A deep, raised bed filled with a rich, nutritious soil mix provides plenty of room for root development. A small yard translates into a small garden, but there's still plenty you can do with limited space.
Create the Illusion of SpaceVarying the grade-either up or down-provides the illusion of greater space. Create Space with ContainersOften, the problem with a small outdoor area is a lack of gardening space. Grow Up with VinesAnnual vines such as this black-eyed Susan (Thunbergia alata) provide a quick and efficient way to use vertical space.
Plant More in a Raised BedRaised beds solve a space problem by allowing you to plant more intensively. Then, I waited and waited through the spring for my son and his buddy to come cut it down and chip all the branches. And I went shopping for fencing, going into sticker shock over the white vinyl scalloped top picket fence of my dreams. Since the fence went up, creating a safe-from-the-pups environment, I have been slowly digging up and bringing over roses and perennials from my old home. And removing the previous owner's plantings is slowing me down too, as people I have offered the plants I don't want do not seem to feel any urgency about coming and digging them up and taking them away. I can answer your question about what people are thinking when planting huge forest trees in their yards, Ingrid -- they don't, or at least have limited imaginations.
Oh - and on one side of the patio there is a clematis that thinks it makes a wonderful trellis. The charming fencing in a public garden near the river took less than two years to have mold on its shaded side.
Closer to us, more conventional 'horse' white plastic fencing went up and got moldy within a year.
Shed Some LightStorage sheds don't have to be dark and dreary utilitarian objects best hidden from view. Gazebo CoverupWhether you're trying to cover up an old gazebo or simply create an interesting effect, training vines to scamper up the structure can solve the problem. Gazebo ReinventedThis slat-roof gazebo with built-in benches makes an ideal stage for planters and hanging baskets. Rustic PassageDead branches can be attached to form a passageway into a different part of the garden. A Big SupporterA heavy-duty support is needed for large woody vines like wisteria, which can damage or even pull down lesser structures. Filling the GapsThe sides of a garage, shed or house often call out for some sort of decoration. Match Your SurroundingsA painted gazebo or ornate metal structure would look out of place here, but the unfinished wood and simple design of this gazebo feel right at home with the rustic scenery. Appealing NotionThis entry arbor long ago gave up its original mission for more aesthetic appeal -- becoming a home to a glorious climbing rose will tend to do that. But lattice covered by sweet autumn clematis (Clematis terniflora) provides a backdrop and utilizes unused space between the water feature and the building.


In this case, the vine will occupy the space until the companion evergreen is large enough to take over. An understory tree such as this Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) is small enough that it won’t get in the way.
To prevent that, this wall is painted a light color, decorated with colorful plants, and outfitted with a lattice opening. I think the fencing you got might actually work better--it makes your yard appear larger and will show off the roses more (when they get planted). I spent the first 2 or 3 years here just doing demolition and removal, it seemed (took longer than I thought it would, too), and the yard was in a constant state of disaster. In Amherst, Ma, the tradition was to plant them about 6' away (or less!) from the living room window, guaranteeing that in a few years there would be no view. This part of garden creation is the hardest--starting from scratch, removing, and installing.
I think a panel or two would make a great trellis for a couple of my clematis since it is fine enough for them to catch hold of . It took them two more years to realize that the mold wouldn't go away by itself, but needed scrubbing at least every other year. Since it's no-dig I might try it in my side yard where the tree roots made it impossible to put in posts for a traditional fence.
Match the material and style to the garden's design, then choose a color to complement (as shown) or contrast with surrounding plants. Arbors are the perfect start, but they'll be more impressive when you outfit them with a gate and matching fence.
Cedar, locust, and chestnut will last the longest, but any kind of wood will work for shorter periods. Here a simple trellis comes in handy to fill the space between windows and reign in a rambling vine. A garage supports vines, while an unused driveway is covered in gravel and turned into an ersatz patio, complete with container garden. I have a Pot Ghetto!!) It's been hard, though, because we have not been getting much rain and it has been hot.
Then I decided to wait to see what the daylilies were that the previous owner had planted along the south wall of the house. Like you, I'm initially attracted to the white vinyl fences, but they are rather dominating features and just slightly oversized, if you want to know the truth. And yes, I have transplanted roses as hot July was coming on, but I had to spend a lot of time watching and watering them so they would get through the hot months. I'm thinking about a fence like that for my 19 feet opening, which deer come to eat my roses. I tried to get every piece as you've described, but in my experience it's worth waiting a year or so to see if a piece you've missed decides to pop up. It's a pity they don't carry the pre-made gates any more; they list it on line but apparently it no longer exists, according to the in-store folks. That's a lot better than the $850 quote I received for wooden fence to close the 19 feet gap.


The bright two-tone paint job, charming window, and colorful planters turn this simple shed into a valued part of the garden.

Most of these plants like cooler temperatures, so they can be switched out with heat lovers in summer. This is going so much s-l-o-w-e-r than I ever imagined, I thought I had better give an update sooner than later. I mean, what do you want people to be looking at--an expensive white vinyl fence or a bunch of roses showing through the more "invisible" fence?
I'm sorry about your knees; it gives me the ouchies just thinking about it, probably because mine seem to be starting on a downward path. And when I sit on the patio, although I am somewhat screened from neighbors' views I can still see out perfectly well.
In justice to certain clueless owners, I must say that it can be difficult to imagine how big that twig you're planting will get, and in not too many years, too.
Those little buggers are persistent, and it only takes a small deeply rooted piece to come back with a vengeance. Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither will this garden, LOL, not even in a year apparently.
I did get pieces of my found roses dug and moved: most are handling the move well but one has had all of its leaves dry up although the canes are still green.
Well, the Stella's will get transplanted but I'm now in the process of digging out the ditch lilies, hoping to get every last piece so they don't come back! Well, in my region, March is the best time to transplant--the dormant roses hardly even notice they were moved.
Yes, I am happy with the fence choice - and I am so delighted by all your comments - Thanks!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it pushes out new leaves - but it sure makes me nervous to dig any more considering it is going into July. But the seasons don't always work out the way we want, so it would be nice if you could at least wait til fall to transplant most of the roses.
Each panel hooks together to the next panel with a sort of hook on one side and rings on the other.
The only thing is you have to plan for it to come out to a run that is divisible by 6; there is no way to cut down a panel that I can see.
I don't think it would hold up if I was going to keep my two rambunctious dogs INSIDE it, but since they are outside and only need it as a barrier from getting to the plants, it works fine.
