In winter time garden planning will give you some inspiration and will be useful, since when it is eventually summer, you will be ready to make your dream come true. First thing you have to do is to look for appropriate small front garden ideas and think what design your garden will have. If your garden is really small, every inch should be taken into account and be well-planned.
Flowers and walkways are always necessary things. In this case your imagination is not limited. But it is quite reasonable to plant shade-friendly flowers if your garden is small and the house is big. Then think where all garbage bins will be situated. If you are a car owner, have no garage, and need space for the vehicle in your front garden, this is a real challenge for you. A front garden does not look quite well when it is covered with concrete, but if it is still necessary, surround this space with flowers: this will be a certain kind of design.
There is no big need to make a lawn in a very small garden, unless the garden is situated in open space where a lot of sunshine is. But if you have much shade in your garden, but still want to have grass there, artificial lawn could be a great option for you: it requires no special maintenance and can be a convenient thing for your personal needs.
