1. Repurposed Furniture
Don’t throw away your old dresser just yet. Why not give it a new purpose in your garden as a great display for small plants and succulents? You could also get old dressers at antique or furniture stores!

If you have unused pallets, you could use them to display your plants in terracotta pots. Clamp the pots onto the pallets and have it lean on your wall or fence!
3. Tiered Garden
This wonderful tiered garden is perfect for the “Do-it-yourself” gardener who does a little carpentry on the side. The rows of soil will be a great fit to your flowering plants and edible herbs.
4. Trellis Garden
Put your garden trellis to good use or make one yourself to display your climbing plants or juicy tomatoes in summer!
5. Balcony Garden
Do you lack a yard? No problem! Make use of the space in your balcony! Instead of many small potted plants that require different amounts of care, consider getting bigger plants in larger containers.
6. Mix Plants
Add texture to your small garden by mixing different plants of all sorts of shapes, color, and flowers. This will not only make your space look bigger, but add beautiful variety to your garden.
7. Hang Plants in Baskets
Hanging plants is great for adding colorful layers to your small garden. They’re very useful as well for keeping children and pets away from delicate herbs.
8. Window Boxes
Freshen up your view and add life to your windows by attaching boxes to the windowsills. Keep plants or herbs that will want a lot of sunlight!
9. Rooftop Gardening
Make up for the lack of yard space on your roof. Take advantage of all the sunlight for growing your favorite plants and meeting with your favorite people.
10. Containers For Homes With No Soil
Maybe you do have a yard, albeit one without soil. Adding layers and texture through plants in containers of various sizes and colors will add life to any space!
11. Succulent Wall Art
Stark blank walls can make spaces feel cold and look smaller. Add warmth to an otherwise boring wall by putting up succulents of your choice!
12. Herbs in Mason Jars
Always have fresh herbs on hand with this ingenious design. Just make sure they’re getting enough sunlight, and you’ll never need store-bought herbs again.
13. Create A Dramatic Background
A wall or fence in a darker color will make your brightly colored plants stand out even more and will further refresh and bland space.
14. Eliminate Lawns
Let’s face it – lawns take up a lot of space. Make every inch count by removing the turf and converting the area into a usable living space.

One more way to brighten up a wall is through excellent flowering climbers like bougainvillea.
16. Pots On Steps
Don’t forget to use those outdoor stairs and give them life. Add different textured plants in a variety of pots!
