1. Backyard Patio Garden Ideas
Adding plants and gardening in your backyard takes a plain yard and turns it into a beautiful escape. If you have a small yard, tall plants and hanging baskets can give your backyard a whimsical secret garden feel. Larger backyards benefit from sweeping landscaping that defines the property into multiple usable spaces.
Start your patio makeover by looking at backyard ideas. This will help you to understand what works and what doesn’t in the space you have available.
Large container gardening may work well on a large patio. However, smaller patios don’t have the space for these large containers. Vertical gardening is a smart idea for small patios and balconies. However, it’s a bit unnecessary for large patios.
Pavers are beautiful but can become very expensive when you have a large space planned out for your patio. Hanging planters give you additional gardening space but only work if your patio has a stable overhead covering that can support the hanging planters’ weight.
2. Deck Patio Garden Ideas
If you already have a wood deck area, then you’re ahead of the game. You have an empty space that’s prime for turning into a beautiful outdoor living space or dining area.
It doesn’t have to be huge; you just need enough space for a table and chairs or sofa. Scale your patio furniture to the amount of floor space that you have.
One of the most common balcony garden ideas is to use potted plants. These are nice because they allow you to grow plants without needing access to dirt in the ground.
If you want to make things easier on yourself, keep the plants in the pots that they come in from the store. Place that pot inside of your decorative ones. Then when they annuals die; you can easily pick them up and replace them. If you prefer to grow perennials, you can transfer your plants as they outgrow their pots and then easily put them back in the larger pot you had it in.
