When it comes to small gardens in smaller spaces, think big.
Why not try to maximize the potential of your space instead of settling for something drab and boring?
Your garden is what you make it.
You don’t need a huge back yard to create your own garden sanctuary.
12. Mediterranean style garden
Keeping your garden simple gives the illusion of having more space. This Mediterranean style garden is a perfect example of how to look good and keep it simple at the same time. To add a little Mediterranean flair to your garden, try a gravel underfoot and some cacti. This also makes it low-maintenance as well.

11. Install an outdoor spa
Maybe you don’t have a green thumb. And that’s okay! This is a great alternative, and peaceful too! Try creating an outdoor spa area instead of a garden. This mini spa pictured is perfect to use in any weather because it’s covered.
10. Water feature for a small space
Not enough space for a fountain? Try a small water feature instead! The perks? You can find beautiful water features that are compact, and solar powered. In this particular water feature, the slate stepped fountain is run by an integrated solar pump. It also recycles the water in a hidden reservoir, so you don’t have to feel bad about beautifying your garden.
9. Hammock chair
Turn your terrace into an extra relaxation space by investing in this Teardrop hanging chair with intricate hand-woven basket that lets you sit comfortably cocooned while rocking gently. The Teardrop’s galvanized frame is designed to be resistant to the cold and wet of the British weather. See our inspirational outdoor furniture ideas.
8. Add color to an exterior wall
Maybe you have a wall in your garden that is a bit too bright. Or maybe it’s just too light. An easy fix is to paint the wall in a warm color. Maybe even go a bit exotic. This wall is painted in “Hot Brick” by Sandtex masonry paint.
7. Contemporary decking
This contemporary fusion glass panel system by Richard Burbidge is the perfect way to partition your deck without limiting the view or sunlight.
6. Minimalist garden
Minimialist gardens typically feature contemporary surfaces such as wood, slate, and metal. This creates a look that is spacious and sleek. Pictured is a more “zen-like” minimalist garden. It features a built-in bench that is painted in Ivory stone paint and an accent pillow to contrast.
