Gardening in Small Spaces for New Jersey Landscapes

Filed under: Landscape Design — admin @ 6:49 am

Most owners of small gardens view the space within their boundaries as fixed and limited…and are they wrong! Our landscape architects and garden designers at Live Oak Landscape carefully choose and place masses of plants, ornaments and architectural features such as pergolas, fences, steps and walls so that they manipulate the space within the garden to give a sense of intimate enclosure or to visually expand it beyond the edges of your property.  Often it is desirable to do both in the same design.

We create a feeling of enclosure through a uniform design.  In general, the constructed framework of the garden should be simple.  Our use of  edging for paths and planting beds tie the composition together and defines separate areas in the garden.

To tie the garden design to the house, we construct features that will provide privacy as well as a sense of space.
