Landscape designer Matt Leacy
shares his tricks to make small-scale
outdoor spaces look large
- 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.
- Play with levelling and break the
space up into different zones, which
will help to make the space feel more
expansive and multi-purposeful.
- 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.
