How to Build a Balcony Garden

Hot Springs Village Tenant Tending his Balcony GardenIf your Hot Springs Village rental house has a balcony or patio but not much yard space, you can still satisfy your green thumb and grow your very own garden. A balcony garden can be a great way for renters to appreciate nature – with or without a yard! Using a few tips and tricks, you can transform your balcony and patio into a surely enjoyable space for everyone!

Choose Containers

One of the easiest ways to start a balcony garden is to get a large freestanding container, window planter, or railing planter. You can start your garden by simply hanging containers on the railing of your balcony! It might be simple, but it can be your starting point.

Potted Perfection

An alternate route for your balcony garden is to use multiple pots in various sizes. Group pots together to create pleasant greenery displays, use plant stands, or line them up along a wall or railing to surround yourself with color. A more colorful garden experience means a variety of colors and styles in pots. It’s really up to you as to how you want to use your pots for your balcony garden.

Balcony Blooms

Do you have a favorite flower or color? If so, you can place those plants in different pots or containers on your balcony. Maybe something along the lines of a rose garden? Multiple varieties of roses work well in pots and containers and can produce gorgeous blooms all season long.

Go Vertical

Don’t worry if your balcony is small — you can make use of your vertical space by making a garden oasis! Hanging planters are a terrific way to add color and greenery at eye level. Or, invest in some tiered plant stands to create a multi-level display for your garden plants.

Make Watering a Snap

How you prepare your balcony garden is important, but you’ll need a good plan to keep your plants growing by watering them regularly. If your garden has many plants, a large watering can or even a simple drip system could definitely be a good investment. This guarantees more efficiency and effectiveness when watering your plants.

Add Extra Shade

If yours is a sunny balcony, you should add extra shade for plants that wilt under extreme heat. All plants need sunshine to thrive, but too much sun can burn foliage and even kill young plants. Think of adding a lattice or sunshade to keep your balcony garden cool during the hottest part of the day.

Using a few supplies to go along with your great ideas, you can bring that balcony garden to life in your rental house.
