Inspiration for small spaces

WHATEVER THE SIZE OF YOUR GARDEN CLEVER, AND CREATIVE USE OF PAVING CAN MAKE IT LOOK LARGER

 

1. CREATE ZONES:

Break up open areas of a small space so it feels larger, try groupings of furniture and use paving to create paths and small patio areas to create restful seating nooks.

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS:

Sandstone Circles
Sandstone Paving Project Packs 
Old Rectory Cobbles Project Packs
Clay Pavers 
Sandstone Bench 

 

 


 

2. GIVE THE ILLUSION OF LENGTH:

Straight lines trick you into thinking a small courtyard or garden is bigger than it is. This can be accomplished by establishing a focal point and extending paving from that point. Counter intuitive as it may also seem, large paving also creates the illusion of space and are ideal in a contemporary setting.

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS:

Artisan Mirage Linear Paving 
Artisan Mirage Paving and Setts 
Sandstone Obelisk and Spheres 
Petrous Porcelain Albero 
Petrous Porcelain Toscana 

 


 

3. MIX UP THE ELEMENTS:

Sometimes the best small gardens are where there is a mix of unexpected elements that offer dramatic visual relief. Try a mixture of paving materials, lawn, features and 
container plantings to add real interest so that you hardly notice the gardens size.

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS:

Old Rectory Paving, Walling and Cobble Packs 
Sandstone Obelisk and Spheres
Slate Paving & Cobbles 
Granite Paving & Setts
Granite Bench 
Artisan Empire Fencing 
Landscape Decorative Stones 

 


 

4. USE PATHWAYS:

If you really love plants and are limited on space then skip the grass entirely. Stagger your plants for height and include walking paths so you can tend things in the center of the space.

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS:

Clay Pavers 
Sandstone Stepping Stones 
Landscape Decorative Stones 

 

 

 


 

5. RAISED PLANTING AREAS:

You can give your small garden a sense of height by raising up planting, even just a foot or two. Try retaining walls integrated with other hardscape features, such as steps. You’ll help the eye move up and create a pretty visual distraction from the lack of square footage.

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS:

Old Rectory Walling
Artisan Serenity Bullnose Steps
Artisan Mirage Linear Paving 
Granite Cobbles
