Last Updated on byAre you tired of seeing concrete right after you come into your dorm? Feeling a little out of touch with nature? Need a little green in your life but you don’t have room for the hanging garden of Petunia? Look no further because we have collected 5 fun DIY planter ideas for limited area that will give your room a nature touch. Don’t let limited space prevent you from trying out your green thumb and creativity.
5.Market on a Table
Small plants such as cherry tomatoes and chillies are eye-catching as well as edible. When potted together on a table, they will transform a tiny patch of porch into a lively farmer’s market-in-your-porch. Mix and match the colours to provide a vibrant look. If you want something more challenging and artistic, paint your terracotta pots with unique designs to give them a more DIY touch. Source
Hang an old canvas or over-the-door shoe organizer on a fence or wall, and then fill the shoe spaces with potting soil and herb plants. Voila! You have yourself a homemade, self-regenerating wall of fresh herbs for your cooking needs. Make sure to move them to a bigger planter once they are bushy. Source
3.Recycled Hanging Garden
Recycling is a great way to save money, space, and our Mother Earth. This recycled hanging garden idea is perfect for those who live in dorms or apartments with open windows or you can just hang your plants on the balcony if you have one. You just need to choose the containers that you want to use (we prefer milk cartons or Pepsi bottles to make eco-friendly planters), cut off the top, poke four or five drainage holes underneath, and attach a length of wire to properly hang your plants so that they will grow as they should. This is great for flowers, herbs or many vegetables and is surprisingly space saving and a really cute way to show off those plants. It doesn’t get more DIY than that! Source
Tiered gardens are great for those who are into architecturally proportional decorations but only have small outdoor spaces. If you only have minimal space for flowers or veggies, you can create a great tiered garden from a number of terracotta planters. Once stacked, you can just plant whatever you want in the planters. You will have space for as many plants as you want depending on how many planters you use. This is a great DIY idea for filling up empty corners on your front yard and bring that proud look on your face whenever someone admires your mini masterpiece of a garden. Source
The idea of having your own micro garden that you can put in your bedside can be a little too difficult for some, but the terrarium is in fact the simplest and easiest DIY planter idea for limited area to make and maintain. Throw in a handful of pebbles, earth, ferns, and moss into a glass bowl and you have yourself a garden for your bedside. Source
