Designing Your Ultimate Garden

To increase production and health of plants, take some time in the spring to design your ultimate balcony garden.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

  •  Use different combinations of container and plant sizes to create visual interest.
  • Reduce visual clutter by choosing containers that blend in with the surroundings. Or simply paint your containers to match.
  • Layer plants, with taller plants in the back and smaller ones in the front.
  • Try vertical garden techniques. Grow up instead of out!
  • Hanging baskets and trellises can be used to maximize space.
  • If your building allows it, shelves, hooks, brackets and wall-mounted urns are great balcony space savers.
