A small, intimate garden can still have an impact. Consider adding a shade tree or spiraling borders to define the space. Raised beds provide extra seating and make upkeep easier. Hanging lights, or LED lights, can make a small garden magical at night. Flowers smell amazing in the dark and are the perfect place for a nightcap. Inspired by the designs of famous gardeners like Frank Lloyd Wright, we share a few ideas to transform your small garden into a spectacular one.

You can also try container gardening to add lush color and fascinating texture to your yard. You can use pots, hanging baskets, and window boxes as plant containers. This method is especially suitable if you have a small backyard or patio. You can plant a wide variety of plants in containers and use them in a few different ways. You can also use the space as an outdoor room. You can also create a private retreat in your backyard, so be sure to consider your budget.
In addition to planning your garden, you also need to think about accessorizing. While most people feel comfortable with decorating their homes, accessorizing a garden can be a daunting task. But first, think about what colors and textures you like and then extend those preferences to your garden. If you enjoy bold colors, consider using structures and glazed pots in similar hues. And if you want a subtler garden, consider using structures and other objects that match your colors.
A garden can look spectacular even if it is small. Make sure to include a few plants that contrast in color. If you have a favorite color, you can select plants in red pots, or plants in shades that complement it. Choosing plants in different shades of red will create a beautiful display. A garden is never complete without some color. You can find your perfect plant by visiting a local garden center. For some inspiration, visit our garden center and find out more about the theme options they have.
For an entertaining area, choose a shady corner of your yard. Then, fill it with soft plants and cover the space with privacy screening. Make sure to enjoy the space both during the day and at night. Adding large, animated plants like agaves will add drama and depth to any small space. Arranged along the path, this plant will anchor the entire garden and make any flaws disappear.
