If you’ve always wanted to grow a garden but didn’t think you had room, consider growing one on your patio! With just a few simple tips and tricks, you can have your very own garden in a small and compact space.

Analyze your Patio:

While anyone can grow a garden, the light your patio receives will impact what you are able to grow. Keep track of how much sun your patio receives on an average day before purchasing any plants. Use this Gardener’s Guide to help decide what plants would thrive on your patio according to their sunlight needs. 

Use Containers: 

Planter boxes come in many different shapes and sizes and can be a great way of growing outdoor gardens. Make sure they have drainage holes so that water can drain and your plants don’t suffer from root rot. Consider referring to this comprehensive guide to determine how to pot your plants within containers.

Think Vertical:

Use tiered planters or shelves to grow more plants over less floor space. Not only do they save floor space, but tiered planters can also save water as the top plants absorb only what they need and let excess water trickle down. This tiered planter on amazon has over 1,000 five star reviews and can comfortably grow 12 different herbs in just one pot.

Research your Plants: 

Research the needs plants may have. Certain plants may not be compatible with container gardening. Other plants, such as mint, should always be potted by themselves because they will rapidly spread. Knowing about your plants’ needs will help you keep them flourishing throughout the summer.
