Small Garden Ideas
A small garden space doesn't mean you can't have the garden you want. Here are some favorite ideas from Better Homes and Gardens for small garden ideas, including small patio garden ideas, to help you maximize your space!
Create an Outdoor Room
Turn a tiny patio into a gorgeous outdoor room by adding a freestanding pergola. Here, a small wooden pergola was constructed over a gravel patio and enhanced with a teakseating arrangement. The pergola creates a sense of enclosure and makes the patio seem a lot larger then it actually is
Even a small garden can become a haven for birds and butterflies when you choose flowers they prefer. For example, this square bed is packed with bird and butterfly favorites, such as black-eyed Susan and phlox. A bird feeder and birdhouse add to the garden's wildlife-friendly features.
Rely on Pots
Enjoy your own corner of paradise by packing your small garden with pots and planters overflowing with flowers and fragrant herbs. In this luxurious backyard, pots of geranium (scented and standard) and marguerite daisy provide the bulk of color surrounding a welcoming teak bench. A large terra-cotta bowl acts as a reflecting pool and birdbath.For these and more tips, check out the full list of ideas here.
