They are able to do this because they have a wide square footage in their land area; they also started it right from the blueprint of a house. It is a different case with apartments though; having an apartment garden can be quite a challenge because of the space and apartment building construction limitations.

However, there are some apartments that have patios, balconies or terraces where you can make use of as your mini garden. All you need are pots, bins or even tin cans to have a container garden.
