The August issue of Gardens Illustrated offers a sneak peek into several small gardens, from a narrow seaside space in Kent to a sleek garden on several levels in west London. It’s the perfect opportunity to be inspired to transform your limited space. Kendra Wilson’s feature on Helen Elks-Smith’s beautiful walled garden design shows how she combines geometry and planting to create a garden that seamlessly flows around a modernist house in Hampshire.
Olympic Park and Barbican Centre planting expert Nigel Dunnett welcomes us into his own garden, which is a harmonious and joyful mix of naturalistic and biodiverse planting. And don’t miss a striking Scottish coastal garden planted by designer Colin McBeath.
Take a look inside.
