When B and I bought our current home, one of the many selling points was the small back yard. We were at a point in our lives where we just wanted a house and didn’t want to spend our entire weekend doing yard work. Oh how things change.
As I get older, I find that spending time in the back yard either in the garden or in my flower beds is actually therapeutic and a way for me to unwind and destress after a long day. Last year we removed our larger garden that took up nearly have the yard and planned on replanting it closer to the garage. With so many other yard projects, we ended up skipping the garden for the year.
This year, with the pandemic and spending a lot more time at home, we built new planter boxes and put up a wooden picket fence around it to keep the dogs out.
While most of the garden is in place, we still have some finish work so I thought today I’d share with you some Small Yard Garden Inspiration. You’ve already seen the addition of my DIY Garden Shed but there is still plenty we want to do.
To give you an idea of what inspired me, below are some of my favorite small gardens from around Pinterest.
