It’s no secret that gardens are getting smaller and, as such, many now feel that it’s not always worth putting the effort in. Here at Landscape Machine, our experience with South Woodford Soft Landscaping services has taught us just how far some careful and considered design can go towards making the most of the space you have.

So let’s take a look at three ways that you can use soft landscaping to transform your garden.

1. Wildflowers

In many ways, designing a garden is all about imposing order on nature. How much you choose to do this is up to you. Some gardens lean into a natural aesthetic with soft forms and very few hard lines, while others lean into a more ‘designed’ look.

Wildflowers can be an excellent way to compromise between these two styles. Small beds of wildflowers can feel very naturalistic but can also be used to define the shape of your garden by maintaining the edges of these flowerbeds as clean, sharp lines.

2. Well-Placed Trees

Trees are an excellent addition to any garden so long as you have the space, however, when you’re growing those little saplings, it’s very important to consider where you’re putting them. The roots can cause problems, so don’t place them too close to any structures, but even more important is lighting.

If you’re going to include trees in your garden, make sure that they don’t block the natural light getting in. Ideally, what you want is for the trees to create a backdrop against which the afternoon/evening light can fall, perhaps creating a small patch of shade to sit in.

3. A Herb Garden

When considering the smell of their garden, people often think about flowers but you should never overlook the possibilities of a good herb garden. Not only are herb gardens relatively easy to maintain and pleasant to look at, but they can also contribute many enjoyable scents and smells.
Furthermore, freshly grown herbs are delicious for home-cooked meals so it’s a win-win all around.
