover, porcelain’s heat and moisture resistance ensure longevity, making it a smart investment for enhancing the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your pergola area. We also installed a larger cream porcelain patio outside of the french patio doors, this gave the client another seating area within the garden.
Raised Sleeper Flowerbeds adding a touch of elegance
Installing wooden sleeper flowerbeds offers numerous benefits for your garden. These versatile and aesthetically pleasing structures not only enhance the overall landscape but also provide a practical solution for defining and organizing your flowerbeds. The natural look of wooden sleepers adds a rustic charm, blending seamlessly with the surrounding vegetation. Additionally, their durability ensures long-lasting support for the plants, preventing soil erosion and facilitating proper drainage. Each raised flowerbed is secured with large battens so there is little to no movement and are lined with a waterproof membrane to protect the internal wood from rotting.
Screening Trellis to hide a shed
Living in the UK we are all familiar with having to view your garden from windows keeping shelter form the rain. One of the problems we had is that the garden shed was the main feature you were drawn to when looking out from the house so we decided to hide this with some wooden screening. We installed a modern screening trellis to expertly conceal the shed, harmonizing it with the surrounding environment. Utilizing durable and weather-resistant timber, we carefully craft the trellis to blend seamlessly with your garden’s slatted fences. Its elegant design will not only obscure the shed but also add a touch of natural charm. It also works great for climbing plants so we strategically placed one of the raised flowerbeds in front of it.
To finish off the back section of the garden we used a large “black Ice” gravel which is a blend of black, grey and white. This blend of gravel offers a modern look and is extremely practical, the larger gravel size binds well together and holds firmly when walked on. Garden furniture was added and solar lights around the Pergola finishes off the garden well!
