Choose plants with similar watering and light requirements.

Choose a mixture of tall and short plants that have different textures and can be pruned easily.

Miniature violets or roses add great color.

5. Landscaping and Accessories

Cover soil with moss, bark, pebbles, or sand for paths and streams.

This is where the magic happens. Start with the big stuff first then work around that.

Look for some things outside that inspire you like a gravel path or acorn tops as stepping stones.

6. Have fun with it!
