For people who live in an apartment or small house it is not always possible to have a large garden. However, one can still create a beautiful garden even with little space. Today's ideabook is based on the concept of small gardens which can be adjusted according to the available area. So make sure that you get inspired by these 20 images and create your very own natural area soon.

1. In the corridors

A beautiful narrow garden with pebbles and shrubs can be created in the corridor instantly.

2. With small sources

Similar looking wall mounted planters are also a great way of adding a bit of green way to your house.

3. A green wall

In case you want something more dynamic than creating a green wall is an excellent option.

4. Versatile

Instead of one green wall building two will allow you to create a versatile ambiance.

5. With glass screen

To make an indoor garden look grand you can add glass screens around the area.

6. Recycling furniture

Using old furniture as planters is another great way to add natural elements in the house.

7. On the stairs

Lining your staircase with potted plants will not only mark the area but will also make it look beautiful.

8. A bright garden

You can even create a garden beneath the staircase and make it look bright by using proper light fixtures.

9. In the hall

If you have a wide hallway then creating a stone garden is advisable.

10. Vertical garden

It is not always necessary to create a green wall instead you can build a long and narrow patch of vertical garden.

11. In the kitchen

The best way to add greenery within the kitchen is by using potted plants especially of different herbs.

12. Two in one

Another way to add plants in your kitchen is by using wall mounted planters. Hear the designer has incorporated edible flowers.

13. In the bedroom

The designer of this room has replaced the traditional headboard with a natural focal wall.

14. Corner setting

You can even create a corner garden to relax and enjoy the outdoor view.

15. In the bathroom

A vertical wall can also be incorporated in the bathroom to give a tropical feel.

16. Behind the sink

Another place in the bathroom where you can incorporate plants is behind the sink.

17. In a tiny courtyard
