Garden Ideas

Getting Started

If you have limited outdoor space for gardens, take heart!  There are countless ways to maximize every inch!  Here is how we approach our small outdoor spaces!

create privacy

The first thing we did in our small yard was to create a privacy wall using evergreen trees.  We have neighbors on all sides, and it's the best money we've ever spent!

space planning

As with interior design, space planning is essential.  Knowing how you use your outdoor spaces and how much sun an area gets will help guide your decisions.

backyard layout

In our small backyard we added a patio and a shed.  Then we stopped to leave as much open grassy area as possible as to not clutter up the yard.

lawn care

Lawn care and maintenance are especially important in small spaces to keep it looking clean and uncluttered.

Small Yard Gardening

Though our yard is small, I managed to tuck creative flower beds all throughout the space.  Some are tucked into the perimeter of the yard, like this wheelbarrow planter!
