One of the exciting things about owning a home is making the most of the space that you have. There are so many great ways you can customize your home so that it fits your lifestyle perfectly. When you have a smaller home, you do sometimes need to get creative with the way you use your space, but that’s not to say you can’t create your dream garden even if you only have a small area to play with.
You shouldn’t let the fact that you have a small yard stop you from fully enjoying the space you have. Here are a few simple ways to make the most of a small garden and how you can get creative.
You may not have a lot of floor space to play with, but that doesn’t mean you can’t grow upwards. Vegetables that vine, such as beans, tomatoes and squash, are great as they grow up rather than outwards so you can still enjoy the rest of your space.
Once trick to making your space look bigger is to play with different heights. Consider raising the plant beds, or even creating a raised platform with chairs or sun loungers. You could also create an ivy wall on the side of the platform to add another dimension.
Create separate areas
Your space will feel bigger if you have different areas. If you have an open space, add a patio or decking area that you can dine on, another area for planting vegetables, and perhaps a chill out area with a bench or a small pond. Separate areas will always create the illusion of space.
Add life and sounds
Another way to make the most of a small garden is to add life and sounds. A small waterfall will add a beautiful sound of splashing water and really add to the ambiance of your garden.Dress your garden with plants, small trees, bird feeders, and other features that will add life to the space.
Hanging baskets are a great addition to small gardens. You can hang them from the house or from trellis structures and they’ll add some nice greenery to your yard without taking up any floor space.
