 Small Can Be Big

  • Consider Growing Up- Adding levels to your small space through terraced grounds or decks can add extra space.
  • Give It a Rest – Find a spot where you can sit and relax, off to the side. Small grounds like office courtyards or city terraces are great for built in seating. Add a retaining wall with seating or place a bench under two trees and design out from there.
  • Walk Around- Make the most of your garden with a walkway or path. Winding paths create beautiful views with the illusion of more space.
  • Plant in Layers- Much like adding levels, planting in layers can add more to your little space. Choose a tree or two, some vine plants, a shrub or so and small flowers. Your garden has a vertical view that makes it larger.

Irregular Can Be Incredible

Natural beauty is sometimes challenging. Sloping land and rocky edges make designing tricky.  A professional landscaper like Landwork Contractors can help you tame the wild with a few techniques. These techniques include:

  • Retaining Walls: Retaining walls keeping land where it is. Walls with custom masonry also create new spaces and beautiful accents.

  • Pathways and Steps- Installing pathways or steps can create a safe place to walk on hilly or uneven ground. They can also add focus and drama to unusual grounds.
  • Spacing Out- Seating, fire pits, patios, and geometric designs can all be placed in nooks of your irregular yard, leaving you with lots of areas for entertaining or relaxing.

Narrow Is Nice

Many of our older homes have narrow lanes of green. These strips of land can be turned into backyard retreats with a few steps.

  • Compartments- Much like your home, a narrow yard can be divided into outdoor rooms. Section off blocks for different uses. An area towards the front for entertaining. One block for gardening or a hobby.

  • Featured Fun- Installing features can create purpose and calm. Place a fire pit to the side for entertaining. A water feature in the back for relaxing. The possibilities are endless.
  • Illusions of Grandeur- Winding paths and stonework can make narrow spaces seem wider. Plus, the right path can make the sections of your narrow yard flow together.
