When there isn’t much ground area using the vertical space helps to provide more visual interest without cluttering the garden. Some ways of doing this include attaching planters to walls, hanging baskets and troughs from fence posts or mounting them along the top of fence panels.
To provide a definitive guide on garden design I would need to be writing a 500-page book, so we will only look at the absolute basics in this article. One thing I have learnt over the past twenty plus years as a garden designer is that few of us are totally content with our gardens. Despite the immense pleasure we derive from them, there is always something that could be better.
Level changes like steps, raised beds, or a raised pool give the garden an extra dimension, make it appear more interesting and distract attention away from the boundaries. Raised beds and retaining walls for pools can also double as seats if they are between 450mm and 600mm high. Creating extra useable space in the garden by introducing features that have a dual purpose it more useable as well as more attractive and this automatically gives the illusion of more space.
Design garden is perfect for those who live in the city but still want to consider creating a garden for their patio. There are different designs for your patio garden and it’s up to you to think of the color combinations, the pots, how they are arranged or aligned, etc. You can release your creativity in designing your own patio garden, after all, it’s yours and it’s going to be your pride and joy. These are mainly guidelines because in designing, you have no rules. You can choose from many varieties regarding patio garden design from modern to classic, whatever suits you, really.
