Banks or seats

An excellent idea to take advantage of the little space of your garden is to place a bench or seat, surrounded by flower beds or large pots with leafy plants. The idea is that the plants cover the walls or dividing fences of the garden, that way you will have the illusion of being in the middle of a forest or jungle.
