The first concept that any person designing a small garden needs to understand is that raised beds always make for a more vigorous crop. Raised beds can be constructed in virtually any shape imaginable so they are the perfect container for any small garden. For example an urban gardener who only has a condo balcony to work with could build raised bed planters in the corners of the balcony and a long narrow one straight down the front parallel to the railing. This design creates a lot of growing space without taking away much of floor space on the balcony.
Gardening in a Small Space
The years ahead promise new developments and challenges to the ever-broadening profession. So how does one get starting pursuing this must needed profession? First you need to look into landscape and construction architecture programs from the renowned landscape architecture schools that offer fully accredited landscape architecture degrees. A graduate degree in landscape architecture or work equivalent is required in order to obtain a landscape building architecture license. And going to one of the top landscape planning and architecture schools could ensure a bright future of urban planning ahead of you!
Whatever style of garden is being constructed one thing that is important to keep in mind is that in order to create a strong visual appeal, it is better to stagger plants of different heights and colors around one another. This creates texture and dimension to a garden space that can make it seem larger than it really is.
Hiring a landscape architect is highly advisable for homeowners building or renovating a new house, especially one with a huge garden. A professional landscaper can handle interrelated tasks ranging from creating hardscapes (like walkways, wooden bridge, decorative boulders & rocks, trellis, etc.) and softscapes (good soil and plants) to recommending outdoor furniture crafted with quality materials and suitable lighting.
