Garden design ideas for small gardens - trees that transmit light and provide shade.
Small gardens can be a great challenge. Here we offer you some ideas for garden design that face this challenge head on.

These gardens are perfect for trees like the Fukubana ornamental cherry, which reaches a height of 5 meters and loves shade. In the spring, the tree has pale pink flowers. The kernel also allows a crown of light to peep through. Its flowers appear in late spring. The tree can reach 5-6 meters in height.
