narrow garden

Michael Malley asked 6 years ago

Townhouse in Greystones. Narrow south facing back garden 12ft x 30 ft. Don’t want this to look like a tunnel. Bring in curves and points of interest. Any recommendations?

Any narrow space can be divided to lend better proportions to the remainig halves. There would be two ‘rooms’ of roughly 12 by 15 feet, nice spaces for rooms in average house. See Small suburban garden No. 5 for instance.

Or simply suggest division as in No. 4,

The principle to focus on is to divide the narrow space so as to restore proportion to the remaining spaces.

Even the smallest space can be successfully divided.
