Keep your colour palette simpleWhen space is tight, a restricted colour and planting palette will really come into its own, creating drama and impact. The repetition of just two types of plant in neat raised planters, as seen here, arguably creates much more impact than a bigger mix of plants would provide. Combined with a luxurious corner sofa, comfy armchair and a parasol for sunny days, this terrace has luxury tied up. See 8 winning patio ideas to transform your garden
