Also by Szczepaniak, this small porch on the side of a garage is one of my favorite projects in the book. Softly lit at night, it’s a little hideaway on a small lot in the center of Ottawa, Canada’s capital.“This garden uses every square inch to wonderful effect,” notes Messervy. “The designer integrated the garage into the garden by using an attached arbor and seating area, which reduces its size so that it feels like a charming garden structure.” Lush plantings, ornamental grasses and ground covers blanket the area.

10. Dreamy landscape lighting. Subtle, glowing landscape lighting is the icing on the cake for making a secret garden feel like a magical retreat. Select lights that are small and subdued, rather than bright flood lights — we’re going for the look of fairy lights and not a football stadium, after all. Apart from providing ambience, lights can be practical too — extending the time you can enjoy being out of doors, and illuminating pathways and stairs for safety.Tell us: Have you created a secret garden of your own?

3. Lay a dreamy walkway. Make the route to the seating nook feel like a magical journey by laying stepping stones surrounded by soft ground covers and planting lush foliage plants and fragrant blooms close by — so you might catch a hint on your walk. Depending on what time of day you plan on using the space, subtle outdoor lighting can add the final romantic touch to evening destinations.
