Just because you live in an apartment or have a small home without a garden, doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful garden.
Here are some tips to take your balcony garden to the next level.
Once you understand that balconies are usually hotter, drier and windier than ground level gardens, you can take this into account when choosing your plants.
Hardy varieties like yuccas, agaves, succulents, native grasses, herbs and vegetables tend to do the best.
Another tip is to use a few large containers instead of lots and lots of small ones, because bigger containers hold more soil which is better for plants.
Also know your balcony’s structural load capacity- you don’t want to overload it with heavy planters.
