Screen strategicallyBelieve it or not, this leafy oasis started life as a gloomy, empty basement overlooked by a car park – until, that is, designer Roberto Silva of Silva Landscapes worked his magic and created this inviting gem of a secluded small garden.

So her brief to Roberto was to create a low-maintenance but leafy, evergreen garden in her tiny basement plot.

Proliferate with potsIf your garden is small or you don’t have one at all, make whatever you do have as beautiful as possible. Line patios, outdoor windowsills, corners and steps with pots of evergreens, flowering plants and palms. Introduce as much greenery and shrubbery as you can muster and the lack of flowerbeds won’t be so obvious. Consider varieties that are fragrant, and grow fruits and herbs in pots, too.Discover container gardens that prove you don’t need flowerbeds
