And then the access to the water is a crucial point for the maintenance of the garden, you must have access to water pipes which will be used for the good irrigation or the watering of your plants.

If you have enough space, a pergola will be ideal, as well as the design of an area for relaxation, with garden furniture, all in a studied setting of plant profusion. In the opposite case of a smaller field, it is of course useless to compartmentalize it in zones, but refer well on your plan the possible presence of trees, big emergent stones, or area of ​​soft ground to exploit at best this restricted space. You can design a harmoniously landscaped garden that is very aesthetic on a plot of 50 m², provided that it is not filled with trees and plants too imposing. In this case, prefer smaller shrubs that consume less space.

The floor covering must be treated with special care, tiles , floor tile, gravels , stones, wood: choose according to usage and common sense. If you have children, a lawn will be best for falls or play. The choice of containers for your plants is also important, the plastic planters are very practical and light to move, but their drainage is not as effective as the clay, and their resistance in time is limited. If you have little room, opt for climbing plants, fruit vine, virgin, passionflower, etc. By combining different species, you will create a feeling of depth, and free perspective.
