No matter the size, having a home garden with little plants, incredible flowers and a place to sit and relax alone or socialize with family and friends at brunch, lunch or even dinner, it makes all the difference in a house! The garden is a space to relax, admire the view of the plants, feel the grass and breathe better and, even if it is small, there are several tips and possibilities to set up a quiet and comfortable place to renew the air of your home.
In today's post, we will give tips for you to make your little garden happen!
Small garden? Open space in the center!
A simple hint for any small space is: hold large objects close to the walls and leave the center of the environment free for people to circulate, air and light. This also works in the garden! The side and corner beds near the walls and walls are amazing, as they make the landscape more lively, the benches and tables can also be thought of to be in the corners, with a special lighting so they do not occupy darker places.
Small maple in any location
It is becoming increasingly popular for people to grow some species of spices and foliage at home for their own consumption in vases, without the need for a piece of land on the ground. Many species can even be grown indoors with only a few hours of direct sunshine, but the ideal setting for plants is an open environment for them to get sunshine at will and grow more and more.
Our tip is: invest in a few changes of herbs and pot seasonings to start growing in a corner of your garden, even if you do not have much experience with gardening. It will surely transform your environment and your meals!
Enjoy the walls!
The idea of going for a vertical decoration does not only apply to small gardens, but in most of the internal rooms of the house too! The wall decor creates incredible decor and still saves usable floor space. In the case of gardens, you have several options such as installing a vertical garden and bringing a bright green to your wall with lots of foliage and textures, or even growing a climbing vine plant or a flowerbed on the floor, leaving it climb up and cover your wall.
Different plants for specific locations
For a garden with complete green area, a landscaping job is critical. Not only in the ordering and composition of plant species, but also to understand how the environment can provide comfort for each type of seedlings. It is important to observe in every corner chosen to turn a flowerbed or potty's corner as and when the sun comes down and as the wind passes. For example, an open corner where there is a lot of wind, plants with harder leaves live well, but those with more delicate leaves can be felled easily, so in these corners bet on the gardenias and azaleas. In an area that beats a lot of sun, think of the aromatic herbs (another hint for your vegetable!) Such as rosemary, basil, bay leaf, chives, oregano, parsley and others.
Think of different floor coverings to stimulate feel and new sensations
As the garden is thought to be an environment to release the bad energies of everyday life and relax, it is interesting to invest in different textures and sensations to experience in that place. The grass is certainly the right one, even if you have minimal space to install it. But there are other alternatives, such as artificial grass, made with synthetic fiber, or even hefty stones, common in gardening and landscaping. For those who like a better structured climate, the wooden deck never goes out of style and can adapt to any dimension you have available.
Benches, armchairs and even an outdoor dining table
Despite the idea that it is impossible to create a collective environment in a small garden, it is sometimes only a matter of perspective. You may think of a small circular table with two chairs or even a planned bench that runs along the wall, simple ideas that can rather make the environment the ideal place to gather friends and family on the weekend.
For those who want a more relaxing environment, it is worth investing in one or two loungers or reclining chairs for the outdoor areas.
