Maximizing a Small Garden’s Charm for Buyers

June 13, 2024


If you have even a tiny backyard garden, you can count on some buyers taking an interest in it – especially those who love to garden! So, it pays to make it look as enchanting as possible. Here are tips for doing just that:

  • Create a focal point. Every garden needs a star. A small water feature, a striking plant, or an elegant statue can draw eyes and underscore your garden’s potential.
  • Go vertical. Height tricks the eye into seeing more space. Use trellises or wall-mounted planters to grow upwards. This not only saves ground space but also adds an intriguing visual layer that can make even the tiniest of gardens feel lush.
  • Pops of colour. Bright flowers or striking foliage can make your garden memorable. However, don’t overcrowd; choose a few vibrant plants to sprinkle through the garden, offering a spectrum of hues.
  • Furnish smartly. A small bench or chair invites potential buyers to envision relaxing moments. But remember, proportion is paramount — avoid bulky items that can make the space feel cluttered.
  • Keep it tidy. Weeds and overgrown plants make a small garden look neglected. Create an impression of a well-cared-for backyard space.

The goal is to ensure a small garden adds yet another desirable feature to your home.
