This article covers 10 inspiring miniature gardens that you can replicate in your homes. 

1. A simple garden in the patio

The patio of your house can house small pots and seedlings that add color to the region. You can simply remove a couple of tiles from the flooring adding pebbles and soil to it to allow for the growth of seedlings.

2. A curved garden

There is no hard and fast rule that specifies the shape of your garden. So be sure to bend and break the preconceived notions about gardens that you might have! Go for a curved border such as this one with rocks and plants within.

3. A corner garden

A corner garden resting upon the lawn is also a great idea to explore. With palm trees as accompaniment and grass you can make a neat little nook.

4. Different landscapes for the garden

5. An inner garden with a stone base
