Having a small garden does not have to be a bad thing, even for outdoor lovers, as there are plenty of ways to make the most of your outside space, no matter how limited it may be.

Here are some tips how:


Create a living wall 

The trick to getting as much out of a small garden as possible is to utilise all the space you have available. Living walls have grown in popularity over the last few years, as more people adopt these vertical gardens to give their yard more greenery and colour.

As the plants are rooted into the structure of the wall, you can grow a variety of shrubs, flowers, fruits, vegetables and herbs without taking up any floor space.


– Add shelves 

Just like you would add shelves to your home to provide more storage space, why not do the same with your garden? Fix these to brick walls for a sturdier option and cover with colourful plant pots and candles.

You could even have some outside your kitchen window full of fresh herbs, so all you have to do when you want to add some to your cooking is to open your window and reach out!


– Use trees to disguise other buildings

The problem about a small garden is that it means you are overlooked by other buildings. To create the feeling of isolation and privacy, it might be a good idea to plant a tree.

While this could take up valuable space, the bold feature will add a focal point to your garden, as well as help to hide other houses from your view.
