Small garden ideas – placement, planning & planting
A small garden can be daunting, but with the right garden design tips and tricks, it can become a tiny sanctuary for you to enjoy all through the warmer months. It doesn’t matter if you have a balcony garden or a small patch of patio, make it a space to be proud of.
Start by thinking about what you need from your garden and how you can plan it to fit those elements in. There are some excellent garden design apps out there that can help you with the basic structure. Chances are you’d like a pleasant place to sit on sunny days, so carve out some space and have a look around for some stylish garden furniture.
Then it’s time to think about planting. Perhaps you just have room for some plant pots for pretty seasonal plants and herbs around your table and chairs. You may have room for a pretty border that will make your city garden look more like a country garden. Or it may be that you want to learn how to grow vegetables, in which case see our garden editor’s guides to creating a kitchen garden and making a compost heap.
However small your garden is, we believe you can make something beautiful and functional there, so read on for more inspiration.
