Balcony garden ideas can do wonders for the décor in your apartment. A balcony is an extension of your apartment and can become a favorite place for the family to relax if it’s decorated well. Balcony garden ideas can help transform your balcony from a store house to a paradise of greenery and beauty.
You can transform even a small balcony into an oasis by using all the available space including the railings, floor, and walls of the balcony. Here are three great ideas:
1. Hanging Plants
By hanging plants near the balcony railing, you can create a green curtain that can provide you with much required privacy and shade. Hanging plants that are perfect for spring include pansies, daffodils and tulips.
2. Flower Box Holders
You can hang railing flower box holders on the inner edge of your balcony railing if hanging plants are not the right option for your balcony or you. Containers can also be placed on the balcony floor or on shelves on the walls of your balcony. Plants such as cherry tomatoes, carrots, onions and bell peppers can provide you with an herb and vegetable garden. Flowering plants such as azaleas can also add color to your balcony.
Bamboo can be used to fence off the seating area of your balcony from the plants. Shoots of bamboo in pots can make a good contrast to the green plants and flowers in your balcony garden. It will give the space an elegant look.
Wind chimes hung from the ceiling or the door jamb can provide music and add to the peaceful ambiance of your balcony. A water fountain in a corner of the balcony can also be soothing to the ears and a good accessory for the balcony.
