I have listed a few small garden ideas that may work well whether you have a small yard, no yard, or just want to add something different to your landscape. When using these decorative small garden ideas, always use potting soil and follow other directions for potted plants.
Keep in mind that plants may not survive the winter unless planted in the ground or insulated from the cold.
Pots of various sizes placed on top of or inside each other to make a terraced potted garden). Pots can be lined up straight on top of one another or tilted to the side. This one uses a piece of rebar for stability.
Traveling (plant in a wheelbarrow or small wagon).
This garden can be left in one spot or moved around for variety or to follow the path of sunlight through your yard. Whether it travels or not it can look like it could.
