Take this typical Thai back yard; although limited in size, it still has lots of scope for many varying regions, adding up to what can be a very interesting and unique gardenscape.
Although space at either side of the house is limited, these areas are fulfilling potential, on the West side, you have a relaxing, mixed stonework patio, heavily shaded, and with room for seating and private dining.
This area also benefits from the sound of the running water from the nearby water feature.
The East side of the building is a simple rustic walkway (reclaimed wood beams with random stone), with overhanging pergola, and some space for planting or other practical use.
The pathway leads to a seated region, again this can be shaded with either a man-made structure like a pergola, or converted into a gazebo or small sala if desired.
The rest of the lawn is left largely untouched, maybe a play area for children, or just a neatly trimmed lawn.
Heavy planting at (4) helps aid privacy to the East side of the garden.
