What are the pros and cons of a small garden?
- Equipment – When your garden is more miniature, you don’t need massive or expensive tools. Typical hand tools should work perfectly fine for most small gardens.
- Fill space – If you have small, unused space around your yard, a small garden would be great for filling spaces like this. A small garden can spruce up small nooks and crannies.
- Work – A small garden requires less work than a more extensive garden, but that does not mean it is no work. Small gardens still require maintenance and care to reach their full potential.
- Noticeable crop loss – Because the garden is minor, diminished growth becomes more apparent. Covering up or hiding may be much more challenging when crop loss occurs.
