Thus, for example, will delimit where will the plants and where there will be a space for outdoor furniture .
Do not add too much variety
If you are a plant lover, you can not choose which one you want in your garden, but remember it is a small space so you can not abuse the varieties.

Resist the temptation, as I always say, in decorating small areas: less is more.
Decorating with Plants
To give a sense of depth to small gardens plants can put darker colors in front of finer texture. Remember, you must also place smaller plants in front, and the highest not hide.
Colors to Walls

On the other hand, the dark color gives the illusion of depth and place your plants in front of that wall will give an air of mystery … you can try to combine the two tricks.
You can add decorative stones and other elements to highlight some groups of plants or special plants. Make sure that the rocks combined with the colorful landscape and remember not to overdo it with these ornaments for gardens , and you could get exactly the opposite of what you want. If you put too many accessories could make it look clutter your small garden.
