Are you stuck for space in your back garden? Well, with a little creativity, you can utilize every inch of your outdoor space. To help you to do so, we are offering some helpful tips on how to make the most of a small garden.

A Maintenance Free Garden

While a little bit of greenery can provide color to your garden, a lawn can be a lot of work in a small area. If you have a child-free space, it might be beneficial to remove the lawn from your garden. Instead, add more plants into the space to breathe new life into your yard. If you have your heart set on a lawn, artificial turf can be a low-maintenance option in a small garden.


Grow Up the Wall


Those who are stuck for outdoor space should consider climbing plants, which can grow their way up a garden fence and can provide your yard with both interest and height. You can also add a burst of color to the outdoor area by hanging pouches and wall pots, which can be filled with flowers, fresh herbs, and vegetables.


Grow Your Own


Do you want to grow your own fruit and vegetables in a small space? Consider a vertical garden system from Mr. Stacky, which will allow you to grow more produce while using less space. The unique planters will allow you to grow anything, such as lettuce, tomatoes, strawberries, and herbs. They are therefore not only ideal for gardens, but they can be added onto an apartment balcony or courtyard.


Consider the Sun


Do you love to spend time in your garden? If you want to make the most of your time outdoors, you should consider where the sun will be positioned at different points throughout the day. For instance, this might determine where you will position your table and chairs to enjoy the sun’s rays or to find safety in the shade.


Use Window Boxes


Make the most of your windows by adding window boxes to grow beautiful flowers or herbs in your garden. It could, therefore, provide some much-needed color into your space, so you will want to spend more time outdoors to catch some of the sun’s rays, read a good book, enjoy a cup of coffee, or to enjoy a BBQ with your family.


The Right Sized Tree


Do you think your garden is too small for a tree? Think again. Many homeowners often believe the misconception that you need a big garden for a tree, but that is not the case. You might be pleased to learn that many trees are ideal for smaller outdoor areas, such as crab apples and acers.

Do not allow a small garden to stop you from enjoying the yard of your dreams. Simply follow the top tips above to make the most of every square foot of your outdoor area. You can guarantee you will want to spend every day in the great outdoors.
