No yard? No problem! You don't need a spacious yard for a gorgeous garden. If you don't have a yard but you're lucky enough to have a balcony or patio, there are plenty of ways to indulge your green thumb with your small outdoor space. Here are a few of our favorite ways to create a beautiful balcony garden.
Pick A Purpose. Do you want your balcony to be a hangout spot? Or are you looking for a place to cultivate your own kitchen garden? Decide how you want to use your balcony and plant accordingly. Fill railing planters with pleasant-smelling flowers like lavender for a chill hangout zone, or fill herb containers with herbs and veggies for your own mini kitchen garden.
A Cohesive Color Scheme. With a small space like a balcony, you want to avoid too many clashing colors or else things will start to look too busy. Pick three main colors you want to work with and choose planters, accessories, and flowers in these hues. Go crazy on the green, though — green is practically a neutral in a garden!
Set Your Sights Higher. If you don't have a ton of surface area to work with, just look up. Hanging baskets are a great way to take advantage of vertical space. Need a suggestion for a good plant to hang up? Sweet potato vines are the super star of the hanging basket world, with bright cascading foliage and easy upkeep.
Bag It Up. Railing planters are an obvious choice for balcony gardening, but if you want to switch things up a little consider using BloemBagz Rail Planters. These versatile planters fit any rail and can be secured easily. Plus, they're super easy to fold up and pack away if you ever move apartments!
