Needless to say – here the focus is all about maximising potential. More important than ever is a clear understanding of the needs and desires of the client, as these represent the very first step in deciding on a strategy to tackle the project. We always try and open the space up, give the impression of a more expansive garden and apply whichever style works best for the client and the space. Often the extension of a small home, small garden design is undertaken with the effort to extend the space of a building – bring the outdoors in and the indoors out. An inventive design layout can blend both spaces seamlessly.
Small garden ideas work best when at their boldest and strongest – but manipulating statement styles where space is at a premium is a real challenge. Collaborative sessions with the client are imperative and a crystal clear brief of variety and purpose is the bible for small garden design.
