I would try using all different sized containers and spreading them around. Another thing is hanging them from a fence or wall in planters. You can even look up on line and learn how to hang plants upside down, so you can grow vine plants like watermelon this way and limit the ground cover. You can grow tomatoes upside down, peppers, etc. This helps with limited space.
