If your outdoor space is small but would love to have a patch of green or flowers, having a raised bed is one way to achieve it. Without compromising space, here are some raised bed ideas that gives you a greener outdoor space.
Instead of having a water feature, why not use a fountain stand as a plant container instead? Not only will it provide ample space, it’ll also allow for a well-drained soil. From succulents to flowering plants, you’re sure to have a pretty fountain of flowers blooming in no time.
Plant multitude of plants in a small space by utilizing your vertical space through shelves. Use a ladder-style shelf so you can easily reach the topmost shelf bed and let each rung get their share of the sun. You can also plan your plants’ position giving those which do not need a lot of height allowance.
Great for aerial plants like orchids, turn your small space into an orchidarium instead. You may not have a lot of space but a hanging garden frees more walk space for you while still giving you the blooms you’d love to have. Plant a variety and soon you’ll have an orchid garden that can rival the hanging gardens of Babylon.
Using a trellis or just letting a crawling plant start to hug your walls, get the quaint and classic walled garden. You can break the green monotony by choosing a flowering vine that’ll pepper the green wall with lovely blooms. This wall design will have your exteriors come alive while still keeping your small space free from clutter.
Even if you only have a small outdoor space, clever raised bed ideas like this give you the best of both the gardening world and space. All it takes is some creative imagination and willful hands.
