  1. Great pics, I love gardens 4 and 5, I like 4 because it’s really pretty and I do like plants/flowers, but I also like modern contemporary and garden 5 is really chic clean. I think its key with small spaces to not overload with accessories and planting. As shown above there are often a couple of key features like a garden furniture set or a water fountain or fire pit and then minimalist accessories. For low maintenance and big impact an ideal solution is to use furniture/accessories to add colour and serve a purpose, rather than trying to plant and add lots of flower beds too. Pots are fab as you can have just one or a while cluster and they can be moved around to suit. Horizontal wall planters are becoming trendy and these obviously add colour and style, without taking up space :O)
