The shape of a lawn if often the first port of call when thinking of laying down turf or grass, as this can define the overall structure and the shape of your garden. If you have a large garden, you can experiment with curved shapes, or even squared patches of lawn that are separated by flower beds or ornamental statues. If you have a smaller garden, it may be much harder to plan as you have limited space to play with, but it is never impossible to create a truly fantastic garden and lawn space. Adding mirrors to a garden can often give the appearance of a larger lawn, and can make it seem longer than it really is. If you do have a small garden, be sure to keep your grass and lawn well maintained as you are much more likely to notice dying or patchy grass in a smaller space.
