SMALL SPACE GARDENS

 

Oaks Landscape Products Do Up The Doorstep Gardens – Don’t let lack of a large garden canvas hold you back. You can get very artistic with a pocket-size garden on the ground or on a balcony. Smaller gardens actually can be more attractive because they can be more intimate and less expensive, a definite advantage these days. The inspired small-space gardens featured this year at Canada Blooms is positive proof that smaller gardens don’t have to skimp on style.

The Do Up the Doorsteps and Back Steps presented by Oaks Landscape Products showcase how you don’t have to sacrifice the bang for a smaller buck. Come see how innovative our designers can be in 150-300 sq. ft.

We have 5 front yard gardens and 4 backyard gardens, see how innovative these garden builders can be in a small space (G16A-D & G34A-E).
