You don’t have to have a country estate to have a lush garden. Surprisingly, you can create the illusion of a garden oasis in small spaces with the strategic placement of greenery San Jose CA.

Vertical Gardens

Vertical gardens are the perfect solution for those who are space-challenged. They range from sophisticated and expensive wall installations to do-it-yourself ease. Plant a wall of cool succulents or grow your own herbs and vegetables. If you want the look of greenery without the upkeep or if you’ve found that your thumb is more brown than green, you can use realistic artificial plants in wall hangers to get the same effect.

Hanging Baskets

If you don’t have a lot of floor or patio real estate, try going up. Hang some summer flowers or embrace a 70s vibe and do a macrame hanger inside with an airplane plant. You can even hang tomato plants. For a little bit of privacy, consider hanging plants of different lengths on a patio for a living screen. Hang lush ferns on a front porch for a welcoming touch. 

Potted Trees

If you have high ceilings or a blank spot in your room, a potted tree can add vertical interest while helping to purify the air. Use tall trees as a focal point indoors or in a small outdoor space. Try incorporating fruit trees for a delicious fragrance, beautiful foliage and an edible crop. Mix up colors, textures and shapes with your plants, just like you would with furnishings and pillows.  

Windowsill Gardens

The easiest way to get that fresh from the garden taste by growing herbs and greens in windowsill gardens. Cacti and succulents thrive indoors in a sunny spot, as well. Use that often overlooked windowfront real estate to try your hand at microgreens or even a bonsai tree.
