What impact does vertical design have on a garden?

Adding vertical elements to a design

Vertical elements impact a garden in a variety of ways. The higher a fence or hedge, the smaller the enclosed space appears. Accordingly, the smaller the garden, the more the vertical elements predominate the area. In small yards, then, it is crucial to consider your vertical elements carefully. Using trellising or a nonsolid fence can give a small garden structure while still allowing light in. In a large yard, vertical elements can give a sense of intimacy and security by dividing the space into garden rooms.
