I was paid to share this post with you for some amazing tips for a small family garden.

In some ways having a small family garden is great, less maintenance and obviously house prices are higher for houses with huge gardens. I actually love having quite a small garden and it suits my uselessness at gardening perfectly.

My tips for small gardens

Chose furniture wisely

If you have a small space then big furniture that does not fold down really is a no-no. Unless you never want to use the garden for anything other than sitting in the best plan is furniture that can be stacked or folded easily.

Tall rather than wide plants

When you choose plants be sure to see what they look like when they are mature. Plants which spread and cover an area may not be ideal for a smaller garden. Instead opting for tall climbing plants can make all the difference.

Consider having different levels

Having a raised level in the garden can give the appearance of more space. This can be done with a rockery, decking, or just a few steps. Check out small gardens on Pinterest for ideas.

Look after what you have

A small well-maintained area always looks much nicer than a tiny and messy garden. If you look after it the size shouldn’t be an issue for visitors as it will look lovely.

Play equipment

If you want to include play equipment in the garden consider how much floor space they take up and cover. For example, a trampoline may cover most of a little garden. On the other hand, a swing needs the same sort of space to be used but doesn’t take over the space you have in the same way!

Bird feeders

Instead of a bird table that takes up a lot of space why not make your own teacup hanging feeder and hand it from a tree or corner of the shed perhaps?
