For an illusion of greater size, divide the garden into smaller spaces, or if it's impossible because it's just too small, provide several distinct focal points that trick the eye into seeing more space than is really there.

For example, instead of lining up pots in a line, arrange them in clusters, with one single eye-catching pot on the opposite side. Or create levels such as a smaller raised bed inside a small garden.
