Landscaping Dublin: Small Back Garden

dublin landscaping

If you have anything that might be considered a small, narrow or 3 bed semi D sized garden the golden rules to making it feel greater [in size], are really very simple.

  • Where possible, eliminate all symmetry – Think of it like a small bathroom or kitchen, the smaller the space, the smaller the floor or/ and wall tile you would use.
  • Make the back drop one colour and as bright as possible – The bathroom/ kitchen analogy in mind, despite what that dude on the fence painting advert does, you would never paint it dark green. Well you might, but logically brighter colours reflect light and darker colours absorb it. It is why leaves are green.
