8. Raise the bar Raised garden beds will naturally make any of your plants look taller. You can also use the change in levels to great effect by adding pots at a higher position than they would normally be.Using trees with a single clear stem along a boundary wall or fence will accentuate length and height. The top layer, especially if evergreen, will give the appearance of a hedge at a higher level.You could also grade your soil to create mounds, so plants sit at a higher point. This will bring drama into a previously flat landscape.

7. Screen timeTrees are excellent screening devices. If you’re after shade in summer but light in winter, opt for a deciduous cultivar. If you’re craving year-round shade and privacy, plant a tree with a dense canopy. And if you want to screen out your neighbours but let light in, choose a variety with sparser branches such as these olive trees with their elegant grey-green foliage.Tip: Keen to grow olives? Some varieties are purely ornamental so check with your local nursery for a cultivar that fruits well in your area.
