How To Garden in Small Spaces

Small spaces may present some gardening challenges but with a bit of planning and careful thought you can create a great garden in the tiniest of places. Be it backyard, balcony, or rooftop, the space can be transformed into a green oasis.

To get started ask yourself the following questions:
  1. How do you currently use the space? Is it a quiet getaway; a place for you children to play, or pets to roam, for entertaining?
  2. What do you want to grow, herbs, flowers, annuals, perennials, shrubs, fruit tees, vegetables?
  3. Thinking about a water feature?
  4. Do you use it as an outdoor office?
Once you have answered these questions, here are a few more to ponder.
  1. How much money are you willing to spend, on hardscaping, plants, watering system and d├ęcor, lights, garden art?
  2. How much time do you have to look after your garden?
  3. What specific challenges do you need to address, sunlight blocked by nearby buildings for example, ugly view?
  4. Measure the space and draw a plan. You do not need to be an artist but setting in down on paper will help you focus.
