If you only have a small space to garden in, or maybe no space at all, you may think that you are stuck out. However there are a few ways that even apartment dwellers can still have a beautiful garden. Here are three ways to garden in small spaces:
1) The Wall Garden
Wall gardens are a great way to have a beautiful garden without using any ground space. Perfect for apartment, townhome and urban dwellers, a wall garden can be mounted on a fence or wall or just leaned against a wall. Pallet gardens are very popular with wall gardens. Find an old pallet that has been heat treated and back it with landscaping cloth. Fill it with soil and plants and hang it on the wall for a beautiful garden. You can also mount pots on the wall or fence and even gutters work great as planters alongside a narrow walkway. As you can see, there are many ways to create a wall garden.
2) The Container Garden
Speaking of hanging pots, why not create a container garden? A container can grow almost anything from veggies to fruit trees. You also have the benefit of being able to move your plants indoors in case of frost. Garden inside and out with a container garden!
3) Square Foot Gardening
How many plants can you pack into one square foot? Well, a lot more than you would think. The Square Foot Gardening method helps you learn how to use companion planting to get the most out of your garden. If following directions is not your cup of tea, simply packing in your plants closer together will let you get the most out of your small garden space and make even new gardens look great!
