Decorating your home according to your style is every person’s dream. It takes time and effort to plan your dream home. Decorating the home goes for a long time.

We tend to get bored with the same plain wall and wish to change it. A little change here and there is all we need.

Nowadays, people are moving into big cities and leaving behind their old comfortable homes.

Having a balcony with a beautiful lush garden is exotic.

A big beautiful garden is not possible in small apartments.

So what we can do is convert our balconies into garden space.

Pretty small plants can light up your home and they are immensely good for the environment too.

I would totally recommend to set up a garden on your balcony. 

Importance Of Gardens

Gardens are an intimate part of the house.

My mother as a child used to tell me that in her back home they used to have a garden with all sorts of pretty flowers and useful plants.

They would grow the tomatoes, lemon, green chilies, and coriander organically in their home.

The idea of having your own garden was so appealing to me as a child and I would often wonder that one day when I will have a house of my own I will do my gardening.

I live in a metropolitan city and an apartment.

A garden in an apartment is not possible so I transformed my balcony into a garden space.

This is how I altered my balcony. There are climbers, plants hanging from the ceiling, and pretty flowers placed on the plant rack.

A plant rack helps in saving the space and a lot of plants can be placed on it.

On the other side of the balcony, I placed a small table and chairs for two. 

My mother and I enjoy our daily morning tea in the balcony garden and nature gives us all forms of relaxation. 

That’s how I enjoy my early mornings. Contemporarily, I have some ideas for you on how to design your balcony garden. It will be trendy, cool, comfortable, and your kind of place.

Do not stop at one plant. Buy and plant as many plants as you can. The garden should not be limited to only some popular pretty flowers. There are thousands of varieties available in the market of plants. Different kinds of flowers placed together look gorgeous no doubt.

Take proper care. To keep the plants in good condition, look after them constantly. Water them regularly, keep them in a space where they get the most sunshine. Use effective fertilizers for the health of the plants and the most important thing is to keep pruning them.

Lay a carpet. Cleaning the floor is very important and the mud and clay make it difficult. Lay down a carpet on the floor of your choice. It makes cleaning easy. 

Go organic. Do not plant only flowers but vegetables too. Use the space efficiently and plant some organic vegetables in the balcony garden. With this, you will also get something worthy out of it. Tomatoes, lemons, herbs, and a lot of other valuable edibles can be planted.

Know the direction. Keep your plants where the sun is. Try to know before planting where the direction of the sunlight is and place the plants facing it.


Now, these were some tips to follow while planting a balcony garden. A balcony garden is a personal space so use it diligently.

A cup of coffee with fresh bewitching flowers is such a good feeling.

Design your balcony garden keeping your budget and space available in mind.

Set your budget before designing. Use recycled products such as plastic bottles. If you have some other things such as an old tier or a big plastic drum use them.

Use climbers and creepers both. Climbers for the wall and creepers for the railing.

Plant aloe vera. Aloe vera is really good for the skin. The organically grown aloe vera is of supreme quality.

Apart from our health, we should take care of our skin too and what better way than using the products from your own grown balcony garden.

We hope our designs and tips were useful for you. Thank you. Good luck!
