Gardens on a grand scale can be gorgeous, to be sure, but they are not without their drawbacks. They can be pricey to install and labor-intensive to maintain, and they need huge amounts of water to stay green. A small garden, on the other hand, can be just as charming and rewarding to spend time in, but with far less effort. If you have a tiny garden to call your own, here are 10 reasons to count your blessings.

If you live in an urban area and are lucky enough to have a bit of outdoor space to call your own, it makes sense to make the most of it. Treat yourself to some garden therapy by outfitting your urban outdoor space with as much greenery as you can fit. Add grass or a cushy ground cover, potted plants and even a vertical garden or climbing plants on the fence.
