While a sprawling backyard to roam in was once the norm, inner-city living has led our gardens to slowly, but surely, shrink. But small needn’t mean uninspiring. There’s no need to say goodbye to the green leafy paradises of our dreams when you can take a small space – such as a courtyard, balcony or front yard – as an opportunity to get creative with maximising the outdoor spaceavailable to you.
Space saving solutions, such as vertical gardens, statement pot plants and climbing vines, are all perfect for pushing the boundaries of even the smallest yard. All you need is a bit of imagination and these small garden design and landscaping ideas to transform a humble patch into an urban oasis.
