Having a drink while the sun is shining and reading a book in your garden is everyone’s dream. Imagine yourself lying on the backyard swing, protected from the sun with a huge parasol. Yes, the idea is beautiful. Now imagine all of that shrunk into a small garden. Sad, right?
Many homeowners struggle with decorating their small gardens. Having a small garden is beautiful, but many people don’t know how to use the space efficiently. Most people have an idea of a spacious, green garden and only a small amount of people can imagine themselves enjoying a much smaller version. Small gardens can be especially romantic and enjoyable. Details can make up for any square foot of the ground you feel is missing. The road to having a perfect garden is having an excellent idea, and sometimes ideas are the hardest thing to get your hands on but don’t give up on your small garden just yet.
DETAILS CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING
Details do matter. A small vase, a chair, a coffee table or a plant can fill up your garden and give it a touch of your personality. It’s fun when you decorate your space and give it your own personal taste. Small gardens are a perfect opportunity to express yourself.
A COFFEE TABLE IS A SECRET
A perfect coffee table can do a lot more than you think. You can get them anywhere; from a furniture store or an open market. It is important that it brings your personal taste to your garden. Bright and energetic colours can lift up an entire garden. Your coffee table can look vintage or modern- it’s completely up to you. Perfect for sipping coffee in the afternoon.
GET A SMALL BENCH
A small bench can fit almost anywhere, and it can be used for reading, resting, talking, etc. We love the idea of a personalised bench –you can draw on it and paint it the way you want. You can use it to put some decorative things on; small flower pots, jars, pictures, etc.
PAY ATTENTION TO LIGHTS
You will need lights, and that’s your opportunity to play even more. We love paper lights or lanterns with some patterns on it. You can even get those in colour, so it will lift up the entire space of your small garden and give it a nice touch.
STONES AND ROCKS
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money but still want to your small garden to look great, find some beautiful rocks of different sizes. You can use rocks for writing and painting. We love writing some inspirational quotes or simply good morning texts! Try to arrange them in different ways and have some fun.
POTS, POTS AND MORE POTS
Pots can not only be filled with beautiful plants of different colours, but you can also find them in a variety of colours and styles. We love the classic terracotta pots. Plant flowers in various colours and use them to decorate your garden.
IT’S ALL UP TO YOU
As you can see, a small garden has room for details. There are many more things that you can incorporate into your small garden to make it your own personal oasis. It doesn’t matter how big it is as long as it’s visible that it’s yours. Don’t limit yourself to the stores, visit bazaars and flea markets. Have fun and experiment when decorating and designing your garden!
