Large container gardens make a big impact but can also take up too much space. By using smaller containers, that are also portable, you can make a statement wherever you need color!
Use vertical space! By using plant stands, lattices, and even fences to train plants to grow vertically, you can create beautiful focal points without taking up a lot of ground.
Patio furniture can easily eat up all the space on a deck or porch. Keeping outdoor accessories on the small side helps to make the most of your space. Don't be afraid of color or using one large piece of furniture, like a lovely table for an eating area or a settee and ottoman to lounge in the sun!
While a full-grown spruce can get more than 50 feet tall and 30 feet wide, columnar varieties such as the one pictured above get no more than 6 feet across. Look for these narrow types to save space. There are many varieties of trees and shrubs that grow tall and narrow to accommodate small areas.
Play with color! By painting doors, shutters or even patio furniture in bright and cheerful colors, you can allow for beautiful focal points even on winter days when nothing is in bloom.
Landscaping and lush foliage doesn't have to be relegated to the large-scale gardener. Using a few smart tips can help create a lovely landscape for your home!
