Okay, let's confess. Having a house with a small garden is everyone's dream. After all, a small backyard can come in handy when you are entertaining guests or simply feel like soaking in some Vitamin D and getting fresh air. But a small green space with floral additions also improves emotional and mental well-being. A cute little backyard has a lot more potential than we realise. If you have been struggling with decorating ideas for small gardens, then you have landed at the right spot. We bring you a few tips to decorate your small garden, and we guarantee you that it will bring your yard back to life.
The plan should be to make the most of your small gardens. While big pots are all about pleasing aesthetics, they are not a great option for a small space. Indulging into the ideas like living walls and hanging pots with trailing plants not only leaves you room to walk in the garden but offers you space to put as many plants as you want.
Go For Variety
We know that we are looking for as much greenery as we can get in. But it's the flowers that will bring liveliness to your garden. The monochrome element of flowers is what people love these days.Opt for a range of sizes to create shape and variety. Also having an array of multicoloured flowers will give a pop of colour to your garden. Zinnia is one such plant that gives multicoloured flowers.
Choose Flexible Furniture
Once you have given a makeover to your garden, you would definitely want to spend some more time in it. Whether having a cup of tea or sitting down with your loved ones, garden furniture in your yard is always welcoming. Make sure that you go with flexible furniture—one that can be folded and kept aside or stacked up on each other, whenever it's raining. Also, make sure it's lightweight to keep aside when you want to walk on the grass.
Add Wall Climbers
When going for all things green, don't forget to add climbers to your list? Along with providing shade, the climbers create a lovely sense of enclosure and privacy in your garden. In addition, they give the walls that required colour. Bougainvillea is a great option to go with as they have beautiful flowers and you can also add a variety by choosing all of its different colours.
