The particularity of small gardens is they can be viewed at one glance and the limited space often makes you make choices. You will not be able to plant in your land all the plants that you like and add all the elements that you like or all the decorations that you like. We have collected some fabulous small garden ideas to help you arrange a beautiful courtyard by yourself.

The first step in your landscape design is to get rid of the mess and clutter. If you want your garden to look clean, try to find a place where you can store your things. Remember that a courtzard is not a place for storage so try to remove anything that is not necessary, and create a green space and provide access to it.

The colors in a small garden should also be limited. Cold colors make the git appear larger. You can compensate for the limited color palette with a variety of structures. Try to get the maximum of space by placing elements in a harmonious way. Change levels as the different heights deceive the eye and create a visual effect of a bigger space. Working with perspectives is always a good idea because in this way the small space will appear larger.


Carefully select what plants and flowers you will grow in your courtyard. Look at the small garden design ideas in the gallery and see some fantastic suggestions. If the central part of a small space is occupied by a lawn the space seems as if it is larger than it actually is. Choose evergreen shrubs to surround the lawn.

Small gardens have their own appeal. They are an extension of the home and show the feelings and tastes of the owner. Planning the design of a small outdoors is much easier. It needs not a huge number of plants to create dramatic effects. Another very important element in the design of a tiny garden is the proper lighting, especially if you want to enjoy your outdoors after dark. It is necessary to equip the backyard with landscape lighting and you can enjoy having dinner in the evening hours in the open air. LED lamps, recessed floor or deck lights perfectly emphasize the difference in level height. The lights will help you create accents on certain plants or flower pots. You can use solar lights or portable light fixtures which can be used both in the garden and on the terrace. Last but not least, a small garden is much easier to maintain, isn’t it?
