Not everyone is lucky enough to have a huge space for their gardening. You might have some outdoor space, but it’s not exactly the sprawling piece of land you would like it to be. Still, you can make use of what you’ve got and do plenty of things with it. You just need to find ways to use the space you have as smartly as possible so that none of it goes to waste.
Before you start work on your garden, you can carefully plan how you’re going to use every square inch. Try out the following techniques to save space in your garden.
Extend from Your Home
Some people might want to have a greenhouse in their garden, but they can take up a lot of space. One way to save space is to use an existing wall of your home. Instead of a full greenhouse, the Eden Broadway lean to range might be more suitable for you. Save space by having it flush up against your home or another wall, and use it for whatever you want. They can be useful for storage, growing plants, or just for sitting inside if you want to enjoy the sunshine. Another way to use the walls of your home is to hang a trellis or planter from one of them, as well as hanging baskets.
Use Vertical Space
Growing your garden vertically, instead of spreading everything out horizontally, can help you save a lot of space. It’s a useful technique to use inside, and it’s excellent to use outdoors too. You can use vertical planters with pots or even little pockets you can fill with plants. If you want to do some indoor gardening, these planters are great for that too. Another way to use vertical space is to grow plants up a fence if you have one. Pick a plant that will climb, perhaps.
Create a Tiered Garden
A tiered garden is a useful way of trying to fit as much into a space as possible. They can come in lots of different shapes and sizes. Your tiered garden could be a series of different levels across your garden or perhaps a series of planters along some steps. It could even just be a few pots stacked on top of each other. Use your imagination to come up with a few ways to create a tiered garden.
Keep Your Furniture Small
Having some garden furniture can help to liven things up a bit. You can enjoy your garden even when you’re not gardening. However, it can easily take up a lot of space and leave little room for other things. If you want to have some furniture, try to keep it small. Although you might like a sofa or dining table, a small bistro table and a couple of chairs can look sweet and still be useful.
Save space in your garden, and you’ll have more of it to enjoy. There are plenty of smart ways to make the most of all the space you have available.
