Design tips for tricky spaces

A classic design tip for long thin gardens is to divide the space and create a flow on the diagonal. This gives the illusion of a wider space, brings added elements of interest to the garden and creates separate functional zones.

This family garden has lots of play elements added and by integrating them into the garden the space remains unified. In fact all of the play features are really the focal features which make the garden.

Large boulders look fantastic and are great for climbing, The feature walls are just the right height for adults to sit and for children to walk along. Even the mowing edges (designed to make maintenance much easier) makes a fun 'trail' for children to follow as they go on adventures through the garden, These features also visually draw the eye through the garden.., another classic designer tip.
