How Landscaping Can Make the Most of a Small Space

A qualified landscaping professional will give you the assistance you require for getting your garden to look its best even when the space you have is minimal. It is often a challenge to get a smaller landscape designed on your own because you might not be aware of how to make the most of a space – or to at least make it look larger. This is where an expert can help.

  • Several points of landscape design should be considered to get the most out of the space you have and the plants you want to have. Negative space can be calculated by a professional to review how well a space is organized and how a sense of balance between active and light spaces can work. Negative space often entails the use of a small lawn or a courtyard among other attractive garden features.

  • A pathway can be added to the space if necessary. However, rather than a traditional concrete path, stepping stones are less invasive and less likely to cut the space in half and make it look even smaller.
  • A small wall can be established between one garden space and a lawn section.  However, it is better to keep verticals to the edges, otherwise your small area will look even smaller. Having vertical hangers around the walls or even a water feature against one end of the area will make it more attractive and add interest.
  • The colours of the plants could also be checked. Landscapers often prefer using cooler colours that are not overly bold in small spaces. Such colours are attractive and allow for a more wide open appearance. Anything too bold will make the space feel to enclosed and smaller..


All of these points should help keep the space in your landscape utilized without closing it in too much. There may be limits on the amount of physical materials that should be placed into one small area.. An expert can help you figure out what is right for your small garden so it will be prepared carefully. This will add a stronger overall look to your space without being too complex.

But what’s even more important is the process of simplification. Simplification is all about getting your space to look cleaner and more appealing. This includes knowing what kind of plants to add them being too hard to maintain. Large plants that tend to take up a lot of space and grow wild should be avoided. But even some small plants can be really invasive and take over a space. This is something to be avoided if you want to have a garden that suits your small area.

Landscaping does not have to be overly complicated if you consider how a plant grows and what conditions it likes best. Be certain that you look at how a professional can assist you to establish a good landscape in even the smallest spaces in your property.
