Compact gardening does not mean second rate gardening, in fact, creative gardeners can have amazing compact gardens, even container gardens for those with no land to cultivate. Compact gardening is especially proper in big cities. So if you live in a big city or urban area, don’t worry, you can still have a nice beautiful garden.
Living in a city does not mean you have to give up having a great garden, including a flower garden, vegetable garden, herb garden or any combination of them. People who live in large cities have learned to enjoy compact gardening and container gardening.
Maximizing the space you have available is the key to success for this type of gardening. Knowing how large things grow, how big their root structure is and things of that nature will help you plan your garden.
Compact gardening requires advance planning. Knowing as much as you can about what you plan to grow, how fast it grows, how it grows, what kind of light it needs, etc., will help you choose the right things to plant in your garden. The last thing you want to do is go into it without planning and have to restart your whole project!
Many people have maximized space by using vine gardening, water gardens, container gardens and herb gardening in order to keep their green thumb in use while having only a limited space available to garden in.
The only limits compact gardening has are the limitations of your imagination. With the right level of creativity and advanced planning you can have an incredible compact garden no matter where you live.
Many stores carry items specifically for compact gardening in order to help you maximize your available space. The use of the right equipment will go a long way towards helping you maximize your garden. Smaller equipment makes your work more efficient when you have a limited space to work in.
There are many resources, books and discussion groups about compact gardening, water gardens, vine gardening, container gardening and related subjects that are all geared towards the person looking to have a great, yet compact garden.
Rather than lamenting over the lack of space, start thinking about all the great things you can do in the space that you do have and you will be well on your way to having a great compact garden. So stop wasting your time worrying about it and go out there and start it!
