Yesterday we figured out how to design our small space garden on paper. Today we will focus on hardscaping based on your design.
If you plan to have seating, then arrange your chair or chairs and perhaps a bistro set where you want it, depending on what you have decided upon.
After you have your seating in place, then arrange your containers in groups. You will want some plants in the group elevated so that you don’t just have a flat grouping. I usually use bricks for this.
You want to cluster groupings together in a way that is pleasing to the eye. Of course it depends on how much sun you have for how long each day when it comes to situating your containers. You should already have this figured out when you made your garden design.
I’ll be waiting about one month before I start adding plants to my containers. I want to see what all is coming back from last year and after danger of freezing.
Don’t forget nature. Many of you like to care for the yard birds. This means bird housing, food and water. I have a post written specifically for attracting birds to your small space. Look for it tomorrow morning.
