This is because of the space that this kind of properties can allow to be used in the surrounding areas of the buildings. However, minimalist garden ideas can also be applied in smaller in size properties – for example, in small houses, their inner courtyards, inside the building where there is enough space for a simple and elegant garden arrangement and so on.
