The best thing a plant lover living in high-rise buildings and condos is a balcony garden. A balcony garden can be an excellent retreat for urban gardeners. Fortunately, you do not have to be a master gardener to have a nice balcony garden in your apartment. All it takes is:
- Selection of right kind of plants – evergreen plants that can survive outdoor climate throughout the year and do not require regular care and pruning
- Selection of right kind of containers – lightweight containers with proper drainage (in a variety of shapes and styles) that can be adjusted to your limited space either placed on the floor, hung freely or fixed in the wall.
- Aesthetic sense – create focal points and do some experiments and DIY projects to add colors and fun to your balcony garden
