Nowadays, when spaces tend to be reduced, something that usually worries is the use of them in an efficient way.

For this, as I have always advised, it is best to turn to a best landscape designer, who will know how to plan that space sifted by a specific garden style and a practical distribution of it.

For amateur people who want to make their own garden, I can advise you not to be scared as small as it may be, in the minimum space you can get amazing results while remaining sensible.

It is often a very common obstacle to think “total, in these 20 meters what I’m going to do, I leave it flat and that’s it”. Obviously it is a solution as comfortable as it is ugly, because no matter how beautiful a floor can be equated to the beauty of a small piece of landscaped garden and it shows on the part of those who make that decision that they do not like to live in contact with nature.

Once we know the possibilities we have, we will get to work taking into account the advice I suggest for this type of small spaces:

– Light colored plants (glaucous, gray, golden) , variegated, yellowish … etc) give optical sensation of greater space since the light colors reflect more light and more clearly than green.

The same sensation is found with vegetables with tiny leaves , which cause the psychological effect of distance , as opposed to vegetables with large leaves that stifle the feeling of living space.

– Create different areas , even if they are very small because this optically gives a greater sense of whole than leaving a unified or diaphanous area where the view loses the real perception of the comparative space and “dwarfs” optically. Everyone knows that when we began to furnish an empty room (which seemed small) is when we realize the real dimension of your space.

– In small spaces, we will NOT use grass and if we do it, it will be in very specific areas.

– If we create parterres they will never be straight (blunt) but finished in peaks (trapezoidal) or in the form of ovals and ellipses.
