Landscape designer Matt Leacy
shares his tricks to make small-scale
outdoor spaces look large



  1. Break up the visuals leading out into
    the space so everything isn’t revealed
    as soon as you open the door. By
    angling the decking or changing up
    the paving patterns you can direct
    the eye where you want it to go.

  2. Play with levelling and break the
    space up into different zones, which
    will help to make the space feel more
    expansive and multi-purposeful.

  3. Vertical gardens provide height
    without encroaching on space – from
    hanging pots and baskets through
    to pallet planters and trellis planter
    holders. If wind is an issue, consider
    installing a trellis with a tough
    climber to create a windbreak.
