Balcony gardens are the ideal way to transform your outside space. In fact, there’s a lot you can do with even a smaller area.
You can create a beautiful and sensory space in every season. Balcony gardening is not without its challenges, but with the right tips and tricks, your balcony garden can actually be fairly low-maintenance.
Optimise the space available with pots and hanging arrangements. You could even revamp your balcony with infinity glass. Infinity glass balustrades will allow you to show off your creation and you can enjoy the views. Here are a few more useful tips for balcony gardeners.
It’s important to consider the practicalities of balcony gardening. Whereas you’ll have less to worry about in terms of messy soil, weeds, and pests, you’ll have to factor in sunlight and watering complications. Before you set up any plants, think about how you’re going to water them and where the water will drain. If you need to rely on a watering can, make sure you’re willing to put the effort in for the number of plants you want. Choose practical plants that will grow in the conditions you have.
Create a sensory space
A balcony is a perfect place to sit outside, so you want it to be a sensory space. Fragrant plants close to the house will provide wonderful scents. Think about lighting options as well. Your balcony garden needs to be visually stimulating even during the evening. Add plenty of colours and textures to make your space as appealing as possible, and it’ll be an ideal place to relax.
Work with the conditions
If your balcony is in the sun, you’re in luck, but you might want to create some shade with tall plants or trellis. If the views from your balcony are not great, then this will solve the problem as well. On the other hand, if you want to see out of your balcony you could maximise your views with infinity glass balustrades.
There’s no reason why you can’t make your balcony garden a haven for wildlife. You’d be surprised how many beautiful birds and insects you can attract with pollen and nectar-rich flowers. You could even DIY your own bird feeder. If you have room, providing a water supply such as a miniature pond or fountain will also welcome wildlife.
Show off your space
Infinity glass makes an incredibly stylish addition to balconies of any size. As well as giving it a sleeker more elegant finish, infinity glass allows much more light to enter your balcony. This is ideal for cultivating plants, flowers, and even vegetables.
Infinity glass balustrades can be custom-made for your balcony and will even add value to your home. It’s the ultimate feature for breaking down barriers with the outside world, delivering a wonderful feeling of space. Bring the outside in this year with infinity glass balustrades.
