It should not be a separate entity but act as a complete unit with the house. Garden design ideas for small area generally aim to dress up the house more than formally plant trees. It can also be a peaceful area where you can rest during the evenings.
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.
In general when you are landscaping a front yard you will have to use different principles and plant selection than you would in the backyard. This is because you are designing for a different purpose for the two different yards. The back garden is very much a place of solitude where you can relax and enjoy yourself in a personal space. In the front you are trying to create an inviting atmosphere, and one through which people can easily access your house. Because of this you will have to think slightly differently when creating your landscape design.
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.
Landscape design cannot be described in a few simple terms. There are several different landscape design architecture jobs that one can choose to focus on: Land Development, Site Planning, Urban/Town Planning, Regional Landscape Planning, Park and Recreation Planning, Land Development Planning, Ecological Planning and Development, Historical Preservation and Reclamation, and Social and Behavioral Aspects to Landscape Planning. With the scope of the profession so broad and the projects so varied, landscape architecture is sure to encompass any aspect of landscape design.
