Since space is a constraint, you can make the use of curves to make the area look bigger. Curves made in a series of networks make the small space garden look bigger. All you need to do is connect those curves. Parallel curves can also be used and they help to give the impression that the space of the garden is larger than it actually is.
A decorative garden is one that focuses on plants that will have the largest visual impact per square foot without any consideration for edible, or in some other way functional plant. A functional garden on the other hand focuses on maximizing the yield per square foot of plants that can be eaten or used in some other productive manner (i.e. Aloe Vera for burns). Finally, a hybrid garden focuses on a cross between these two different concepts. It tries to produce a high yield of useful plants, while at the same time creating visual interest within the garden space.
Break up the current soil in your garden and add bagged or compost garden soil. The earlier you start, the better, so you can get to work on this part the assignment in the winter or fall.
Only trees and the length of the garden are not enough. Textures can also play a big role in increasing the length of a small garden. However you can select your texture, you may also use brick for the patio area, natural stone for the walking space and a crushed rock that differentiate with the environments for the remaining of the area.
One similarity when landscaping the front compared with the backyard is that in general it is the simpler designs that work the best. In fact having a simple design is even more essential in the front yard than in the back. Not only will this help to make your house more inviting but it will also keep the cost down - you dont want to be spending a lot of money on landscaping a yard that you will hardly ever use other than to walk to your front door. That said, we dont want to play down the importance of a good front yard design either. Place attractive and colorful items in your front yard, but dont over do it.
