    Hi Lee,
    Container type gardens will be your friend. I personally would use rectangular boxes - either DIY made or even purchased green plastic ones. You could plant some kind of trailing plants, like ivy or sweet potato vines. to drape over the edges and give the mini-gardens a lush look. I'd also fill them with colorful flowers if you want a colorful look. You could also slip some veggie plants into some if you want. I don't know how much room you have, but another addition, could be potted trees in corners to give some height. I hope this starts your "brain wheels" turning. Check out your local nurseries to see what is available in your area. Wishing you the best.

    When you have limited square footage, it's important to think in terms of vertical space. You can tier containers using shelves, plant stands, hangers and there are even plant walls that can be designed using either pre-made products or upcycling materials to create your own.

    Container gardening. Larger pots can contain plants for eating like peppers, spinach, romaine lettuce, onions and garlic plus. Flowers in a pot, a shrub ( boxwood, small varieties of conifers, etc.), herbs and plant what you buy at the store like rosemary, cilantro, parsley, oregano, thyme, chives (onion & garlic) plus so many others. Easy to do so have fun gardening.

    I was blessed by having a realtor who gardened! He gave me a variety of plants to place around my patio including many shade-loving perenials
