Designing Gardens on a Teeny-Tiny Scale

Here is a miniature garden I created in a small enamel pan.

I have made several of these and they always turn out charming. This one has a tiny patio I created out of cement powder and little stones.

It looks difficult, but it is amazingly easy. I found a kit from Two Green Thumbs Miniature Garden Center. They have everything you need to make patios, walkways…any kind of hard surface.

Here are some photos from the website:




Aren’t they fun?

I love miniature gardens because you really feel as if you can just step right into the garden. That is one of the reasons I created a G-Scale train garden in the middle of my herb garden. Kids and adults get such a kick out of tiny landscapes!

You can find more information about creating miniature gardens at Two Green Thumbs. They even have a newsletter.
