How to make beautiful and functional gardens in small places

An additional square meter or two is more than enough space for one of these gardens. Even with less space it may be possible to create a beautiful and functional garden. Review the following ideas and think about your next project in the garden of your dreams .

Beautiful herb gardens

What to Plant: A gallon-size rosemary plant and a quart-size sage plant form the foundation of this herb garden. Oregano, thyme, parsley, and basil add visual contrast.

Other options are a themed garden, such as one planted with lemon thyme, lemon basil, lemongrass, and lemon balm.

Herbs are relatively self-sufficient, so they are watered about once a week, more often during dry spells and less during rainy spells. Make sure to gently direct the water toward the base of the plants, which prevents runoff and allows moisture to seep into the roots.

A beautiful vegetable garden

A tomato and a cucumber share a 1.50 × 1.50 m2 square plot with three types of peppers (yellow, orange and red), four varieties of red and green lettuce and a blooming pumpkin.

If your best planting spot gets just four hours of direct sunlight, forget tomatoes and try leafy greens like spinach, lettuce, and chard. Root vegetables, such as beets, carrots, and radishes, also require less light.

You can even plant them in a compost heap at planting time for maximum yield. Keep in mind that as the plants produce more foliage and begin to bear fruit, they require more water.

A cut garden to grow the cutest flowers

Tall, showy dahlias and daisies make lovely arrangements. A dwarf cosmos and a sage can complete a cute flower mix.

The planting combinations are almost endless. Consider a color family scheme, such as pink or purple. Reliable, productive, and long-lasting blooming plants include dragons, Chinese asters, lisianthus, mallow, and larkspur.

How to maintain them? After planting, put a 2-inch layer of bark mulch to suppress weeds and reduce evaporation of soil moisture. Flowers that are not cut for bouquets should be cut off when they go out.
