Include built in seating in a corner to keep your garden from feeling crowded. Use a living wall to add lushness where ground space is limited. Step back and look at your yard with fresh eyes, then simplify and tidy. Even if your outdoor space seems overwhelming, pick just one thing that you most want to change.

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.

Geraldina Krantz Garden Design, 2018-04-25 17:22:01. While there is much to be said for the cottage garden, with a rich array of varied planting (indeed, it is the real master gardener who can pull this off), there is a power to seeing a quantity of one plant that is genuinely affecting. Russell Page, one of the great twentieth century landscape designers said it well: the most striking and satisfying visual pleasure comes from the repetition or the massing of one simple element.
