Creating More Space With Flowers & Colour

You may have come across this problem before, here’s the scenario…

Within the grounds of your own home, you have some space that you wish to make larger but don’t have a budget or space to create more room.

Don’t worry! as professional landscapers, we have a solution or two that we can use to make an area bigger than it actually is…and it’s very simple!

Cool Colour Will Do The Trick!

This creates more distance and allows your flower borders and beds to appear different from standing anywhere within your own home and around your garden at certain points.

  • Reds
  • Yellow
  • Orange

You want to be using these types of flowers close to the house and focus on colder looking colour and in particular the blue variety. These colour together have a habit to seem more distant than they really are further up the garden you go, and it’s better to slowly alternate the changes between the two types of colour so that it’s not too noticeable.

Just remember to use a nice bright glowing colour and then gradually move to more cooler blues, which will give the illusion that a small area is bigger.

Playing with Sizes and Length’s

An alternative or addition to the first method is to change the size and length of any walkway that can be dividing anything by your garden, for example;

You have a walkway that’s 15 feet (4.5m) in length, and want to create it seems that the more distance there is the narrower it becomes.

Now if the width of that walkway is 2 ft (0.6 m) and 15 ft (4.5m) in length, the sizes will change from 2 ft (0.6m) and cut to 0.5 ft – 1 ft in width at the finish.

Just repeat the method when you want to create length, remembering to always come out with the width and then come back in the further you are away.

So give these a try next time you want to create the illusion of having a bigger garden. If you feel like you would like some help from us at your home you can get in touch with us on our contact page.
