Small garden ideas
Small garden ideas were required to answer the client’s brief of: to “create a pretty garden with geometric structure” and to “bring light into a dark dingy space”.
disguising with plants
The garden required all the ‘usual’ amenities, but within the limited space. So once the plants have established they will hide the shed and compost bin, the raised bed will act as additional seating, the washing line base is hidden within a planting hole, the hammock is hidden away and a sleek water butt was added as a ‘feature’ rather than something to disguise.
The new fencing and painted walls, together with the tumbled sandstone paving brings much more light into the space and complements the brickwork of the house and raised bed.
