Landscaping for Your Small Outdoor Space

Honeysuckle Nursery Small Outdoor Space

Having a small outdoor space doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice landscaping possibilities.

Just because you have a small outdoor space doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of it and create a beautiful and whimsical area for everyone to enjoy. Whether you want to be surrounded by stunning flowers or have a place to entertain your friends and family, there are ways to create the perfect landscape design for your small outdoor space.

Utilize Curves

Straight lines are boring, and they eat up space. When you’re working in a tighter area, utilize curves and angles to make the most of it. Have a visually interesting curved paver walkway installed to create a delightful path through your small outdoor space that can be surrounded by flowers, trees, and bushes. This path can lead to a fire pit, seating area, or even a hidden nook where you can hide to enjoy your latest book.

Go Vertical

Vertical trellises and garden planters are great options when you need to save space. Plant some creepers or start up a vertical herb garden. You can also use hanging planters to add some flowers or succulents that won’t fit in your garden or maybe don’t do well in your soil. Try out any of the many DIY options, such as growing in pallets or hanging small jars from wooden planks to grow herbs. Utilizing verticality is a mainstay in space optimization.

Plant Dwarf Trees

Not all trees are massive. Consider dwarf trees that are appropriate for your planting zone and use them to create another layer in your design. Dwarf trees are also great options for some added privacy and dense growers can create a nice windscreen that keeps your outdoor space more comfortable even on windy days. Use them to create a perimeter or use them to break up sections of your space so you can have multiple functional areas that are kept separate.
