Expert advice

Garden designer Lisa Aiken shares five small-space planning tips:

  1. Think about your garden's scale and proportion. The previous owner's oversized planters dwarfed the tiny space.
  2. Create a smooth traffic flow with stepping stones, flower beds or railings.
  3. Use lighting strategically Electrical wire was built into the stacking flagstone beds for spotlights that make the garden glow from below.

  4. Incorporate a variety of small containers Pots expand your garden without taking up too much space - and you can easily move them when company arrives.

  5. Keep your plant colour scheme simple Aiken chose white, purple and lime green to accent the beds and containers.
