No Yard? No Worries, You Can Still Garden

Maybe you’re moving to a new property that doesn’t look like it can cater to your hobby of choice. Maybe you’ve always wanted to give gardening a go but you don’t have the space. Whatever the case, having no garden on your own property isn’t the end of your green-thumbed dreams. Here, we’re going to look at how to indulge when it looks like the space you have won’t let you.

Get indoors
Nowadays, there are plenty of ways to garden indoors. In fact, one of the best parts of indoor gardening is choosing containers and placement that contributes to the d├ęcor of the home as a whole. One of the challenges about gardening indoors is about properly knowing the demands of it. Your garden won’t get as much natural water, so if you don’t want to spend too much time watering all your indoors plants, then you want some with fewer demands. Cacti aren’t your only option. Orchids make a very popular choice for indoor gardens because of their relatively little need for water.
Get vertical
If you want plants that can bask in the sun and the rain, then you should look at using any vertical space available. Lightweight trellises with attached planter gardens offer some space that won’t only brighten up your yard but are also very easy to move if you need to. You don’t necessarily need to build permanent structures to house your vertical garden. Just make sure you carefully consider the placement of them. Take a look at whatever outdoor space you have and how shade affects it during the day.
Get communal
If you simply want to garden for the enjoyment of the hobby or you want to grow some of your own food, then it’s not as important that it’s a part of your home. In fact, allotments can be a great way to even make some friends that share the hobby. An allotment blog can help you find the garden centers near you and even the events that pop up that allow you to play a bigger role in the community. If there isn’t one available, then you could go about pushing to start one, yourself.
Get inventive
If none of these options sound like a fit, then you might need to put a little more creativity in where you decide to add a little green. Hanging baskets at the entry of a home are a great way to add some curb appeal to the home, for instance. A drab balcony can be transformed with a little greenery, too. Even windowsills can be great choices if you use the ones that are going to be facing the sun for most of the day. There are plenty of ways to find space to pot your plants.
Gardening can be as creative or perfunctory as you want it to be. Think about what you want above all else and make the right choice of how you get it. Having no garden shouldn’t be any obstacle.
