Small Garden Ideas

Even if you have a small yard, you can still have an attractive garden. Space should not be a limiting factor when planning and designing your garden. Here are some small garden ideas that you will find extremely useful.

Before you start planting the plants around your small yard, spend some time planning. Figure out what you will be using the garden for. Some people use the garden to relax, exercise or entertain. Others want to beautify their surroundings and give an enhanced look to the home. Based on this, you can add all the required d├ęcor to the garden and accordingly plant the flowers and/or vegetables.

Make sure that the boundaries of your garden are well defined. If necessary add a fence. This will also give you privacy. If you are installing a fence, you can plant many climbing plants near it as the fence will work as a support. Alternatively, you can fix a trellis then plant some climbing plants. Of course, you will have to train the plant so that they cover the trellis and/or the fence and make the garden and the house look nice and neat.

Think about beautifying your garden with some furniture. If you are on a budget, then cast iron furniture is the bed. The furniture does not occupy too much space and you can choose the number of pieces based on the space that is available. You can have two chairs and a table to relax in the evenings or spend some time reading a book on warm summer’s day.

Another idea for a small garden is beautifying the area with some yard art. You can have a small pond or even have a small fountain at the center of garden. Around this you can plant a few flowers. Alternatively, you can have some sculptures, pots or large vases. In the pots and vases, you can grow some flowers. However, make sure that you do not add too many things or it will make your garden look cluttered.

Finally, just having luscious green grass growing with a border of single-colored flowers can make a small garden look unique and stylish. In the four corners, you can put some outdoor lighting that will illuminate the area and give an illusion of the garden being bigger than what it is in the evenings.
