EXPERIENCE OF JAPANESE MASTERS OF GARDENING
Masters of bonsai art know well how to place a branchy adult tree in one small pot. In a modest pot you can recreate a forest of ten plants. However, as soon as a small garden appears before us, we immediately get lost and lower our hands from despair.
But it's not that hard! Here you 7 key to the design of a small garden.
1. TRAVEL AND FOR WALKING AND RELAXING
If the small garden is thought through carefully, then the walking path can not only be used for its intended purpose (to move from place to place), but also make it an ornamental recreation area.
Decorate the area with plants, make the path natural, turn-based, cover some plots with plants to create a secluded setting.
2. RACING SCULL
The latest trends in landscape design make the stone compositions untouchable. But if you have a small garden, try to make a rocky hill or ro-caria, along which you can walk, climb up through the flowers and stones.
Often in small gardens make such a stony hill on which you can stop, sit on a camouflaged bench of stones.
Z. PERGOLA: BEAUTY INSIDE AND OUTSIDE
Pergola is good because it does not take place at all, but at the same time brings to the small garden the beauty of greenery and flowering. The area under the pergola can vary from 10 to 12 m2, and it itself will consist of cells of different sizes lined with lianas.
Such a design you can make a green room and decorate inside at your discretion
4. FLOATING COLOR
The corner of the facade will become cozy and soft, if it is surrounded by a flower garden adjoining the house.
Such sections can be made completely different plants: bright, colorful or plain. But the main task is to cover the corners, emphasize the beauty of the structure and even add a microclimate to the house.
5. HEART CORNER
Despite the fact that the area of the small garden is small, a place must be reserved for the gardener. Yes, the garden is often unattractive, but it has one indisputable advantage: its owner always has the opportunity ... to eat!
The basic rule when creating a track: do not use straight lines. The path should be winding and "flowing" through the plants.
Arrange the garden in the corner of the recreation area, and then you will have the opportunity to relax among the salad, onions and cabbage.
6. SMALL COVERAGE
In a small garden it is not easy to find a quiet, sheltered, secluded place to hide from the whole world and relax. For such purposes, you can use the corners of the plot.
Where the boron closes, install a wedge-shaped terrace. The terrace cover should be slightly elevated above the site and made of a terraced board perpendicular to the corner. The terrace area should be sufficient to install the table and chairs and also a number of vases with plants

7. MOBILE GREENING
The main secret of a small garden is a combination of three main elements:
- furniture (tables, chairs, benches, etc.)
- auxiliary elements (pots, containers, vases, design elements)
- species and plant varieties of containers.
Correctly combining the elements, you can create either a nook, or a decorative area, or a natural solarium. The main thing is to find the right style and balance between them.
