Pure, sleek, elegant. Changes in height & contrast of materials add interest. Horizontal fencing & decking add a sense of space. Planting is simple & architectural. It really doesn't have to be complicated!
In small spaces less is definitely more - yet this clever design adds height through the stepped seating & raised beds, unity through repetition of shapes & fabulous interest through the use of plants with different shapes, forms & textures. Again... integrated seating saves space.
How about this for a fabulous evening relaxation or entertaining space! Love the restrained use of materials & colours - the purple accent colour in the plants being picked up in the accessories - a great outdoor living room.
On a tight budget? This has been achieved with a recycled timber, some breeze blocks & a lick of paint. The trick to the style is to stick to a limited colour palette which brings harmony - but also a great contrast in the textures of the materials.
Integrated seating saves space & does away with the necessity for furniture which could clutter the space. This tiny garden even has a water feature. And restricted planting space doesn't mean there can't be plenty of plants!
