- Building a seating furniture:
If you want to build a small city garden then the first thing you can do is build a table or bench set in the center of the garden, which will make your garden look attractive, as it is the focal point of your garden where you can sit and can enjoy the scenery.
As it is the most important part of the garden, then you should try to make it more attractive as possible.
- Screening from adjoining garden:
If you want to screen your garden from the adjoining garden then the best you can do is that plant a row of bamboo plants or any other small trees like olive trees. By planting these trees, they will make a boundary along the length of garden, making it more prominent.
And also by planting same plants, your garden will reflect a sense of harmonious unity. The verticality of the trees will screen your garden from the adjoining one. You can also see the recommendation of garden expert Matthew Wilson on what trees you can grow in your garden for screening.
- Using Low Plants:
You can grow low beautiful plants along the path and towards the seating area. This will help you save money from the large expensive pavement in the Small City Garden.
The benefit of growing low plant is not only to save money but it also brings the greenery close to the seating area of the garden where you can easily enjoy their beauty. If you want to learn what types of low plants you can grow in your small garden then see the rock garden plant selection gallery.
- Gravel & Paving in the Lawn:
Traditionally there is always a lawn in the center of the garden, where surface is covered by low-maintenance granite- chip gravel. This area can be used as the seating or dining area which is the focal point of the garden. If you want to maintain the balance of the garden then the best way is to maintain the lawn, hence retaining the size and shape of the gravel.
Now we will talk about paving in the lawn. You can build a variety of paving surfaces, which has been discussed previously. These paving helps to give the garden a textural interest, and also changes in scale. It also prevent your garden with the sensation of concrete garden, this sensation is really bad for your garden. This sensation can occur as a side effect when you are trying to make a hard landscape, or a heavy low maintenance space. You can blend the granite chips with stone paving and timber decking, which also one of the variety of paving.
