Small garden spaces are very dear to my heart: it’s how I started off in garden design over 25 years ago, creating the tiniest and therefore trickiest of gardens, and this continues to be something I love to do. So when a prospective client calls and describes their “impossible dank and shady courtyard which we’re desperate to turn into an outdoor room; we’d love you to help us but maybe you don’t design small gardens”, you can guess what my answer is:
“Size doesn’t matter”.
The size of your outside space doesn’t matter. You have it, you can do something with it and it’ll make your life better. It really will.
