I love gardens! Every kind in fact. I am all for growing plants that are pretty but still be edible. My patio garden has a great variety of plants, most of them are in containers. I decided to try something a little different. Mini gardens. Perfect for small spaces like I have.
A friend of mine inspired me to try a mini garden. You can find him on Facebook, here. https://www.facebook.com/taman.miniatur.7
He is a pro! Mine can’t even come close but I had a lot of fun in making them.
Here are a few I made, look below for a mini tour. Everything is very small, from the tiniest plants I could find and even some furniture I made of rocks, sticks and Popsicle sticks. The tiny signs and other things I bought at a local arts and crafts store.
The biggest one is in a fire pit thing I had laying around. I bought the gazebo and fence.
I think the pansies were too big, but I used them anyway.. I put a quarter on the flagstone for size reference.
I ended up by putting tiny gravel down to cover the soil. It set the flagstones in, and made it look better.. I didn’t get a picture of that. I did this about two weeks after I had finished for an added touch.
In the one below you can see where I made a picnic bench.
Furniture made of tiny pebbles and shells. This one was made to sit in a mini garden. It has a waterfall a table with cocktails.
Table for two??!!
A tiny cast iron bench I bought. I noticed the tag after the photo. lol must pull that off.
I sprayed this pot with that textured spray paint. Makes it look like a rock wall, but its just a cheap plastic container that was just sitting empty in the yard.
Below is a recliner or bench lounge with some tables..
They were so fun to make. A great rainy day project..
Below is a 2″ by 2″ rock house. You can see my glasses for size reference.
The rock house has a planted garden on the roof.
Below I made a tiny pergola and table.
In a hanging basket..
And another park bench.
All in all this was super fun to do. You should try one!
