Can you style Custom Fields in the Wordpress page editor?

Advanced Custom Fields just adds fields in a list to a Wordpress page editor. But is there a way to add a few styles to the page editor admin area?

For example, it would be nice if I could increase the margin between Field Groups, so it's more readable and organized for clients editing content—and doesn't just look like a long list.

I've actually never tried this but it seems you can hook your own css styles for the backend in functions.php

      //function to enqueue stylesheet
      function admin_css() {

          $admin_handle = 'admin_css';
          $admin_stylesheet = get_template_directory_uri() . '/css/admin.css';

          wp_enqueue_style( $admin_handle, $admin_stylesheet );

     // hook to add stylesheet
     add_action('admin_print_styles', 'admin_css', 11 );

then just add your styleheet in your them folder's css directory.
