  • 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! we have a solution or two that we can use to make an area bigger than it actually is…and it’s very simple!.

    1. Cool Colors 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 more colder looking colors and in particular the blue variety. These colors 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 colors so that it’s not too noticeable.

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

    2. 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 and remember to drop by here again at https://www.landscapegardenersglasgow.xyz/ for more hints and tips.
