Landscape Design Tips for a Smaller Garden

By LarryR
December 10, 2012

Want to make your small garden look larger? Try using a color scheme that includes plants with mostly white blossoms and green leaves. Add some green shrubbery and a colorful accent plant as well. The green and white combination gives the illusion of more space. Add some curving paths. They will also trick the eye into seeing the space as larger than it actually is.

That really is stunning. Thanks for sharing. I've heard that an all white flower garden looks really gorgeous in the moonlight.
