Want to want to create an oasis but do not have a yard? Beautiful flower garden ideas can even be incorporated in tiny townhome patios to transform them into unique outdoor living areas.  Remember tips for decorating small indoor rooms and incorporate them into your modern garden layouts.  Think vertical – tall climbing ivy or foliage options on enclosing walls will draw the eye up to the sky rather than highlighting the limited floor space while providing a look of lush greenery. Large garden pots are great options for people working in small or narrow deck and patio areas because they are versatile and can be used in creative ways.  Line small pots in a row filled with flowers to mimic lawn edging or group pots of various sizes and heights in clusters to draw the eye upwards to again highlight the height of the space rather than enclosing walls.  From to ways to incorporate a vegetable patch on a townhome patio to small cottage garden designs that can be incorporated in any style home, DIY Home Design Ideas can help you make the most out of a tiny outdoor space.

The best plants for small gardens are those that are self-contained and not prone to overgrowth as well as those that can be shaped to fit your desired space.  For example, tall and narrow topiaries are a wonderful option for smaller areas because you have the ability to adjust their size and design to fit comfortably in your space.  As you know beautiful garden photos often feature large focal points like yard art pieces or water features – topiaries can bring the same visual interest and elegant feel of a grand concrete sculpture or large fountain while still fitting within the scale of your limited space. With this in mind, remember that when planning decorative features for your small garden chose those with multiple uses.

Often homeowners assume they cannot create a home vegetable garden in their small outdoor space. Gardening in a small space may be challenging but there are many options that will allow you to have fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs no matter the size of your backyard.  Planting a small vegetable garden simply requires more careful planning than a larger space.  The best vegetables for a small garden are compact varieties that do not require extensive area for roots such as tomatoes, eggplants and leafy greens. Popular new products of 2017 even include large pots and containers specially designed to grow several varieties of produce in the same confined area on a deck or patio.  Not only can these garden containers grow fresh produce to serve your family but they can even be incorporated as a cool decoration or pop of color.   “Living fences” are another of our favorite contemporary garden fence because they are formed from vining crops like cucumbers and beans that can grow up poles to create a unique natural fence.
