When it comes to creating a sleek and stylish outdoor space, it is imperative that you follow the correct landscaping principles. If you don't know where to begin, don't worry, as we will cover the main ones for you below.


  • Plant big to small - The first tip is to plant big to small. This means starting off with the trees, and then the shrubs, after this, add the perennials, and finally, the ground cover comes into play.

  • Get proportions right by using the golden rectangle - The Golden Ratio is a proportion ratio that has been observed in many great structures, including the Great Pyramids of Giza. This has been adapted to provide us with the Golden Rectangle, which is a sum that you can use to ensure that you get the proportions right in your garden.

  • Obey the rule of significant enclosure - On a final note, it is imperative to follow the law of significant enclosure. This rule states that we feel enclosed when a space's vertical edge is a minimum of one-third of the length of the horizontal space that we are in. It is imperative to apply this rule to your garden space to ensure it feels spacious.
