5 Ideas to Create a Space-saving Urban Garden Retreat
Step 1: Build a Privacy Backdrop
With just a few tools and supplies, you can build a privacy wall that will keep your space separate from that of your neighbor and provide places for climbing plants such as ivy to grow.
Step 2: Hang Pretty Plants
Give old containers new life by using them as planters, then hang them up to save valuable floor space.
Step 3: Design Small Space Seating
Get comfy with handmade pillows and cushions. Use bold colors to make the space warm and inviting or neutrals for a clean, classic look.
