Providence Tenant Tending his Balcony GardenIf your Providence rental house has a balcony or patio but sadly not much yard space, you can still appease your green thumb and grow your very own garden. A balcony garden can be an excellent way for renters to have pleasure in the beauty of nature – with or without a yard! With some simple, easy-to-carry-out ideas, quite a few expert tips, and some serious planning, you can devise your balcony or patio to transform into a section you’ll enjoy from one season to the next.

Choose Containers

One of the simplest ways to start a balcony garden is to procure a large freestanding container, window planter, or railing planter. Depending on how massive your balcony is and whether you’re allowed to hang containers on the railing, you can start off with a container or two and then improve your garden from there.

Potted Perfection

Another effective option for your balcony garden is to use various pots in several sizes. Group pots together to produce pleasing greenery displays, make use of plant stands, or line them up along a wall or railing to happily surround yourself with color. For a better and more colorful experience, choose pots in a range of different colors or styles to brighten up your space. There’s absolutely no unsuitable way to use pots to grow a garden right on your balcony!

Balcony Blooms

If you have a favorite flower or color, take into consideration planting multiples of these plants in several pots or containers on your balcony. For example, have you, for a long time, preferred a rose garden? Various sorts of roses work well in pots and containers and can develop lovely blooms all season.

Go Vertical

If your balcony is on the small side, think about using the vertical space you have already to produce a garden oasis. Hanging planters are a perfect technique to add color and greenery at eye level. Or, acquire various tiered plant stands to make a multi-level display for your garden plants.

Make Watering a Snap

Regardless of how you arrange your balcony garden, you’ll need a really good plan to keep your plants growing by watering them always. If your garden has a lot of plants, take into account procuring a large watering can or even a simple, manageable drip system. This can effectively assist to make watering your plants more efficient and more effective.

Add Extra Shade

If you have a sunny balcony, think of adding more shade for plants that may wilt in extreme heat. All plants need sunshine to bloom, but remember, too much sun can burn foliage and even kill young plants. Try adding a nice lattice or sunshade to always keep your balcony garden cool at the hottest part of the day.

With several supplies and certain amazing ideas, you can bring about a pretty balcony garden that will totally and beautifully compliment your rental house!
