This is a very small garden but totally inspiring by the variety of plantings and artistic elements that Have been incorporated. Many who struggle to maintain big acreages could see the benefits of a gardening in a smaller space. How often do you hear of people developing their large gardens into a series of small rooms. Sometimes it is difficult to visualise landscaping a very large space and find it easier to work on a smaller space at a time.

With this in mind we have some wonderful books in the Library dealing with this topic
