There are various factors which influence your decision while selecting plants such as budget constraints, pre-existing plants (if any), proportion, the style of gardening, maintenance requirements and weather conditions.

  • A small area garden costs less than the larger areas. However, if you for expensive specimen plants or design your garden in stages, then the expenses can be a bit higher.
  • It is better to eradicate pre-existing plants than to plant trees around them. However, you can save the plants and use them in designing the garden by moving them to a different area.
  • Great care should be taken about the balance of the small gardens. A small border is a good border for a small garden. Use of irregular designs along with curved lines looks interesting.
  • Your gardening style plays a crucial role in designing your garden. You like a colourful garden, a botanical garden, a fragrant garden, or a cottage garden; it is totally up to your preference. Since you have a limited space, every plant you grow counts.

    Thank you so much for sharing your tips and advice about small gardens – last year, my partner and I moved into a home that was awkwardly built on the block of land by the previous owners, leaving us with a pokey little front yard, a matching side yard, a driveway and carport taking up most of the other side and no backyard to speak of. We have been despairing over what to do (my partner had grand visions of beautiful rose gardens and the like) but you have given me some things to think about. I think we can successfully achieve a small garden that we’re proud of!
