Garden Design Tips for Small Spaces
Customers in Wakefield and the surrounding West Yorkshire areas often ask us to design and install elements for small gardens that make the most of their limited space. By implementing modern features such as block paving, light colours or artificial lawns, we can transform a cramped space into a bright, spacious-looking garden.Here are some of the tricks that our landscapers and driveway specialists use to achieve this effect:
Selective Planting – Too many contrasting colours can make your garden appear cluttered or overly dense. Instead, we draw the eye to a few attractive plants of a similar style. We typically plant them in the corner of your garden or along a border for additional space.
Visual Lines – Our landscapers and driveway specialists understand the power of using lines to create the illusion of an expansive environment. Block paving, decking and other hard landscaping materials can vastly improve the look of your Wakefield patio, introducing visual lines that run horizontally to make your garden appear wider.
A Central Element – By taking inspiration from formal gardens and introducing a central focal point, you draw the eye to a single element of the landscape. For example, a central lawn complete with asymmetrical borders can make your garden feel better organised. As a low maintenance yet aesthetically pleasing option, our team can provide artificial lawns that require very little upkeep.
Lighter Colours – Small and overgrown gardens can appear dark, especially in built-up areas. By introducing pale colours into your Wakefield garden, our landscapers can brighten your environment for a more appealing space overall. It’s worth noting that brightly coloured fencing and block paving will reflect the sunlight better than the dark alternatives.
