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.
Always look for opportunities for your garden to make the most of the space you have. Minimal horizontal gardening space just means you will have to build up instead of out. Remember not to let your vertical garden get too tall so that you would not forget about tending to the plants on top. Build raised garden beds. Stack pottery/Add Tiers and Layers. Create a stacked herb or succulent garden to maximize planting space on the corner of a deck or patio. Grow vines and climbing plants on trellises, fences, or walls
