Geraldina Krantz. Garden Design. April 21st , 2018.
Dividing a garden, even when small, often has the paradoxical effect of making it seem larger. In small gardens where space is too limited for major focal points, compose a series of mini views within the garden itself, offering interest in every direction while using plants to provide a framework.
Small gardens have a lot more potential than you realize. Whether dealing with a long narrow space behind a vintage home, a cramped backyard that lacks privacy, or a shabby garden at the rear of a brownstone the possibilities are endless. So do not write off your 40 foot by 20 foot outdoor area just yet, with the right design, it could be an incredible garden.
Second, that regulating lines, at least as I employ them, are subjective, it's the designer who identifies and manipulates them to create the garden. And I had to say that the use of the regulating line, more than any other concept, separates professional from amateur design.
The raised beds in my vegetable garden are 5 by 8 feet. It is a rectangular proportion that always looks good, they do not call it golden for nothing.
