DIY: Apartment Garden

Usually, people who live in apartments often have a few tiny plants hanging around in pots on windowsills or after magically finding some floor space, but decide against bigger plants or more than a few that might take up too much space. However, a little space is all that you need to have an amazing well-nurtured garden in your home.

You may not be able to have a complete garden without a patio or backyard, or even large plants, but there are many ways you can have your own flourishing mini garden. With just a wall, rack, greenhouse and many other pieces, you can have a mini decorative garden in your own home.

-Invest in a windowsill greenhouse: Furniture and décor stores such as IKEA sell tiny terrarium greenhouses to house some of the tiniest plants. You could even make your own if you click here how to find out how. Just make sure the terrarium is not covered by curtains or obstructed by anything that might block sunlight for the plants!

-Make your own vertical garden: All you need for a vertical garden is a wooden or steel mesh rack, a few mason jars or plant pots, and nails or Command™ strips to hang the structure that will hold the plants. Decorate it with candles or paint your wood rack to give a really rustic feel to your vertical garden. Click here to learn more!

-Hanging Garden: Use a garment rack to hang your potted plants in a corner with free space. The design will make a nice addition to any bedroom. Just make sure you buy plant pots with wire hangers to complete this look. Click here to check out this idea!

-Fish Bowl Terrarium: Have an old fish bowl that your poor goldfish didn’t last in? Don’t throw it out! Instead, make your own affordable fishbowl terrarium equipped with soil, rocks and your favorite plants to make a nice garden that takes up little space. And, instead of just taking up space on your windowsill, place them anywhere you can such as a night stand or end table. Click here to make your own fishbowl terrarium!

-Bottle Gardens: If you have old glass bottles, you can make your own glass bottle windowsill garden. All you have to do is cut the bottle and place mesh, string, soil and, of course, the plant, in the neck of the bottle. Then, you place the neck of the bottle in plastic cups filled with water so the plant can drink when necessary! Click here to learn more!

When living in a small space, it is important to understand how to use what is available to you. Don’t buy big potted plants when you can make your very own apartment garden!
