1940s Garden Design – Developing a little garden involves using every centimetre of area, and using visual tricks to help make the garden appear bigger. The plan for a little garden must be millimeter correct as there is no room for adjustment if the plan is found to be incorrect when constructing the garden.
Lots of people think a plan is not essential when they are landscaping a very small garden, whereas the absolute opposite is true. This is especially important to prepare a plan where area is limited to ensure that the finished garden meets the practical requirements and looks great too. Preparing a detailed garden design plan will ensure all the functional areas will be the correct size for their purpose and will fit into the garden. A great garden design plan allows you to check that the garden will work before you approach landscaping contractors and start spending money. A few well-prepared 3-D visuals bring the garden to life and help you see how the garden will feel once it is constructed. The garden model and visuals are the last check that the spaces all work in a harmonious relationship with one another ensuring that the garden is a comfortable, relaxing space in which to spend time.
When designing a tiny garden an easy layout with clean lines and strong geometric shapes works best. Typically the design should not be overly complicated. If curves are essential a central group which may be either lawn, planting, paving or a way is preferable to fussy freehand figure.
In a little garden is it essential to use a limited plant palette – too many different grow species will make the space appear busy and closed in. It is also important to make clever use of all available planting space. Climbers are a great way to bring in greenery without trying out valuable space, and shrubs like Garrya elliptica, Fatshedera lizeii and Itea illicifolia, Ceanothus and Rhamnus alaternus perform well when secured to a wall or fence. In courtyards where there are no borders place trellis panels in floor mounted troughs. Green surfaces work extremely well in small spaces. Sedum roofs on sheds, bin stores, and other covered spaces are a great way to introduce low-maintenance planting into smaller gardens. 1940s Garden Design.
