Many people are confused and unsure as they have mindset that only big home with large yard which can have beautiful garden. This mindset needs to be changed now as the small space in front of home can be changed into beautiful garden too. Here is the way how to have it.
Design the Garden
If you have the land but not build the home yet, it is better to plan where you need to place your garden. But nowadays people buy home, not build it so they do not have the choice except optimizing the space available in front of their home or other area. Cover the area with grasses, artificial or real based on your budget and preference. In this small area, the presence of grasses will make it look green and natural like a garden shall be.
In small space people cannot dream big plants but small ones. They need to plants flowers on the pots or potteries. To make it colorful, put two or three kinds of flowers on one pot. It will be better rather than only putting one kind of flower in one pot and plant others on different pots. This is the key to make the garden very colorful and beautiful. There is no need to plant many kinds of flowers. Few colorful ones are enough. Place wooden or stone bench near the garden so people can sit there to enjoy the beauty.
How to Maintain
After making the garden, people need to maintain it so the garden will keep its beauty day to day. Ensure that there is no weed grows on the garden. Cut withered flower or plants and take away dead flowers or twigs. Water them properly and control the pest.
