10-Small-Space-Gardening-Ideas-To-Steal

Warm weather is here, and with it comes the urge to make your mark outdoors in the garden. This is easy enough if you call a sizable property in the 'burbs home, but the smaller your square footage, the harder it gets to flex your green thumb.

The good news? There are plenty of sunny days ahead because we’ve rounded up a slew of the smartest, cleverest, and down-right cutest tiny gardens out there.

1. A Pegboard Garden

This pegboard garden is perfect for apartment dwellers who don’t have any outdoor space, or available counter space.

It just goes on an empty wall and then you’ve got fresh herbs to grab and use while you cook.

2. A Stadium Planter

Think of this garden as bleacher seating for your plants. It’s a great way to showcase some of your prettiest perennials and herbs.

Because it’s a total DIY project (you will need some carpentry skills!), you can scale it large or small as your patio or balcony allows.

3. Hanging (Shoe) Garden

The 16-pocket organizer (in a breathable and drainable burlap material) is perfect for housing a variety of small herbs, succulents, and plants.

Even if you don’t have a fence, we’re guessing you have a door.

4. Cinder Block Garden

You can stack a cinderblock display against the back fence, filling the holes of cinderblocks with plants.

Use as many (or as few) as you want to build a custom creation to fit your space.

5. A DIY Indoor Herb Wall

We love the idea of dedicating a shelf for each type of herb or taking it one step further and categorizing them by taste profile (i.e., Italian herbs like parsley and basil on one shelf, and Mexican-style herbs on another).

By attaching gutters (found at any hardware store) to the side of her home, max out available space and create a statement-worthy living wall that’s as pretty as it is practical.

Of course, this works with whatever size wall you’ve got.

7. Hanging Basket Garden

It is a solution to keep a curious pet and handsy toddler out of the dirt, we think it’s also a great way to add interest to a porch, balcony, or even the corner of a room.

Just use a skinny bookshelf as a vertical garden.

Simply wind wire around the necks of each pot, then twist onto the fence to secure, creating a stylish display of greens.

You can recreate this look in your home or outside with any repurposed hutch. Just be sure to weather-proof the wood first if you’re keeping it outside.
