So often people want to pack such a lot into small space garden design. I am also often asked to create a low maintenance space that includes a nice green lawn and unfortunately the two do not go well together. However if you want swathes of green and are up for something kooky this could be just the thing:

Ideas for small space garden design - the grass lounger

The Rug Lounger is a concept piece from Japanese design studio Fujimura that looks like a roll of grass that has been ripped up from a lawn for you to sit on. Perfect in a small space garden as the chair is integrated into a circular artificial lawn base, cleverly combining floor covering, chair and a table into one home decor piece. The only features that are not covered in grass are the chair’s metal armrests and the removable coffee table.

They would be ideal for roof terraces, balconies and small space gardens when a compact wash of green colour is required without the maintenance issues associated with real lawn. I can’t wait for these to go into production so it can go on my wish list!
