If you want to make the most of a small apartment balcony, this article is for you. You dream of having a garden but you can only use a small balcony? Not a problem! Thanks to these tips, you will soon be able to enjoy a little green space.
Tip no.1: Use the vertical space
To create a green space on your balcony, use the vertical space by creating a vegetation wall. Very trendy and unobtrusive, it will give your balcony a pretty touch of greenery. Hence, use the guardrail or the partition wall to hang your pots, jardinieres and other crop pots. However, be aware! Compared to a ground floor garden, your balcony garden will receive light only at a certain angle during the day. Ask for advice from our nurseryman and landscapers about the appropriate plants to grow in your particular environment.
Tip no.2: Create a vegetable patch
Who hasn’t dreamed of growing their own aromatic herbs? Nothing could be easier! Place a few pots on your guardrail or in a beautiful crate, water regularly and watch your thyme, parsley, bay leaves, and other herbs grow.
Tip no.3: Hang your decorative items on the roof
If your balcony has a ceiling or a small roof, hang your decorative items. They will adorn your balcony without taking much space. Alternate green plants, terrarium, photophore, and tinsel for a bohemian chic atmosphere.
Tip no.4: Choose the appropriate furniture
Out go the large tables and cumbersome chairs. To optimize space, opt for folding furniture suitable for the size of your balcony. Very practical and space-saving, stack the stools and place them around the table. If you like to barbecue but you do not have enough space on your balcony, why not use a plancha? Very practical, it connects to an electric outlet and gets you the delicious taste of grilled meat and vegetables.
