Their pleasant smell, beautiful colors, and shape are known to reduce stress. They are also an excellent way to engage kids, thanks to their colors, and make them appreciate nature.

6. A small birdhouse to welcome the birds:

Birds are going to visit your garden anyway, so why not embrace them. Their soothing sound is a melody for ears. You can get an elegant birdhouse and use it as a centerpiece of your small garden.    If you have limited space, you can opt for a wall hanging variety. It will be smaller in size but be aesthetically pleasing. Buy bird feed and fill it up daily to further attract the birds, and if you have kids, ask for their help. It will become an excellent way to spend time with them and teach them about birds.

With proper landscape design, you can make even a small patio outstanding. Try to mix things up by trying different color pots, flowers, and plants. Make use of all the space available to you and make use of golden ratio or proportions when deciding where to place things in the garden. If you are not creative enough, you can always hire a professional landscape designer.  They will design your garden according to your needs and space and obviously lower your burden.
