Balcony gardens are a simple, easy and inexpensive way to enhance your balcony. More importantly, they make us believe in intangibles and how everyday sights and greenery can bring so much happiness into our lives. Gardens have always been created outside the home. They lift the mood of the room, brighten it up and provide a large canvas to grow a variety of plants and vegetables. Due to the lack of space, gardens were moved into the home, overlooking the windowsill, in spots where the sun streamed in, and even into bedrooms and guest areas.
Balcony gardens are a whole new trend. The need to hark back to an earlier time, coupled with brick and concrete, pushes many city dwellers to develop them even in the tightest of spaces. Many who live in apartments and want to experiment with their creativity use balcony gardens as their canvas.
Dreaming of a balcony garden is fun, but it can be pretty tiring at first. There are so many designs out there, but what might work on a small balcony might not work on a larger space. Plants intended for window sills may not grow as well when placed on the ground. Start with an idea and plan around it to get a balcony garden that is both beautiful and intelligent and individual to you and your home.
