Garden / June 11, 2018 /
A small space should not limit your garden or your imagination—hanging baskets, containers, window boxes, espaliered fruit trees. They are all great ways to made a big gardening impact – even on the most limited high rise balcony! Here are some considerations and expert techniques when planning your small garden. Small spaces for gardening may include apartments, town homes, condos, as well as rental homes, retirement homes, and community garden plots. However, a small garden space may also be a small space within a larger garden.
Planning is key to a successful small garden. Measure your space and consider how much room you have for your garden plants and accessories. Pay attention to the lighting where you will be planting. And, consider how you would like to use your garden. Do you plan on entertaining friends and throwing parties? Or, will this space mainly be an intimate space for you to read and enjoy coffee? If you will be hosing parties in your small garden, then you will need to plant around the border and leave plenty of room for walkways. If this space is mainly for your enjoyment, then design your garden with comfy spots to sit and read a good book.
