Make a Statement with Succulents
Succulents are probably not the first thing you think of when you think of small space landscaping. However, they make a great ground cover along sidewalks or paths. Plus, they are super low maintenance.
Lose the Grass
If you are trying to make the most of the small space you have and still want to have an outdoor entertainment space, lose the grass and add some rocks and pebbles, sprinkle in some lights and furniture, and have the most perfect spot to relax and entertain.
Go Up Not Out With a Skinny Tree
There are tons of options for trees that you can plant in a tight space. Just be sure that whatever tree you choose works for the zone you live in and that they will not get too large for the spot you are planting them in.
Fence Planters to the Rescue
A common feature in mobile home communities is fencing to separate properties. Why not make the most of those dividers with some beautiful flowers planted inside a cool fence planter or in a recycled pallet attached to the fence.
Build Some Raised Flower Beds
Raised flower beds can be used not only for flowers but also for herbs and vegetable plants. Line them along your property line or along your mobile home for an easy way to create a colorful border.
Maximize the Space with Containers
If space is really tight, try planting your flowers or plants in containers. They fit easily just about anywhere and you can grow just about anything in them!
Flatter Your Entrance
Even in a small yard, you can still add some landscaping around your porch or steps to add curb appeal. Try adding some landscape bricks and a couple of bushes, an easy way to complete the look. But, make sure when planting that you pick plants that won’t get too large for the space.
Although small space landscaping can be a challenge, there are so many awesome ways you can make the area around your mobile home a place you can entertain and be proud of. If you are still looking for landscaping inspiration, check out our Pinterest landscaping board for even more ideas.
