Small Space Gardening

By: Staff Published: June 28, 2023

Even if your gardening area is limited because you live in an apartment or a house with a small yard, you can still achieve a plant lover’s paradise.

How is it possible? Expert Chelsea Lipford Wolf offers several inspiring ideas that are as affordable as they are clever.

She recommends starting with the built-in opportunities in your space, such as window ledges and deck railings. Specially made window boxes and rail planter boxes allow you to take advantage of little-used areas.

Also, remember to look up. You may be able to use hanging baskets to create visual interest.

Get creative with walls and fences, too. Mount planters on lattice or repurpose old shutters or an old bookcase as artistic plant holders. You’ll save money and save items from going into the landfill, all while creating your small space garden!
