Gardening enthusiasts does not require a huge space to keep them going. A small patch of space in your backyard can be converted to a beautiful garden. First things first. Before any gardening activity is undertaken, you have to evaluate the space as to what type of garden you wish to have. It is very crucial since you need to create a landscape that you can enjoy for years. Gardens come in varying shapes and sizes so you have to know the purpose of the garden, what you want your garden to emphasize and the amount of maintenance that you prefer.
Gardening enthusiasts know for a fact that gardens are “functional works of art.” You, being the creator designer and gardener, will have your own options to create a garden in any way you want. You can opt to have a rose garden, butterfly garden, hummingbird gardens or vegetable gardens, organic and otherwise. Additions are optional like fountains or water features. Deciding on the function can help you create a perfect environment that you are sure to enjoy.
While gardening small spaces will not take too much of your time, designing them can be quite tricky. Careful thought and planning should be done to maximize the little space that you have. You can choose to have a one-color garden to create a sense of unity. Add plants with differing heights to create dimensions. Rocks will help you emphasize the plants. You can use them as decorative accents and they can be very cheap.
Gardening aficionados advises that before buying plants, identify first what plants will thrive in the soil and light conditions in your small patch of space.
