Garden design ideas – perfect for small spaces

June 14, 2010

Fed up of your tiny garden? Even if your outdoor space is super-small, there’s no reason why you can’t transform it into a beautiful alfresco dining area.

Housetohome.co.uk has pulled together some brilliant ideas to help you make the most of your space. Why not make a feature out of your garden bench?  Use it to display your favourite plants, encourage trailing flowers to grow around it, and even give your wellies a colourful makeover!

If you’re lucky enough to have a small patio, create an outdoor living room. I love this little patio garden from apartmenttherapy.com. Not only is there a cushioned seating area, the parasol and carpet make it ultra cosy.
