When you have a garden, space is going to be something that you are going to have to deal with. Especially in places like Bristol, you might find that you don’t’ have enough space to have the kind of garden that you want.

However this is something that really isn’t true, because there are many ways that you can deal with space in your Bristol garden design without worries. No matter what, you’ll find that space in your Bristol garden design is very important, so here are some tips to follow to make sure that you are making the most out of your space issues.

Unusual places

The best way to deal with space in your Bristol garden design is to find spaces that you didn’t think about and turn them into gardens. Rooftop gardens have become very popular because these are spaces that aren’t used for anything, and so people turn them into gardens.

Also, you can use things like window boxes and even buckets to have gardens in smaller spaces like the front steps and other areas that you might not have thought of. A back alley can easily be turned into a garden with the right kind of care and love that is needed to make the most out of it.

Stay Creative

When you are dealing with space in your Bristol garden design you have to make sure that you are finding ways to be creative. Planting things in usual spaces might mean that you have several small gardens all over one area of space. This is something that could make for a very neat set up and it could be fun to look at and to show others. This might be a great way to have a Bristol garden design without having to worry about the space issue.

Another thing that you can think about when it comes to space an Bristol garden design is having a garden that goes up instead of out. If you plant things on shelves in some small area, you might find that you can have a great garden in a very small space.

No matter what, your Bristol garden design should be about you and about your personality. There are simply too many ways for you to have a great time with your Bristol garden design, so you should find something that meets your needs and then find a way to make it your own. You’ll be surprised at the great things that you can come up with for your Bristol garden design.
