Having a small garden may leave you feeling uninspired but small gardens have lots of advantages, one of them being that a small change can have a dramatic effect!

Consider low walls that can double as seating if your garden is too small for furniture, also, why not create the illusion of space with a mirror to double the amount of space or brighten a dark corner. 

Tobermore’s Secura Lite retaining wall is available in a choice of three stunning blended colour options – Bracken, Heather and Slate and it can easily double up as providing beautiful garden seating, or indeed a planting area!

As a mortar-free walling solution, its installation is so simple and cost effective – so why not put your hand to some DIY.  Check out our simple ‘How to Build a Secura Retaining Wall’ video below.

Make your small space eye-catching with some contemporary hard landscaping and complement it with a burst of planting for colour. This can be a great way to create a low maintenance garden.

The latest paving range from Tobermore, Artro, is a versatile and creative option for gardens of any size. Taking inspiration from the European clay paver style, Artro can be laid straight or in a herringbone style which is perfect to bring a creative touch to a small area. For that extra creative edge, you may prefer to choose a contrasting joining material rather than blending in.

Tobermore’s latest paving product – Artro in Autumn laid in a Herringbone paving pattern.

Perhaps a garden path is all that you have room for, Artro’s linear style block can make your path a feature of your garden.  Available in seven colours, you can choose from a range of contemporary and traditional shades to suit your home. 

If you are in need of some inspiration to help you get your project started, check out the Inspiration Gallery or get in touch with the team at a Tobermore Paving and Walling Centre or your local Tobermore stockist.
