Small Backyard Landscaping With Planter Boxes

Small Backyard Landscaping With Planter Boxes

The first of our small backyard landscaping ideas is to build a planter box or two… or a dozen!
 

Planter boxes are an excellent way to bring a small space to life. They work well in any kind of small backyard space. It doesn’t matter if you have a row house, patio or balcony.

Plastic planter boxes are lightweight and inexpensive. Redwood planter boxes are beautiful and weather resistant.

A great way to make gardening possible for folks with very little or no actual soil. Much like container gardening indoors or using raised beds, planter boxes let you control the soil, moisture and to some extent the sun exposure.

For extremely small yard landscapes they can even be hung on fences or railings. Giving everyone access to growing beautiful flowers and vegetables.

More Small Backyard Ideas… Why Not Build A Greenhouse?

A great small backyard idea is to build a small greenhouse as a focal point or center piece!
 
 
This gives you both a focal point and a useful gardening tool.

Of course you’ll want your small greenhouse to be an aesthetic asset to your space rather than an eye sore so be sure you chose the right kind of.

Some types of greenhouses that add interest to your small landscape are…

A Victorian Greenhouse!

Function and style slam together in a Victorian Greenhouse. The peaks and fancy work add appeal to any backyard.
 
The most traditional of all the greenhouse styles and probably what leaps to mind when you start brainstorm backyard landscaping ideas.  The classic Victorian greenhouse is as beautiful as it is functional. 
 
It an be dressed up with iron or wood gingerbread to give it a real fairy tale look.  Or built simply it’ll ad an old world cottage look to your back yard.

A Geodesic Dome Greenhouse

 Build A Dome Greenhouse
This is the ultimate in “Unique” and a true conversation starter.

Make this the focal point of your small backyard and you’ll have folks banging on your door to see it.
 
Not only that but they’re very efficient too!
 
Because of their dome shape they catch the sun from EVERY angle.  Eliminating many of the placement issues that traditional greenhouses face.
 

A Wood Greenhouse!

Wood is the universal construction material. You can dress this kind of greenhouse up or down depending on your sense of style. Make one out of old windows for some Recycled charm. Or make a band spanking new one for a delightful clean, whitewashed look.
 
Creative landscaping can turn any shed or greenhouse into a focal point. They become not only a place to start and winter over your plants but a delightful place to sit and relax on a cool day.

Build Raised Garden Beds!

Build Raised Garden Beds!

The last of our small backyard gardening ideas is to build raised garden beds. These work well when you have poor soil or no soil because you have total control over the planting medium you fill them with.
 

It’s possible to sculpt your backyard space and even carve out paths with your raised garden beds. Define areas or simply raise the beds up to make gardening easier on stiff joints.

 
 
The possibilities are endless with raised bed gardens.

Ask any serious gardener and they’ll tell you there’s no easier way to go than with a raised bed. Just set it up, add soil and plant.

Now for folks who’s yards are space challenged they have the added bonus of keeping the vegetation where you put it! You won’t find your garden creeping out to invade your bistro area or foot paths.
 
Weeding is almost as easy in these as it is an a planter box or a vertical garden too!
 
Use your raised beds to define your small space. Keep visitors eyes flowing to your focal point. Use them to border foot paths or connect several to create a plantable border around your backyard space.

Creating A Raised Bed Garden In Your Small Backyard Is Easy…
Just Add Soil, Plants & TLC!
