How to Build a Balcony Garden

Dallas Tenant Tending his Balcony GardenIf your Dallas rental house has a balcony or patio but, however, not much yard space, you can still satisfy your green thumb and grow your very own garden. A balcony garden can be a good means for renters to take pleasure in the beauty of nature – with or without a yard! With various creative ideas, certain expert tips, and some serious planning, you can modify your balcony or patio into a spot you’ll be happy with from one season to the next.

Choose Containers

One of the effortless approaches to starting a balcony garden is to take a large freestanding container, window planter, or railing planter. Based on how big your balcony is and whether you’re allowed to freely hang containers on the railing, you can start small with a container or two and then grow your garden from there.

Potted Perfection

Another recourse for your balcony garden is to employ some pots in many different sizes. Group pots together to bring about a nice greenery display, put to use plant stands, or line them up along a wall or railing to completely surround yourself with color. For an even more colorful experience, choose pots in a range of different colors or styles to make it more exciting for your space. There’s no bad way to use pots to grow a garden right on your balcony!

Balcony Blooms

If you have a favorite flower or color, consider planting multiples of these plants in several pots or containers on your balcony. For instance, have you, for a very long time, appreciated and dreamed of a rose garden? Quite a lot of roses work well in pots and containers and can produce amazing blooms all season.

Go Vertical

If your balcony is on the small side, look into taking advantage of the vertical space you have to put together a garden oasis. Hanging planters are a nice strategy to add color and greenery at eye level. Or, get a many-tiered plant stand to set up a multi-level display for your garden plants.

Make Watering a Snap

No matter how you arrange your balcony garden, you’ll need a clear plan to keep your plants growing by watering them every day. If your garden has lots of plants, take into consideration purchasing a large watering can or even an easy drip system. This can really help make watering your plants more efficient and more effective.

Add Extra Shade

If you have a sunny balcony, think about adding some additional shade for plants that perhaps wilt in extreme heat. All plants need sunshine to grow, but always remember that too much sun can burn foliage and even kill young plants. Try adding an awesome lattice or sunshade to successfully keep your balcony garden cool on the hottest part of the day.

With a few supplies and some really effective ideas, you can put together an awesome balcony garden that will positively complement your rental house!
