Do you already know the latest trends in gardening and landscaping? Would you like your patio to appear to have some more space but do not know how to get it? Today we will show you fifty examples of landscaping designs for small gardens and backyards with a lot of charm that you can not miss.
Small gardens with lots of charm
We will see that the most current styles opt for a strict order for all areas and functions of the garden so that the most modern designs really seek to separate the outdoor spaces in different parts. This can be achieved for example by marking the boundaries between the plant areas with edges and barriers .

In the image above we see an example of the well separated garden areas that form a very pleasant landscape. Plants have their own place to grow that is independent of the part destined for dinning room although it is possible to access them thanks to the practical stone path that crosses it.

Small gardens can also count on luxury designs and landscape gardening with a lot of style, as we can see in the examples. The oriental culture of Zen gardens is very beneficial and useful for outdoor spaces of less volume since what you are looking for is precisely to expand the available space.
Small garden with minimalist design
A trick to enlarge small gardens and make the most of your space in a very efficient way is to build or level off. These can be made of teak wood like the one we see on the black platform of the photograph, and in this case it serves to isolate obviously the entire part destined to the dining room.

Next, a landscape design model that has tried to include all the elements using just space. Once again, there are teak wooden platforms to mark the different areas, but it also draws our attention to the original way in which weeds have been planted on the edges of the pool to give it a more natural look.
Patio with minimalist decoration
Let's see now a patio more functional and intended essentially for everyday use and leisure time outdoors. It is a very minimalist design in which we will see mostly straight and smooth shapes. However, plants have their place in this futuristic landscape to provide the natural touch.
Garden with teak wood pergola
A very important and quite current element would be the wooden pergola, and in small gardens this will also take place as we will see. We can appreciate in the image that a very beautiful aspect has been achieved by combining different styles, but always defining each of the parts for its specific function.

We can also create the delimitations simply as an ornamental element in small gardens, as is the case with the decorative strips of stones, pebbles or gravel in several of the models that we show them. Its function is basically to embellish and reassure the entire landscape by mixing materials and textures.
Design of modern gardens with wooden platforms
For this reason we will also think of water as a necessary element in the landscape vision of our garden or outdoor patio. It is very fashionable to place koi ponds and natural pools in outdoor spaces as it completes the natural image that we are looking for. The structures and designs of these ponds also serve very modern and minimalist models that seek to satisfy the needs of all.

As gardeners adapt to the climate, water-saving varieties of flowers are increasingly available. Look for native and drought-resistant plants. For example, select a variety of lilacs adapted to your specific area.
Level terrace with flower beds and plants
There is a gardening trend that we all love: incorporating natural elements such as rocks, boulders, and covered hedges for more structures. Too much technology has made young people go outdoors to disconnect from the city and connect with nature.
Garden with zen style design
Instead of placing small things, fill your yard with an impressive "statement" of plants to serve as the focal point of your garden. Expert gardeners have introduced varieties of boxwood, compact hydrangeas, pomegranates, berries and more that make great "wonders in a single container" and require less maintenance.

Large shrubs, hydrangea and clematis hedges suggest in luxury, but if you do not have space, you can get more compact versions of these plants to achieve the same aesthetics. Look for mini roses, hydrangeas of smaller scale and more manageable clematis.
