"Small gardens have a great many advantages over large ones. Since there is only a limited space to fill, you can afford to spend more per unit of area than the owner of a large plot. Consequently, the space can be developed to the full, to create a really inspired result. And unlike a big garden, where large plants, mass plantings and large-scale features are needed to make an impression, in a small garden you can use lots of different plants and interesting architectural detail to create a more intimate effect."
