When people want to make the most of their Glasgow garden, but sometimes they’re not blessed with space.
Now for us this isn’t an issue, as we know the possibilities that a small garden space presents but many people often have the ‘why bother’ mentality. ‘Why should we spend time and money on such a small space?’
The size seems like a limiting factor and an overly decorative or heavily planted garden can be time consuming to maintain and tidy once the winter weather has done its worst.
As an example for this blog in particular, let’s take a look at a style that many take inspiration from, which is Japanese gardens.
Perhaps a scary thought for some but this need not be the case. Oriental gardens and in particular Japanese gardens are all about the aesthetic beauty and serene, tranquil appearance of the space.
