1. Find or make the perfect pots
Fill your small garden with plants that overflowing eye-catching pottery. Any plant will do – let the pots make the statement. Need a fun family activity? Break out the paint brushes and terracotta pots and have at it. Before you know it, you’ll have the perfect personal touch to add to your garden, and a great memory to go with it.

Give your wall a lush touch by planting climbing foliage. Filling your walls with greenery helps you utilize every square inch of growing space. Before you know it, your small garden area will turn into your personal oasis.

3. Get creative with planters
