Organizing a garden in a small yard. With a little imagination and these tips, you can utilize the space you have and grow more than you ever imagined!
People who live in apartments, townhouses, and condos generally have little to no yard space. Even people who buy houses in the larger cities can end up with a very small or even tiny yard area to work with. They want to garden in a small yard but have a hard time seeing how it can be done. They generally focus on all the reasons they can’t garden.
You can’t be blamed; most of us think of a large area, usually acres when we think of a garden. That is the normal way gardens are portrayed. When you have a tiny patch of grass that is 10 feet by 10 feet and concrete around it, the idea of being able to grow anything worth the effort tends to be lost in the belief that since you don’t have enough space it’s not possible.
That is simply not true! With a little imagination and some tips you may not have thought of, you can utilize the space you have and grow more than you ever imagined! Consider how much room you have to use when you plant a vertical garden, for example. A 2-foot by 2-foot footprint can be 6 feet tall! If you tier the height, you have enough space to grow all the herbs and spices you would use for a whole year. Imagine what else you could grow!
