Every garden can be a source of ultimate pleasure regardless of the size. A small garden can provides everything you need to go out and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. And the best part is that these pleasures are free once you have planted your little garden. Once the work is finished, comes the time pull out your favorite deck chair and relax!
Japanese “Zen” garden design idea
The advantage of a small garden is that it is relatively easy to maintain, once you have established your layout and design. Do not be afraid when designing your small garden. The examples here show the great things that can be achieved in a relatively small space. Your little garden, like any other garden, should include an area to relax and chat with friends. A small porch or patio meets this important requirement. You must also arrange pleasant shady areas if you want to keep a cool head when the sun is shining at its hottest. Trees provide the perfect natural shade, but if you do not have old trees, a very good alternative would be to hang an attractive canopy over the desired area. Alternatively, if you have enough space, you could build a small gazebo.
Gorgeous patio design in a small garden
When you plan your small garden, you need to consider what kind of design for the space available and what kind of garden fits there. If you have a very busy lifestyle, you will likely choose a low-maintenance garden, unless you know someone who can maintain your garden for you. Gardens with low maintenance requirements are generally placed on fixed structures, rather than on complex plantings. The ideal inspiration for this would be a Japanese ‘Zen’ garden, where the plants are reduced to a minimum. Importance is placed on other elements such as water and stone. The Zen garden for relaxation and meditation is designed so that it would be a haven of peace and tranquility.
If you are a passionate gardener and plant lover, you’d make the most of your small garden to indulge your passion. Do not just look on the ground to create your planting. Create different levels with raised beds and large planters. This will add a visual dynamism to your small garden. Think about how to get height in your equipment and may use free-standing trellises to define garden spaces or areas. If you have no place for them, use decorative planters hung on your house walls to extend your plants up. There are endless ways to create a personal paradise in your small garden, so why wait any longer, begin to design it.
