Consider the run of your fencing, horizontal or vertical, because each brings a very different feeling to the space. Vertical fencing pulls the eye upward and can reduce perceived scale, making people feel smaller. Horizontal fencing creates a secure feeling of enclosure, rather like a hug. It also keeps the eye moving around the space, discovering new things.

11. A mini-destination in an urban yard. Making the most of space is important in an urban garden. Landscape designer John Davies also inspired a journey with a secondary destination in this London backyard, something often reserved for larger gardens. Floating pavers of basalt stone traverse a water feature back to a raised gravel terrace. “This was designed as a destination — a place where you might sit with a glass of wine,” Davies says. A multistemmed Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) in the background, a burkwood osmanthus (Osmanthus x burkwoodii) in the foreground and dramatic lighting offer sculptural intrigue. Domed plant sculptures surround the outdoor area, along with an iroko wood fence.
