Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to start planning your garden for the season ahead. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran of the vegetable patch or you’ve never picked up a hoe in your life, there’s something for everyone out there. Depending on your property’s size, level of enthusiasm, and access to resources, you can go big or go small. We prefer to be somewhere in the middle.
But no matter how big or small your space, there’s always room for a few new ideas. From a lushly decorated container to a minimal veggie patch framed by a minimal fence, here are some of the best spring garden ideas for a small garden.
Add Height with a Trellis
If you have a small space in the back of your mind that’s begging to be used, a trellis could be just the thing. A quick and easy way to add some vertical space to your garden, a trellis can be used to create arches, trellises, and more.
Create a Wild Garden Oasis
A small space can seem limited and stuffy with conventional gardening methods, but an oasis of wildflowers, grasses, and shrubs can add breathing room to your area.
To create more of a natural feel, collect organic matter like dry leaves and twigs in the fall and winter, then layer them over your soil in a compost heap or wheelbarrow to add rich, organic compost to your soil.
Plant to suit your needs and your style. Vines can be used to create an outdoor room or indoor decoration.
Let the Sunshine In
Although you may be tempted to close the Shutters to keep out the summer heat, letting light into a small space can help create a more vibrant, healthy environment.
Window boxes and hanging baskets, which can be used indoors or out, are a great way to add color and texture to your space and help to brighten up your indoor garden or porch.
To create a home for your indoor plants, use decorative baskets or wooden crates. If you’re feeling more outdoorsy, a pallet crate could be just the thing.
Bring the Indoors Outside
Sometimes the best thing to do is to put your indoor plants outdoors. As the weather cools down and the days get shorter, making your indoor space feel more like an outdoor space can be a great solution to space limitations.
Using a large pot or a selection of smaller pots, bring your indoor plants outside for the summer. This can help reduce the risk of your indoor plants getting overwatered, giving them the sun they crave.
Grow Vertically with Climbing Roses
Climbing roses are great for adding height to a small space and can provide both summer and winter bloom, depending on the variety.
Add Color with Flowering Veggies
There are SO many vegetables and fruit that have gorgeous flowers! Adding the flowering veggies not only helps to add some color to the garden, but also can help supplement the dinner table! If your space lacks color, or you want to add a more vibrant pop of color to an otherwise simple area, plants like hydrangeas, marigolds, and chrysanthemums can help add a more dynamic feel to your spring garden.
Have a Little Fun in the Flowers
If you have children or are just a kid at heart, adding a few fun elements to your garden can help add a little life and energy to an otherwise simple space.
Using twine, natural elements, and maybe a little imagination, turn a plain pot into a functional miniature garden.
Benefits of Good New Spring Garden Ideas
Some people like to use their gardens as escapism, a time to connect with nature and look forward to spending time there every day. Growing your plants can be incredibly satisfying. Research shows that gardening lowers anxiety levels by 11% and has so many other advantages.
•Plants help clean and purify the air we breathe. Some plant even has properties conducive to relieving asthma symptoms, turning your lung problems into a past problem.
•Going outside helps lower stress levels by five times more than just sitting inside watching TV. Physically moving around helps increase oxygen flow to the brain, promoting creativity.
Gardening Ideas for Keeping Yourself Fit and Healthy
If you’re wondering whether or not gardening makes your whole body healthier or if you need further reasons to start a garden, no matter how small, here’s another long list of great new spring garden ideas:
Keeping busy outdoors will help fuse your thoughts and puts space between creative ideas; it also keeps you active and breathing fresh air instead of being cooped up inside all day like most people who get trapped in the matrix- only coming out once a month for the essential needs of running their house and functioning in society.
Also, spring is the perfect time of year to expand your creativity, and it’s healthy creative stress that we should all seek because it allows you to see situations or people in a new way. If you find yourself trying too hard to be open-minded and creative, the garden should give you much-needed breathing space. It’ll clear your mind and burn fat at the same time while also making it an enjoyable experience that will spring life into any dull evening or afternoon.
Finally, flowers are beautiful, but if you want to make other areas of your life more beautiful in the world, opt for planting vegetables, and you’ll get two bonuses in one. Vegetables, especially the leafy stuff like spinach, lettuce, kale, and bok choi, are highly alkaline, helping rid excess acidic nastiness from plant-eating animal bodies. In addition, non-animal eaters (vegetarians) tend to stop craving their overly acidic omnivore diets as though their plant diets are giving their bodies rejuvenating healing powers.
As the weather warms up and the days get longer, you may be looking for some spring garden ideas to get you started. Whether you’re looking for ideas for a small space or just starting and have limited gardening space, you can find something here to help get the season off to a great start.
