Designer’s Top Tip . . . for small gardens

Small Garden Climber

Transform this place into your favourite ‘room’!

Remember that two thirds of your view is boundary so make the most of this vital growing space with climbers such as Trachelospermum jasminoides or Star Jasmine. This wonderful plant is evergreen, self clinging, will grow in full sun or dappled shade and is frost hardy.  It has beautifully scented white flowers in mid to late summer.

Elsewhere use simple planting and be bold with scale.  Repeat planting and single architectural specimen plants will create a calm, uncluttered environment.  Using similar materials as those inside the house for lighting and at ground level will also lend themselves to a soothing atmosphere.  Perfect for those summer evenings.
