When selecting plants for a relatively small space, do not go color crazy, stick with a more monochromatic scheme of cooler colors (such as blues, violets, yellows and silvery greens) otherwise you may end up with a garden that feels close and confined.
The practical application that I make of the Golden Ratio involves its sibling, the Golden Rectangle, in which the ratio of the short side to the long side is equal to the ratio of the long side to the sum of both sides (a/b = b/a+b) you probably did not know that landscape architects had to learn math. Numerically, the Golden Rectangle ratio is close to 1: 1.6, a proportion I regularly use to lay out terraces, patios, arbors, and lawns.
Setting a big tree may require machinery or at least multiple gardeners and ample space for maneuvering and stationing amendments and soils, it would be sad to damage or undo some newly planted bed. This seems so obvious, but for lots of gardeners (the author included) a block of fresh perennials may be impossible to avoid planting right away. Be strong, resist the temptation.
