The good weather has arrived, you live in the city and it seems that all the flowers and plants on terraces, florists, and balconies strut their stuff when you walk past them. Well, it’s time to stand up to them and show them that they can look even better on your balcony. Choose a day (today? or tomorrow?) and fill your outdoor space with life and color. Take advantage of it and enjoy your mini private urban garden. Follow these simple guidelines and transform them!
DECORATE IT ONLY WITH PLANTS
If your balcony is very small and you don’t use it much, turn it into an orchard. You can enjoy all its beauty from inside your home. Place different plants at various heights to get some privacy. The plants will also manage to regulate the temperature outside and will provide freshness. We love the idea!
You do not have to opt for some plants or others to decorate your balcony. You can put some mini fruit trees, along with some small bushy plants and some aromatic ones to decorate the table. In the variety is the spice!
If you want to get the most out of your balcony, place a comfortable sofa that adapts to the space. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up the charm of plants. Add some small planters next to the railing or hanging from it to get a little more privacy. Another idea? Cover the ground with artificial grass and it will seem like you are in the field.
CHOOSE PLANTS THAT RESIST THE WEATHER
Depending on where your house is and the sun that your balcony receives, you will have to choose one species or another to decorate it. Find out which are the plants that resist the climate where you live well: the plants will be much more grateful and will not need as much care. For example, hydrangeas are a great option in coastal climates, where average temperatures and rain will make their flowers turn blue (this happens due to the acidity of the water).
