Get your outdoor space look better without breaking the bank (and your back) with these easy spring garden ideas!

Having your own outdoor space (even a tiny balcony in a city) can be a luxury since, for city dwellers like us, it’s pretty rare to have an outdoor space where we can bask under the sun, but that doesn’t mean we can’t live our nature-filled dream. You can still achieve the garden of your dreams even if it’s just a small porch.

Whether it’s adding overhead string lights or painting an old shelf for your plant babies, check out these easy spring garden ideas. Perfect for spaces of any size!

Add a Birdhouse

Improve your outdoor space with a cute and quirky birdhouse! Not only are birds excellent neighbors, but they can help pollinate your plants. Plus, they are fun and relaxing to watch. We would exchange our noisy neighbors for birds happily chirping.

Add Glimmer of Light

Let your outdoor space shine by adding large bulbs to completely brighten up the space or some fairy lights if you just want a glimmer of light. This is one of the easiest spring garden ideas to take your or tiny balcony from day to night.

Build an Outdoor Workspace

Change up your scenery and extend WFH into your backyard or balcony. It can certainly decrease stress, enhance creativity, make you happier, and wash away fatigue. Plus, your outdoor space is a pretty good spot for catching up on emails.

Create a Vertical Flower or Herb Garden

If you lack floor space, then creating a vertical flower or herb garden is the best option for you, such as creating a fancy plant wall. It can definitely add beauty to your outdoor space. It’s one of the spring garden ideas you should try!

Create an Outdoor Living Area

Since many of us aren’t allowed to leave the house due to the pandemic, why not spruce up your outdoor space by adding chairs, a table, and some lush plants. It will certainly be your new favorite hangout place!

Grow Your Own Fruits and Veggies

More and more of us are growing plants indoors, and that includes growing vegetables. Raising a vegetable garden is one of the spring garden ideas that offers many benefits, such as it saves money and trips to the grocery store. Plus, it’s much healthier to grow your own food since you are fully aware of the products used in the food. Start your own fruits and veg garden with easy vegetables. Make sure to check the type of sun your place is receiving before starting your own fruits and veg garden.

Grow Your Own Herbs and Spices

It will absolutely take your cooking to the next level! One of the main requirements to grow a successful herb garden is to place your herbs in a spot where they will get at least six hours of sun every day. It’s best to plant your herbs in separate pots so you can properly manage each watering need. Make sure that all pots have proper drainage.

Make a Potting Station

Every garden (indoor or outdoor) needs a potting station to repot plants and store garden tools. Plus, it’s so much easier to work on gardening chores while standing instead of breaking your back to bend over.

Try a Raised Garden

It’s one of the easiest spring garden ideas because all you need is to make a box and fill it with soil. Plus, it keeps your outdoor space tidy. However, if you want to learn the step-by-step process, we suggest checking out Good Housekeeping’s tutorial.

If your outdoor space is feeling a little drab, try these spring garden ideas. Of course, the best part is that you can create your own beautiful outdoor space without spending a fortune.
