Tips to make more space in your garden

Gardens are not only beautiful spaces, but they also offer various health benefits and provide space to enjoy your hobbies. Spending time outdoors has mood-boosting benefits, provides an opportunity to grow your own veggie garden and play catch with the dog. Countless memories are created in the garden – as long as you have the space.

Making space in the garden can be a challenge, especially if the area is small. If this is you, then you’ll want to read below where we outline a few ways that you can create more space in your garden. 

Grow plants vertically

Growing plants vertically is an effective way to make more space. Get creative and explore the many ways to use vertical space such as growing vines on wire or lattice frames. You can also use trellises or fences for climbing varieties and create a living wall with ivy and other trailing plants. Vertical gardens are not only beautiful to look at, but they also provide privacy in the garden.

Use pots and containers

If you don’t have a lot of space for a traditional garden, consider using pots and containers instead. There are many different types of containers available, so you can choose one that best fits your needs. Container gardens are great for small spaces and the plants can be placed on patios, balconies, or even indoors.

Be strategic with your layout

Use a creative layout to make a small garden seem larger. For example, you can create a circulating space and conceal parts of the garden with larger plants. You can also use visual tricks such as creating the illusion of space by using large paving.

Dedicate a space to sit

Creating a dedicated place to sit makes sure that you always have a seat to enjoy the benefits of your garden. When planning your outdoor layout, make sure that you include a bench or garden furniture. We also recommend that you surround this space with beautiful, fragranced plants.

Declutter the garden

The garden is often seen as a place to relax and enjoy nature, but it can also be a space for storage. If you’re struggling to find enough space in your garden, then you may need to spend some time decluttering. One of the easiest ways to make more space is to remove unnecessary items such as old furniture or tools that you no longer use. You can also sell or donate these items to create more space in your garden.

If you’re not ready to part with your belongings just yet, then you can rent a safe and secure storage unit. Located in Manchester Central, Middleton and Hale & Wilmslow, our Storage World facilities offer an affordable and convenient storage solution.

Contact our friendly and helpful team online and find out more about our flexible terms, different size units and additional services available. With summer around the corner, there’s never been a better time to declutter the garden!

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
