Designing a small garden can be a challenge, but with the right materials and a few clever tricks, you can create a beautiful and functional outdoor space that feels much larger than it actually is. At Brett Landscaping, we specialise in creating paving solutions that enhance the beauty and functionality of any outdoor area, no matter how small. Here are some small garden design tips and tricks for using porcelain paving, natural stone, and concrete paving slabs.
One of the best ways to make a small garden feel larger is by creating illusions of space. This can be done by using large-format paving slabs or porcelain tiles in light colours, which will reflect light and create an airy feel. Our porcelain paving options, such as our Eden and Elegante ranges, offer a sleek and modern look that can help transform even the smallest garden into an elegant and sophisticated outdoor space.
When space is at a premium, it’s important to make the most of every inch. By using trellises, wall planters, and vertical gardens, you can add greenery and interest to your small garden without taking up valuable floor space. Our porcelain walling options, such as Coastal Walling or Tempest Walling can be used to add contemporary details to retaining walls or raised garden beds, making the most of your garden’s vertical space while also adding visual interest.
Using different textures and materials can help break up a small garden and make it feel more dynamic. By combining porcelain paving with natural stone or concrete slabs, you can create an interesting and multi-dimensional look. For example, you might choose to use Elegante porcelain for the main patio area and then create a path using natural stone or concrete slabs. Our Aura block paving is also a great option for adding texture and interest when designing a small garden, especially as pathways or borders, with its charming cobbled style.
Choosing the right size of paving slab is crucial when designing a small garden. Large slabs can overwhelm a small space, while tiny slabs can make it feel cluttered. Medium-sized slabs, such as our 900x600mm porcelain products, Eden Limestone ECO & Elegante Quartz ECO, can be used to create a cohesive and balanced look that is both functional and stylish.
When designing a small garden, it’s important to consider the functionality of the space. Do you want a seating area, a dining area, or a combination of both? By carefully planning the layout of your paving slabs, you can create zones that serve different purposes. For example, you might choose to use porcelain paving for a sleek and modern seating area and then add natural stone or concrete slabs for a more rustic dining area.
At Brett Landscaping, we offer a wide range of porcelain, natural stone, and concrete paving slabs that are perfect for small garden design. By following these tips and tricks, you can create a beautiful and functional outdoor space that maximises every inch of your garden.
