Scale upWhen designing a small space it’s tempting to try and fit lots of small plants into the space, but it can actually pay to do the opposite, and use just one or two large-scale specimens to create the feeling of a bigger space. It might sound counter-intuitive, but it’s a tried and tested interior design technique, and works just as well outdoors. In this small terrace there are only two plants, but thanks to their generous proportions it feels like a lush and green rooftop hideaway. Tall plants or big shrubs also draw the eye upwards; a useful design trick in a small space.

Love the idea of a recessed, built-in benched area.
