Having a large garden is a dream of many. But the available space is often limited, especially in the city or by choice, to avoid too much maintenance work, and in some cases the budget does not leave much room for a large patch of greenery either. No worries, though. Great style can be achieved even in the smallest garden, especially if you accentuate it with bluestone. Get inspired!
Playing with structure in your small garden
A few square metres of grass surrounded by a high wall is probably not your idea of a dream garden. If you are the proud owner of an urban garden, it certainly pays to experiment with different textures and structures. For example, add a number of Belgian bluestone tiles to your small garden, such as the EnoStyl Clear tiles or Scoured tiles. Place them square to each other, but leave some gaps in between. Fill up the open spaces with moss, sedum and other low-growing plants. Moving more towards the edges of your garden, you can opt for slightly taller plants, such as ferns, and even larger shrubs against the walls. This way, your small piece of heaven remains interesting to look at and you create an optically enlarging effect.
Transform your patch of green into a woodland garden
By not laying your bluestone tiles all too neatly or straight, but instead installing them seemingly haphazardly in your city garden, you instantly achieve a rugged effect – especially if you choose tiles with a Frosted or a Sawn finish.
Complete the forest feeling by allowing not only mosses and grasses to grow between the tiles, but also some taller plants. Of course, make sure that your little pathway remains accessible.
A winding pathway
Or how about an urban garden where it’s not just a few tiles, but a real garden path meandering all the way through? Make a small winding road of the cottage style KlinkStone Flagstone or of rough antislip split pavings, for example, to provide structure and demarcate the planting. You’ll be creating a green oasis that will captivate visitors all year round.
