Wondering how to make the most of your small balcony / deck / terrace in the city? These pictures of balcony gardens from real apartments will inspire you to get started or seek professional help (details inside).
In this follow up series featuring Xanadu Organic Gardens, there are more landscaping and garden design ideas for your home. Over the weekend, I saw first hand the ease of maintaining an artificial grass lawn. Needless to say, the bed looks lush green throughout the year. This got me thinking into turning a part of our terrace into a tropical retreat lush with grass and Frangipani trees.
Featured below are garden installations of all sizes from from a large one with picket fencing to several green nooks around the house. In an independent house or villa, you will often see a green corner in several levels of the house like a backyard, planter box, sit out, porch.
Front Yard Garden Ideas
Use a picket fence to create visual interest. These are available for ready installation in most garden stores. You can choose o hang geraniums in hanging pots on the fence.
The front yard was laid with Mexican grass and border plants. Trunk slice stepping stones lead you around the garden so you can explore all it’s lovely features.
Small Balcony Garden Ideas
Use a bamboo trellis either in its natural form or painted in white to create a privacy screen. Use flowering flowering creepers from a large terracotta pot for some dash of colour.
The back yard was given a burst of life with a succulent rock garden, pole wall, tropical beds and a Mexican grass lawn to chill out in.
The questions in this post are focused on the services offered by Xanadu. So, if you are looking for someone to set up your garden and are wondering what the timelines and cost look like, read on.
1. Do you assist in maintenance after installation of the gardens?
2. Can you give a generic idea of pricing for let’s say a 9* 12 balcony garden?
3. What are your timelines like for installation?
4. How long have you been around and how many gardens have you installed to date?
Create a Gallery Wall of Colourful Pots
If your balcony receives less light then choose greens that survive in shade like some variety of crotons, African Violets and Pothos. Plant them in colourful planters so they don’t look drab and bring in the colour.
