Compartmentalizing your garden

The team over at FIX have created this great infographic inspired by (you may have guessed) urban gardening ninja Robin Horton. If you’re interested in or experimenting with any of the following, you need to check out the great information below:

  • Green walls
  • Hanging gardens
  • Container gardens
  • Pallet gardens

Horton share lots great tips on repurposing and reusing common household items into great gardening grids.

Backyards, patios, decks, and terraces can benefit from creating separation to establish different outdoor rooms. Think it of it as creating multiple living experiences. It takes a bit of creativity and inventiveness to optimize these indoor and outdoor spaces, especially small, limited ones.

So go ahead — start compartmentalizing your garden piece by piece, plant by plant!  We promise not to judge.
