Five great ideas for small gardens

By Rebecca Zhang

A garden is part of the whole package when it comes to selling your property. Even if your garden is small, there are still things you can do to make the most of your open space. Below is a list of the five best ideas for small gardens.

1. Create a seating area

A garden without a seating area will not inspire you to sit and enjoy your morning coffee or read the newspaper. By creating a comfortable seating area, you will increase its appeal to potential buyers.

The options include:

  • an understated bench
  • modern style bistro set.
Once you have decided on the seating, you can decorate the seat with cushions to give it a ‘cosy’ feel.

2. Hanging baskets

Hanging baskets are a perfect choice as they do not take up any floor space. Planting different coloured flowers in the baskets will add life to your little garden.

3. Mirrors

To create an illusion that there is more space, people often use mirrors in the home. This same strategy can be used in the garden. Make sure you place them in the correct positions in your garden to achieve the best impact.

4. Herb planter

A small garden may prevent you from growing your own produce. However, this does not necessarily have to be the case. By using a herb planter, you can have parsley, sage and rosemary growing in your own backyard! Place the herb planter outside your back door so you don’t have to travel far.

5. Rooftop garden

If your garden has a shed with a flat roof, you can make it into a rooftop planting area. Be sure to prepare in advance to avoid causing any damage to the structure. This is a great opportunity to plant in an area you might not have considered.
