Spring Gardening Ideas for Tenants

As a tenant, it is highly likely you won’t be able to landscape the garden on your property. However, there are still so many ways you can add little personal touches to your property to help enjoy the bountiful beauties that spring has to offer.

How to Quickly Spruce Up Your Garden This Spring

Whether you rent an apartment or house, there are a few inexpensive ways you can quickly and easily transform the garden of your home this spring. Follow any or all these tips to help add a personal touch to your outside space.

Potted Herb Garden

Whether you have a balcony or garden, you can create your very own sensory extravaganza by using a simple array of potted herbs. Potting plants is a great way to start off your spring. You can grow herbs, flowers, or plants with ease; not only will they look and smell great, but you can also take them with you if you move.

The Top Ten Herbs that give off an amazing scent and are super-easy to grow are:

  • Rosemary
  • Ginger
  • Thyme
  • Peppermint
  • Lavender
  • Geranium
  • Basil
  • Pineapple Sage
  • Curry Plant
  • Lemon Balm  

Watering is Essential

If you haven’t already purchased a watering can, this is one investment your garden will thank you for. Depending on the type of property you rent, you may or may not have access to a hose; this is where purchasing a nicely sized watering can is going to really make a difference. If you are planting new plants or potting new herbs, then you need to make sure they get plenty of water to help them settle into their new soil.

Indoor Plants

Indoor plants are a proven way to help improve the quality of the air in your home. Not only this, but they can also add color and life to any space as well. There are many indoor plants that are easy to maintain and are perfectly suited to a home environment such as:

  • Snake Plant
  • Rubber Plant
  • Money Tree
  • Aloe Vera
  • Spider Plant
  • Ficus
  • Peace Lily
  • Boston Fern
  • Bamboo Palm
  • Kalanchoe

Borders and Boundaries

The edges of your garden provide the perfect opportunity for you to add color and vivacity to an otherwise plain piece of space. You can easily add some cedar boards to the fence and mount some climbing or vertical gardening pockets to add depth and coverage to an otherwise dull part of the lawn.

Fertilizer and Food

Whether you choose to use your pots to grow herbs, flowers, or even vegetables, you can give them a real boost by adding a little fertilizer or food once they have had the chance to get properly bedded in. Adding in these essential nutrients will help your plants to thrive and grow into healthy, long-lasting greenery for your garden that should last well beyond springtime.

These gardening tips for tenants are all quick and easy to implement and won’t cost much money to implement or maintain throughout springtime and beyond.
