To get the most out of a small garden, one of the best ideas is planting in pots. Besides being a decorative factor, will make the plant does not grow too much and you can move it easily.

An excellent idea to take advantage of the little space of your garden is to place a bench or seat, surrounded by flowerbeds or large pots with leafy plants. The idea is that the plants cover the dividing walls or fences of the garden, that way you will have the illusion of being in the middle of a forest or jungle.
By hiding the divisions and borders, the optical illusion of amplitude is created.
The curves or diagonals give the illusion of a larger space. This is one of the tricks most used by garden designers. By breaking the geometry and right angles, the notion of the dimension of space is lost a bit. Take advantage of this idea, as in the images below.
