4 ways to make the most of your small garden


Posted 22nd March

Now that spring is upon us, we're all looking forward to welcoming in the warmer weather, and with it comes the chance to spend some glorious time in our gardens.

While we're not all fortunate enough to have a big outdoor space, there's no need to despair - in fact, less can sometimes be more.

Whether you're looking to create a kid-friendly space or want to make the most of the little outdoor space you do have, these clever ideas from Pinterest will help you to make the most of your outdoor space, regardless of the size.

1. Growing up

The Pinterest 100 has revealed vertical gardens are becoming more popular, with searches increasing by 287 per cent. It doesn't matter whether you're after a unique design or want somewhere practical to grow vegetables - going upwards is a great way to save space, and makes your outdoor area seem taller and bigger.

2. Water works

Adding a water feature is a great way to make your space feel bigger - why not consider a fountain? Listening to the sound of falling water can be an idyllic and relaxing way to end a long day.

3. Colour in

Adding a touch of colour is a great way to make up for a lack of floor space. Using bright blocks of colour will inject your garden with vibrancy, and in the process, breathes in new energy.

4. Plant box

Would you like to try growing your own herbs but lack the space? Well, you can get around this by using a hanging fixed planter which goes underneath the window sill. It helps you save space and ensures you can grow both plants and herbs.
