Regardless of how large of small your garden space is you can create a space that you will greatly enjoy. It may be a roof space, a small courtyard, a front or backyard but with some landscape gardening help, you can make it an absolute beauty.
If your space is particularly small, the challenge will be figuring out what you can leave out because most times, people want to cram a whole lot of stuff in the garden. Because it is a small garden you will need to plan it very carefully to get the results you have been dreaming of.

It is also a good idea to work with plants that give off a fragrance. You would also do well to add a path preferably a gravel one. With that, you don’t have to trudge mud into the house and you will always know when someone is coming to the door because you can hear the stones crunching.
If all you have to work with is a balcony then have no fear. You can use potted plants to turn it into a haven you will enjoy. Make sure to leave a space for a small table with chairs or even a sun lounger so you can catch some rays.
