What Is A Tiny House Garden?

Tiny House Plants can provide a rustic feel that is central to the Tiny House lifestyle. They can be a beautiful addition to the outdoors of a Tiny House or even the inside. They are small enough that they can be placed in just about any room, but there are a few rules that can help you achieve the best experience with your plants.

Here are a few things to consider when choosing which plants to use in your Tiny House Plants:

  • Must Be Small: This means you must consider the mature size, style, and intention of your plant before adding it to your Tiny House Plants. If you want to add a palm tree to your Tiny House Plants, you will have to choose a miniature version of the plant you are adding.
  • Easy to Maintain: You will want plants that are easy to maintain when adding your Tiny House Plants. This means you will want to choose plants that have a low water requirement, or plants that only need to be watered when the soil is dry.
  • No Over Saturation: Be sure that you limit the amount of plants you add to your Tiny House Plants. If you add too many plants to your Tiny House Plants, you will risk over-saturating your soil with nutrients. If your soil is over saturated, you will not be able to properly grow and care for your plants, even the ones you add to your Tiny House Plants.

Why Grow A Small Garden?

If you live in an apartment or a small home, you might not have enough room to grow a full-sized garden. Is there anything you can do to grow some of your own food? There are several options that you might want to consider. Today, we are looking at five different options. Each one of these is guaranteed to create a healthy vegetable garden for your small home.

Container gardens are one of the best options for small homes. If you don’t have any yard space and you love to grow your own vegetables, this is the best option to go with. This is also a great option if you don’t want to spend a lot of money acquiring different seeds and potting soil. There are plenty of plastic containers that you can get for a cheap price. There are also some containers that you can grow your food in, right in the house.

Another great option to grow a vegetable garden for your small home is to use raised beds. Raised beds are beds that have been raised off the ground. If you have a small yard, you can build your own raised garden beds out of wood. This is the perfect choice because it will make it easy for you to walk around and tend to your garden.

Mobile Home Garden Ideas

Nowadays, there are many different types of homes. People are choosing to have mobile homes built on wheels. These mobile house trailers are now known as wheel houses. Many people have opted for this type of home due to many advantages they offer. Some of them are the lower cost, the space they occupy, and also their mobility. For those who are interested in this type of home, it is essential that you first hire the right company. In this way, you will get what you need. Below are some of the things that you should look into when choosing a wheel house building company.

Experience

When searching for the best mobile house and wheel house builders, experience should be your first consideration. You can tell a lot about a company from the experience that it has. Therefore, you should never forget to ask about the experience level of the company that you are considering working with.

Licensing and Insurance

The wheel builder should be licensed. Therefore, it is a necessity that you also ask to see if they have the licenses that are required to offer the services that they do. Also, it is necessary to ask if they have the insurance that is required by law.

How To Build An Indoor Herb Garden

If you’re like most people, growing herbs in your home is easier than growing a vegetable garden. Herbs are great for indoor and outdoor use.

The best herbs for a mini-garden include rosemary, parsley, oregano, thyme, cilantro, and basil. Lavender, dill, sage, and lemon balm are good options if you have a larger indoor or outdoor space.

Herbs grow best when they can get lots of sunlight, but they can also grow in containers.

Herbs can be made into teas, tinctures, or other medicinal goods. Properly dried herbs can be stored effectively for years. Drying herbs incorrectly can cause them to lose their potency.

Take cuttings to replant and limit yourself to only a few different herbs in the beginning.

All herbs should be grown in a well-draining potting mixture. Consider mixing your own potting soil from composted manure, garden soil, potting soil, vermiculite, perlite, and peat moss.

As you learn about your different herbs, you can start experimenting with their flavors and aromas.

These plants need two to three full hours of sunlight every day. Without the right exposure to sunlight, it may seem impossible to have your own crop of homegrown herbs.

Interior Garden Designs And Ideas

Whether you live in a studio apartment or a luxury condo, you can benefit from having a space to grow your own herbs and vegetables. Whether you want fresh basil to season a homemade sauce or a ripe tomato for a salad, it is easy to fill your kitchen with the best tasting produce using a small garden. If you have limited space, fret not. There are small indoor designs that will take up little room but yield big results. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Herb Garden

Herbs don’t need to be that large. Some small arrangements of herbs can fit on a kitchen window sill. If you are going to grow herbs, do yourself a favor by planting them in small pots (3 – 4 inches wide) with holes in the bottom. This will allow the excess moisture to drain away from the roots and prolong the life of the plants. Choosing small varieties of herbs is a good start as well. This will give you a mature plant with a small footprint but will still reap the benefits of a larger herb.

Vertical Garden

Small Patio Garden Ideas

If you live in a flat where you do not have access to a good, large garden, a small patio garden could be just right for you. It could even be placed on a balcony, or in a small area such as a stairwell.

What many gardeners don’t realize is that this type of gardening is as easy as taking care of a houseplant. The secret is to use containers instead of the ground. Just choose a pot and fill it with excellent potting soil and plant your favorite herbs or veggies.

Just keep in mind that the plants will need the right size of pots. If the pot is too small, the roots can’t breathe and the pot will become too heavy for you to move if you have to relocate it.

Other RV Garden Concepts

A regular lawn tractor can easily mow and care for a lawn and yard of up to two hundred or more yards. Though an example of a sturdy lawn machine, some of the same concepts and strategies apply to the small home garden.

As you may be aware, there are several types of small garden mowing equipment. The smaller units of this type are designed to be smaller and more in line with the size of lawn mowing equipment that you may see advertised on the internet and magazines.

RV And Small House Garden Tips

Living in an RV, small house or apartment makes it difficult (if not impossible) to grow a large garden. However, RV and small house gardeners with a green thumb should not get discouraged. You don't have to let the lack of space hold you back from growing your own food.

If you live in a house that is on a small lot, you will need to utilize your space in a smarter way to enjoy growing your own fruits and vegetables. You don't have to give up gardening because of a small garden. You just have to approach it a little differently from a regular homesteader.

At first glance, growing a garden in an RV or small house seems impossible. You really have a tight space to work with. However, it isn't impossible and with a little knowledge and planning, your small space can produce a great bounty. You just have to utilize that space wisely.

First, you need to determine what the space outside of your RV or small house is like. Is the area you have a barren field with no fertile soil or is there a nice, thick layer of topsoil that spreads throughout the area? Take all of the factors into consideration before determining how you are going to utilize your space to grow a garden.

Additionally, you need to determine whether or not you have access to a garden hose or water source. If you do, your job is much easier.
