Hi all--

It seems that most books and websites define small gardens as 50x50' and smaller. Compared to this, my 10x10' space must be microscopic! Anyway, can anyone recommend websites or books that feature garden plans for such a microscopic site?

Many thanks!
Kelly

I have an old book by Roy Strong that has been a good resource. Our local library seems to have an array of books dealing with small gardens. Enjoy that small space. Diagonal paths (lines) will make it appear larger or play up its smallness and pack it with plants to create a jewelry box. The good news is... you can have a perfect little garden with less work and more time to enjoy it.
