Not all of us have a large enough outdoor space to do all the things we have. However, there are great ways on how to work with a small yard. Here are 3 big ideas you can try if you have a small yard.
When land space is limited, try raising your garden to new heights, literally. Instead of populating your already compact space with potted plants, try using air plants which can also act as a green roof for your area. Hang it higher than your usual roof to prevent the space from feeling claustrophobic. With air plants freeing up space on the ground, you can now set up your patio to be your literal green room where you can sit down, chill, and enjoy nature in your special nook.
Before you think bonsai plants cost a lot to acquire, explore other miniature versions of plants that aren’t technically bonsai. Instead of the real bonsai, try creating a menagerie of succulents or combine them in a small enough container pot. This miniature setup gives you a pocket garden of small proportions which gives you more room for other outdoor ideas you have in mind. Not only that, succulents also require less
It’s easier to deal with a small space by thinking of it as a bento box and assigning a certain box for a purpose. It may or may not have solid borders but thinking of it in definite spaces helps you prioritize what you need and want for the space. Using this strategy, you can allocate enough space for a small garden plot, a fire pit with a seating area or even a small water feature to help with the ambiance.
