How To Have a Garden with Limited Space
Imagine this. You walk outside on a warm summer evening, the smell of fresh cut grass fills your senses. You walk over to your abundant garden, full of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and more. You pick a few cherry tomatoes and pop them into your mouth. The sweet satisfaction of a all your hard work finally paid off.
Your eyes blink back open to the reality of your second story apartment. You have no yard and no way to make your gardening dreams come true. But what if this isn't actually the case?
With the rental movement on the rise and housing becoming more restrictive, it can be difficult to find the proper space to plant anything. We have some ideas for you, whether you have a small studio apartment, a strict HOA, or simply want to be able to eat home-grown veggies or have herbs to use on demand.
Pot It Up
Who says you need to have a plot of land to have a gorgeous garden? Many herbs as well as lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers and more can be grown indoors successfully. Look for seed packs that specify whether or not they are suitable for container growing, or come into our store and we can show you exactly what you're looking for! Container gardening is a great way to grow your favorite veggies wherever you'd like, without taking a ton of work and without needing a lot of space!
Raise it Up
If you happen to have a yard, even if it’s small:
A. I’m jealous
B. You can have an amazing outdoor garden in a raised garden bed!
Not only is this a space saver, it’s a relatively easy way to implement edible landscaping without using heavy rototillers, moving rock, or digging at all. Build your raised bed up to waist level if you can, your back and knees will thank you later!
What are some of the ways you’ve innovated you’re gardening tactics?
