Small outdoor space - Espaso Verde

1. Pick space-appropriate and multi-purpose garden furniture

Big outdoor furniture tends to overpower an already small space, so it ends up looking (and feeling) smaller. Instead, find patio and garden furniture that fit in well with your space. A garden bench is a practical choice. But a furniture that multitasks is necessary for a small space. Dual-purpose garden furniture is everywhere these days, as demand for living spaces gradually increases. A day bed can be extra seating. Constructing plant boxes can double as makeshift sitting areas and turn the garden into a more relaxing outdoor space. Think of your furniture as multi-purpose and mobile, that can adapt to different uses.

2. Get Some Perspective

Long, straight lines trick you into thinking a small garden landscape is bigger than it is. To take full advantage of this illusion, subtly slant the far end of the lines toward one another and create a focal point. In this small backyard idea, a fence does the job and is enhanced by repeating rows of flowers and a pergola.

3. Use Verticle Space Well

It’s easy to force your great big design idea into your small garden space, but don’t forget that areas are three dimensional and you can use every inch of wall space available. Floating planter pots can give you more space for greenery, and a small ledge in the patio can be a landing strip for bills and mail or even a pretty orchid.

Using Color in garden

4. Use color in your garden

Know when to choose dark or bright colors. Dark colors like blue, purple and pink, have a tendency to make areas look larger than they are. These colors can help make your area feel more spacious. Don’t forget that neutral colors will work with both dark and bright colors to expand the palette of plant material while maintaining the mood you are creating. Dark colors also tend to create a calming and serene atmosphere and will appear cool in even the worst heat. Dark tones create a sanctuary, where you can go to unwind and de-stress from life’s chaos.

Small garden space idea

5. Conquer indoors and dead nooks

In a small outdoor space, it’s easy to ignore the areas that don’t get a lot of immediate view—such as corners of your house or garage. Turn those spots into unexpected focal points, by adding a centerpiece tree, an oversized pot, and flowers or foliage plants for interest. Turn your balcony into a dining area or your patio into a small sitting area where you can entertain guests. Remember, every square inch is precious so there are no rules! Make even your indoor space functional for your home.
