Garden / June 14, 2018 /
Small-space gardening can have a few challenges: The space may shaded by walls or adjacent structures. There is often little actual ground exposed—much of the space is hardscaped with patios or on a balcony for example. Sometimes there is no water source. Sometimes drainage is poor. And, in particular in multi-family dwellings, such as apartment homes and condos, there is often a lack of privacy in these outdoor spaces.
Smaller garden spaces have advantages also: They are less costly to plant. Maintenance takes much less time and, changing the style or spirit of the garden can be quick and easy. Seasonal garden change-outs can be a fun way to change these spaces. And, they are easy to enjoy and appreciate since everythings close by.
