People have different choices when they want to build a balcony garden. For some people, they want a simple garden, while for others, they want a perfectly landscaped garden. Here are some tips that could help you decide on what type of garden you want and what you should plant in the garden based on various vital factors.
The first thing you will have to consider is budget. A simple garden will require less capital while maintaining the garden will also be less expensive. You do not want to spend a huge sum of money on your garden and then watch the garden die away because you do not have enough to maintain it. If your budget is low or your earnings are not high enough, it is important that you opt for a simple garden. A simple garden can still look very beautiful and elegant with proper planning in place. On the other hand, an expensive and complicated garden could also look very rough if some factors are not properly taken care of. It is not the cost or how complicated the garden looks, but it does take proper planning and effective garden maintenance.
Your space goes a long way to determine how big or small your garden will be. Irrespective of the size of your space, it is possible to convert it into a productive green space. You can also take advantage of hanging plants by placing them on vertical spaces if your space is particularly small. With this, you will be able to use every available space as opposed to just using the ground spaces, which will contain very few plants and then the upper spaces are blank. Try to utilise every available space by creating trellises and piling up pots.
