Do not forget lighting to extend the use of your yard well into the night.
Think big. Ample pathways and gathering spaces are inviting, and large features are engaging in any size space. You can maximize the livability of a small yard by taking advantage of changes in terrain to segment the space into different living areas.
I remember as a beginning garden designer in California being taken aside by my mentor, a transplanted Englishwoman who owned the nursery, walking through a vast block of salvia, and being told that I could, if I liked, use 30 of them, not the three or five I had typically been planting. It was a liberating moment.
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.
