10 Small Space Garden Ideas

One of my favorite parts of summer is working in my yard. A few years ago I decided to give gardening a try. To me, it was totally experimental, and it continues to be every year. Some vegetables grow and flourish and some not so much. The problem I have, and many people do is how to have a garden in a small space. Here are 10 Small Space Garden Ideas on how to create a Small Space Garden. It’s very rewarding to eat what you grow, and the vegetables taste better than anything you will buy at the grocery store! Give it a try – start small!

Small Space Garden Idea Supplies You May Need

  • Pallets (recycled/repurposed)
  • Mason Jars
  • Seeds (depending on your desired garden)
  • Gardening Tools
  • Knee Pads
  • Gardening Gloves

1. Free Standing Vertical Pallet Herb Garden

A great way to repurpose pallets you may have laying around (or ones being thrown away). What’s even better is the pallets don’t have to be in perfect complete shape to reuse them for this garden hack. You’re going to be taking a few pieces off to allow for plant growth and planting anyways!

2. Hanging Basket Garden

Have space that you can hang things from? These multi-tier hanging baskets are an easy way to grow and save space at the same time! Even better you can usually find a set of baskets in many stores for around $20 or less!

3. Mason Jar Garden Planters

You can get a box of mason jars for a pretty reasonable price these days. Then all you need is the clasps and boards to adhere the jars to. Plant herbs that you use on a regular basis and watch them grow!

4. Vertical Vegetable Garden

You can repurpose an old picnic table for this DIY. You will add your holes and put your plants in from the backside of the table. The key to using this setup is to use plants that need plenty of drainage after being watered.

5. Gutter Garden

Another great way to repurpose or recycle! These gutters can be painted any color to pair well with any outdoor theme or home! You will need to drill small drain holes on the underside of these to allow for water drainage.

6. Container Garden

Ok ok, so you can basically recycle and repurpose so many things to make into a garden! Have an old bucket? Turn it into a garden addition for your new tomato plant!

7. Garden Spiral

Create more space within the area you’re working with by using this spiral design! Use height instead of width and grow your garden up!

8. Grow Cucumbers on a Trellis

So as you may or may not know, cucumbers need something to grow up in order to flourish. You can use a trellis or other makeup of items that allow the vines to grow and create a new garden for your cucumbers!

9. Repurposed Dresser Drawer Garden

Plenty of old dressers get thrown out all the time. Have one that the kids have broken a drawer on? Now you can give it a new life and have it help grow food for your family! Find old ladders that can be repurposed or repaired to make this an even more frugal way to garden!

10. Small Space Salad Box

This is an easy and great way to use an entryway table that may have been damaged or has seen better days. It doesn’t take up very much space and you can rotate what plants you put into it.

  1. Hello. Thanks very much for these great small space garden ideas. I’m definitely going to take inspiration from some of these – I like the trellis. I was looking at other articles as well for small garden design ideas and I came across this page. It lacks helpful illustrations (which you have) but it talks about things like shaping flower beds and using cuttings, and it addresses some aspects of gardens that this post doesn’t. I thought it would be beneficial to link it here. Thanks for the great post!

  2. I love spring. Spring is now upon us and I get pretty excited for spring because it’s the time of the year when I really deep clean the house and I’m talking everything! I go through my makeup, the closets, the basement, you name it. This season is really dear to me. I every year awaiting for this season.
