Small Gardens

Choosing the right trees for a small garden is incredibly important. Not only is the long term size and growth habit of grave importance, but the aesthetic impact, through all seasons, simply must be gotten right; when working with restricted space there is little margin for error on either count. Challenging, yes, but fortunately there are so many truly beautiful varieties of trees which are ideally suited to small gardens. Here are a few of our favourites:
