Your garden doesn’t have to be a huge space in order to make it an area you can enjoy with friends and family, or even by yourself! Here are our top tips for those people with small garden spaces to be able to maximise their space and host.

"For really small spaces, a great space saver is stacking or folding chairs."

Create Zones

Separate your garden into different “zones”. To create these zones, you can use garden furniture, plants and outdoor rugs as separators – being careful to place the former based on where the sun is for most of the day. This way you will be able to define areas for dining and lounging and make these spaces feel larger than they are.


Choose Compact

When choosing your outdoor dining area, go for something compact that is comfy and can therefore double up as a place to relax. For really small spaces, a great space saver is stacking or folding chairs that can be brought out only when needed.

Reflect Light

To make your space appear bigger make sure it is well lit with outdoor patio lights – patio heaters add warmth and double up as light – and add an outdoor mirror to your garden to create the illusion of more space and reflect the light around the area.


Plants & Greenery

The staple colour of a garden is green, but if you don’t have enough space to have a lawn then plants are extra important. Vertical planters are a great way to add greenery to a small space, or potted foliage.
