Many people don’t realize that size doesn’t really matter when it comes to landscaping. However, the smallest areas will usually show the biggest impact once they have been professionally landscaped. Your small areas could include a garden, back or front porch, and perhaps a small courtyard space. These intimate spaces can really be transformed to be a special little paradise.
Those who live in urban communities know that even though their outdoor areas are small in stature, they still are a very important part of their home life experience. Intimate landscaped areas create spaces to relax, read a good book, admire your garden, and listen to the calming sound of water. From spaces above like balconies and rooftop terraces to ground level patios and porches, your smaller landscaped spaces can be your new favorite hideaway to enjoy the great outdoors or the awesome views of the concrete jungle. Remember, a little green space can make a huge difference.

There are bound to be days where you want a quiet moment to yourself. Examples: tall plants, fences, pergolas and etc.
3. Use outdoor structures to define spaces. You can have a large gazebo for entertaining or you might like a small solid-roof arbor for a reading spot. Whatever activities you enjoy outside, you can have a specific structure designed to define that area.
