This slimline bed has been created outside the front door of a home and has the benefit of plenty of natural light, thanks to the wall cut-outs. It might be small, but it holds a lot of potential for beauty!
Isn't this little garden area a delight? The bed has been left neat, with ground-covering shrubs planted to support more exotic palms. As everything beds in and spreads out, this will be such a gorgeous lead-up to the front door!
Small and difficultly shaped gardens don't have to be a problem, if you have some creativity to play with! The rustic wall here is the perfect backdrop for a beautiful little patch of outdoor heaven.
With the ground cleared and prepared, planting this gorgeous and colourful display will have been exceptionally simple. With a great amount of natural light to play with, sun-loving plants are really going to thrive here!
Painted walls make for a lovely garden spot, so with this vibrant read one already in place, the only thing left to do was to dig a neat border and prepare the soil. We can already tell that this is going to be a charming little plot.
We said that a small garden could be a beautiful one and here's the proof! Small but neat blooms look wonderful en masse and have finished the facade of this home absolutely perfectly.
This border can't be any wider than say, 30cm, but it offers potential far beyond its physical size. The contrast of warm, rustic bricks and smooth paving slabs looks amazing, but with some well-chosen plants, the transition will be complete.
We knew that with some gorgeous blooms planted in this border, that it would look exceptional and here is the proof! The symmetrical layout is working wonders to make this border look mature and well established!
We are really loving these painted exterior walls, as they offer such pretty backdrops for statement blooms. The border here is small, but there is a lot of extra potential, height-wise!
When a super small border is all you have to play with, we encourage you to think outside the box and consider tall, full-leafed varieties of trees and shrubs. They'll look wonderful and create such a pretty little garden alternative.
