Most people with small front, side, or back yards, and those living in apartments do not plant a garden because they do not think they have enough space. Planting a large vegetable garden in a huge back yard is ideal, but it is not the only way to have vegetables, flowers, or herbs. Growing can be done on a patio, balcony, or even indoors with success. One way to have an herb garden is to have a garden window installed in the kitchen. The glass has four panels so the window creates a clear box that allows full sunshine to help herbs grow. Fresh herbs can be enjoyed all year around and will be readily accessible right in the kitchen, which is perfect for cooking.
Planters with flowers or vegetables can be placed near a window, on a roof or balcony, or in a small side yard. Using planters also works if there is no soil around or if the soil is not suitable for growing things. People planting indoors can get unfinished wooden planters and paint or stain them to match the decor of any room. Potting tables can be used to plant in a confined area. It avoids using the dining room or kitchen table for planting, reduces cleanup, and prevents dirt and seeds from getting into the carpet. These are also convenient to use outdoors because there is less bending involved when potting plants. The edges of the table keep all the dirt and debris from scattering everywhere.
Raised garden beds are also an excellent resource when creating a garden in limited space. Short or ground-level vegetables, such as cucumbers, squash, peppers, or bush beans can be planted in the soil, and vegetables that take up more space, like tomatoes and corn, can be planted in the raised bed. That doubles the garden space instantly. Indoors, the beds do not take up as much floor space as planters. They will fit nicely in an alcove, along a wide hallway, or next to a wall in the kitchen or den. Garden storage units of all sizes can be used to keep tools in one place so they are handy.
