How to decorate a small winter garden?

First of all, you need to keep in mind that there is no ideal place to install your small conservatory. And this opens up a range of options for locations that can be used to set up this garden, such as the place under the stairs or the bathroom. However, although there is no rule regarding this, most residential projects feature a garden in a place for coexistence, such as the living room, as this environment also contributes to the room’s decoration.

Also, your garden can be set up in different ways. You can set up a flower bed where the plants are directly on the ground, use potted plants and even set up a suspended or vertical garden, with pots installed on the wall. Depending on the space, you can also install other decorative elements, such as wooden benches, a swing, a hammock and a water fountain. And don’t forget the stones, pebbles, gravel or wooden deck, which can be used on the floor and help to absorb moisture.
