3 Ways to Fit a Garden onto Your Patio or Deck
Making the most of your home’s outdoor space can be difficult if you don’t have much room to work with. But that doesn’t mean buyers of homes in Victoria TX can’t spruce their patio or deck.

There are plenty of options that let you have the outdoor garden you’ve always wanted. From using everyday household items to specialized planters, here are a few ways you can make your limited outdoor space a little greener.

1. Use What You Already Have

You can begin to create your outdoor garden with some items that may already be sitting in your storage spaces. Ladders, wooden boxes, and everyday organizers can be used to hold potted plants and other garden accessories.

Paint a wooden ladder and use it to display your plants. It offers a unique outdoor accessory while giving you a functional and space-saving way to brighten up your patio or deck.

Stack wooden boxes to create a vertical display for your outdoor garden. Other storage items such as shoe holders and glass containers can also be used with a little bit of creativity.

2. Wall Gardens

Wall gardens are being seen in many outdoor spaces and on the walls of a growing number of businesses. But you can also apply this approach to your home’s patio or deck.

Wall planters are available so that you save valuable deck space while adding a decorative feature to your home.

Planters come in a variety of sizes and styles and allow you to place your plants on walls and other vertical spaces. They can be used to fill a wall space or as a simple addition that adds something new to your home’s look.

There are DIY wall planters that you can construct using materials that are available at your local hardware store. This provides you with additional options for creating your very own living wall garden.

3. Hang Your Garden

Hanging gardens offer a modern twist on your garden’s design. There are many ways to create a hanging garden on your patio or deck through the use of rods, S-hooks, and other hardware.

Plastic containers can be filled with soil while vegetables or fruits are threaded through them and left hanging. Like wall gardens, a hanging garden saves space, giving you the ability to add even more greenery to your patio or deck.
