Hi all, we're still in the early stages of planning our build but I'm stressing a LOT over the tiny yard space we'll be left with once our family home is plonked on the block. We'll effectively have a "side yard" rather than a backyard.
I'd love to hear from other small space gardeners and what they've done to make the most of a small awkward yard. We'll have 5m x 25m down one side of the house (which living areas, alfresco and kitchen look out on to) and a 3m x 14m stretch across the back.
At the very least all I want is some grass and a neat planting of hedges or such at the fence line. Is it doable or will it be more compact and odd looking rather than green and serene?
Thanks for your help and please do share some pics if you have similar sized spaces!

Shazaw they are awesome ideas, thank you! We're in South Australia and yes, the side with the most yard space is facing north. Love the stepping paver blocks down the side too - so nice and neat!

Do you need grass, like for a dog or kids? If not that size space will look much bigger and more interesting if you plan a garden around a path with plantings at different heights and spaces to fit here and there.

Hi guys. I would love some advice. I have a very tiny garden bed in my backyard ( approx 60cm from the neighbour fence ) and I would love to create a sort of tropical look…
