39 Small-Space Garden Innovations

From Pint-Sized Plants to Wall-Mounted Tile Planters

— June 2, 2009 — Eco
If you're trying to plan a small-space garden for this summer, you know that it's no easy task. Even the tiniest condos and shoebox apartments can benefit from this slideshow, however.

We've collected a number of options that are ideal for a small-space garden, from thimble-sized trees to planters that are built into tiles that can go right on your wall.

Implications - Most consumers who live in large, urban environments enjoy gardening but don't have the space or time to deal with large gardens and plants. Taking the art of gardening and shrinking it makes it more practical for the modern-day urban consumer. Businesses should look at making smaller innovations so they are more practical for all consumers.
