10 Small Flower Garden Landscaping Ideas
As spring slowly begins to unfold before our eyes, we thought to do a world tour through the gardens to inspire you in arranging these vibrant corners of nature. We will stop today and take a look at some small flower garden landscaping ideas, so that, whatever space you may have available, to fully enjoy the authentic beauty of nature.
Even a small garden can become a haven for birds and butterflies when you choose flowers they prefer. For example, this square bed is packed with bird and butterfly favorites, such as black-eyed Susan and phlox. A bird feeder and birdhouse add to the garden’s wildlife-friendly features and will help diversify the landscape.
Give the small garden a whole new look by installing a mowing strip at the border’s edge. This mowing strip was specially designed to keep weeds at bay and act as a low-maintenance garden path. It also provides easy, mud-free access to the garden for wheelbarrows, mowers, and other equipment.
Some flower beds, bordered by shrubs and an old fence, are integral part of a relaxing countryside decor. Accessories such as a garden fountain or pots hanging on the fence are pluses that round out this authentic setting.
Even if you don’t have a garden in the classic sense of the word, this does not mean that you cannot arrange a corner of greenery wherever space permits. In the image below, we have an inner courtyard which took over the role of the garden, a space that exudes complete tranquility, ideal for relaxing moments.
Compensate for lack of space by packing your small garden with pots and planters overflowing with flowers and fragrant herbs. They have the same effect, unfolding before the eyes like small focal points that give the place a different color layout.
Expand vertically if the horizontal space is not too generous. Let plants and flowers climb walls, pergolas or arches to enjoy an exuberant image, full of colors and natural silhouettes, creating a small paradise two steps away from home.
Here are some other small flower garden landscaping ideas that will turn the small areas into ones bursting with vitality.
