If you live in a apartment it does not mean you have to be out of the joy of admiring a green corner full of colored flowers when you drink your coffee. Nature has the incredible ability to grow harmoniously wherever it finds a loving environment, and in your balcony you can create a real paradise of heaven with countless plants and flowers. We’ll show you how you can do that.
How to make more room for pots
To make a real corner of heaven you need space, but the balconies of apartments are not very attractive from this point of view. No problem, however, you can make your own place! Make a plasterboard structure that reaches up to the ceiling and put pots for shelves. You can plant flowers from bottom to top and enjoy the effect of a wall full of flowers.
More greenery with hanging plants
Hanging plants are not only for large gardens, you can also use them on your balcony and have the great advantage of completely turning your apartment into a little garden. Carnation is another option of absolutely beautiful climbing plants that will fill your balcony with their beauty.
If you have caught your attention on a hanging plant, do not forget to have a growing support available. It’s not hard to make one of wood, or just place the plant on a sill and let it grow down all over the wall.
Decorate the balustrade of the balcony with flower-filled suspended pots that will give you a million views. If you have an open balcony, it would be a pity not to decorate the balustrade with colorful and fragrant flowers. It is an ideal place to place some pots.
Pay attention to the plant varieties you put in these pots, they must also withstand very low temperatures.
Extend with the outdoor planters
The same principle of hanging pots can be applied to the outside of the balcony. You will find shelves in the grocery stores to place the planters outside the balcony so you can enjoy them without even taking a square centimeter of the balcony.
Put your creativity to work
Any old object in your home can turn into a flowerbed, just with a little imagination! I was talking about hanging plants above, an interesting idea would be to use an old wooden chair as a support for their growing stems.
And an old suitcase can easily be turned into a pot. The obsolete bike you have not used for years? Put it in the balcony and adorn it with flower pots, it will prove to be a great support for an unusual garden. The more original the idea is, the more spectacular will be the outcome.
