Gardens are a concept within the design family that can be flexiable, adaptable and fun no matter the size or style of your home. Fitting in pesky corner space, to covering an entire backyard or even being contained within a simple window pane, gardens can be anywhere and everywhere. 

With the right tender love and care, gardens should be used for both functional and aesthetic reasons. Providing you with fresh herbs and vegetables or simply filling random, otherwise useless spaces in your home – it doesn't matter what you're here to use them as, we're here to help. These 20 tiny gardens are possible in any home, at any home. Some work for interiors and some, for exteriors! Get your creative juices flowing!

1. Add sculpture

Simply add raw stone stepping stones and random arrangements of greenery for a modern, east-Asian look!

2. More traditional

Layering and stacking is a great concept in gardening – there are around four stacked walls here and each adds a new dimesnsion to the side of this home. 

3. Modern

In narrow spaces add wider stepping stones with a bit of grass in-betweeen and lining tress for a modern and clean look.

4. Compartmental gardening

For those of you looking for low-maintenance and a cute idea. Use old crates or pieces of plywood for your her and vegetable gardens.

5. Asian, indoor gardening

Notice the contrast of colours here – the white stones, the bright greens and the darker shrubs. They all work perfectly well with a dark grain wood!

6. Small patios

Use large-scale planting boxes to add greenery and flowers to your balcony without making it seem over-crowded.

7. Corner space

Pesky corner space can be an annoyance – but not if you use it for a great purpose like gardening! Simply install triangular planters and add any flowers or plants you like.

8. Mini-meditation gardens

Weird spaces often leave us feeling confused and and wishing we could do more. Indoor and outdoor gardens are a perfect way to make random spaces functional.

9. Succulents

Succulent gardens are perfect for those looking for a great, unique look for a low-maintenance and low-cost!

10. Cactii garden

A cactii garden will add a tropical, western dimension to your home, all the while bring low-maintenance and something fabulous to look at. 

11. Vines and vertical gardening

If the trend of vertical gardening scares you, try a simple board and wine vines to start with – this will add a traditional, yet sophisticated look to your home!

12. Upper-half

Want to make a space look bigger? Add plants to the top-half to expand eye contact up and away!

13. Use wood!

Wood both gives and absorbs water, so planting in it can be perfect, as long as you have great draining. Wood can easily start rotting in moist environments, so be careful to watch for this!

14. A simple line

Don't underestimate the power of a simple line of tropical plants or ferns, surrounded by small patches of flowers. 

15. Keep it simple

Quite a unique garden is what we have here. Perfect for those living in rainy climates and with modern homes. 

16. Bamboo

Simply adding bamboo can make any area of your home more unique than before. 

17. Perfect for Western homes

Don't be afraid to mix an interesting array of succulents, cactii and tropical plants to get an interesting visual space. 

18. For indoor areas

An easier version of vertical gardening is to use gardening poles and let your plants crawl up them gradually!

19. Creeping flocks, large-scale flowers

If you're looking to save time and energy, look at large-scale flowers that will be low-maintenance and spread easily covering a large amount of space. Creeping flocks are a perfect flower for this!

19. Get crafty!

Add different elements together to make your hanging or vertical garden unique and interesting! Grab all of those old planters in storage and paint them to give them a whole new life. 

20. Look up!

Don't forget that it's super smart to keep your gardening vertical in smaller rooms. It will add a sense of depth and an illusion for your guests!

Gardening can really change your home and provide you with a lot of different options to work with! Be sure to be creative and choose gardening techniques that properly fit in with both the style and size of your home.
