Creating a garden design for a small back garden

Before Construction

Where do you start when creating a small garden design?


Creating a small garden design can be a real challenge, how do you make the best use of the space? What can be done in such a limited area? How do you make it interesting and inviting?


We are currently employed by a customer in Lincolnshire who has been facing exactly that challenge. They contacted AGI Landscapes and requested a complete redesign of their back garden and to transform it in to a space that they can sit out and enjoy. Additionally the garden had to be low maintenance.



When working with a small area there are a number of challenges to overcome so it is important to get the design right before incurring the costs of construction. By having a garden plan to work to prevents unnecessary rework thereby saving time and money.


Due to the limited space available there has to be careful consideration on how to optimise the use of the garden as well as making it feel inviting and interesting. Working in partnership with the customer we created a garden design which incorporates circles to provide an informal feel to the space, as well as raised beds for easy and low maintenance.
