Don’t let limited outdoor space prevent you from creating a spectacular green oasis to enjoy all summer long. From tasty fruits and veggies to flowering plants, trees and shrubs, container gardening is the trick to growing it all in less space than you may think. Here are a few small garden design ideas.
If you like roses and would enjoy having them in different colors in your small garden, there’s an alternative to the bushes that take up quite a lot of space. Planters filled with patio, mini or dwarf roses will provide colorful blooms all summer long. Just make sure they receive at least 5-6 hours a day of sunlight.
Small garden design ideas. Go vertically
The best thing you can do in a small garden is use vertical surfaces as much as you can. Choose a variety of climbing plants for fences and walls or decorate them with pots and flower boxes all the way up.
Small garden design ideas. Grow fruits
Plant a windowbox or hanging basket with summer’s favorite fruit. All you need is a sunny windowsill or another vertical spot in your garden to produce a season’s worth of sweet strawberries. They will also make a lovely addition to your small garden design.
Dwarf variety citrus trees are not only beautiful, given the right conditions, they can also be bountiful. Fill terra cotta pots with these flowering fruit trees to give your outdoor space a sunny vibe. Large pots for dwarf trees can be placed on wood board small decks on wheels so that you can move them around easily when you need to.
Small garden design ideas. Group pots
These galvanized containers in various sizes contain a veritable veggie patch of chives, peppers, leeks, strawberries and tomatoes. Grouping containers together like this is not only visually appealing, it also helps to create a more humid mini climate for the plants.
Small garden design ideas. A patch of grass
Add a patch of grass on the area you’ve saved using containers and vertical surfaces. You will enjoy it when having barbeques or other outdoor activities or just when walking around in your garden.
