Do you have a small garden? But do you still want to get the most out of it? We at Woodpro understand that and would like to help you with some tips. We love the outdoors and think everyone should be able to enjoy it. Whether you have a large or small garden.
In a small garden, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to make optimal use of the space. Especially when you’re dealing with not just a smaller garden, but a smaller budget as well. Therefore, in this article, we give you five clever ways to transform a small garden into a true oasis. Whether it is a narrow garden or a very shallow garden, you can still make optimal use of the space without spending a fortune.
1. Use any walls
Do you have a garden that has a lot of walls in it? Then be smart about this. Allow plants to grow up against the walls or place pots and hanging plants against them. This way, you can basically create sort of a vertical garden. Of course, it is also possible to place one of our verandas or canopies by making clever use of an existing wall.
2. Pots, pots and more pots
When space is limited, pots can be very convenient. This also makes you a bit more flexible when it comes to types of plants and changing plants. It really is a way to create a green garden with little maintenance. Different pots with different plants immediately create a playful and friendly appearance. Do you have a Woodpro garden house in the garden? Then it is very easy to place the potted plants inside during the winter.
3. Sowing and harvesting
Perhaps you don’t want to spend too much on new plants. Then be smart and use seeds. See a beautiful plant in someone else’s garden? Then ask for some seeds or perhaps a cutting of the plant. This way you can easily create your own oasis in the garden with different plants. The great thing about this is that you can also start exchanging plants with friends and/or neighbours.
4. Recycle furniture
Do you have a garden house but no furniture for it? Of course, you don’t always need to use a brand new garden set in your garden house. How about recycling old indoor furniture? It’s easy to freshen up some old chairs and a table with a lick of paint. This also makes them a bit more resistant to weather influences. So take a good look around the house; which wooden chair, sofa or table could you move outside? Nothing to recycle? Then consider old pallets; these are great for making furniture.
5. More liveliness
Do you want to make sure there’s more to see in the small garden? Want to create more liveliness? Then consider birds and other animals. If you make the garden more friendly to birds and other animals, they will quickly find their way into your garden. Bird feeds, for example, are an affordable way to attract birds. They do not take up a lot of space and are easy to place or hang. Also consider a bird bath or butterfly box to create more liveliness in the garden.
