Beds of flowers are a great way to brighten up your urban garden with some colour. The majority of flowers will thrive when grown on a sunny balcony. They look especially pretty on a balcony in a hanging basket or in flowers beds. To give you some inspiration, here are just a few types of flowers that you could choose.
As well as flowers, you might also want some greenery in your urban garden which you can create either with potted plants or even small fruit trees. Luckily with sunny spaces, the sky is pretty much the limit, and most plants will thrive in this environment. A few plants that you can try to add some greenery to your urban garden include:
Just because your urban garden is on the shady side, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a range of different flowers in your outdoor space. After all, a garden isn’t complete without an array of flowers! Here are a few different species of flower that thrive in shady spaces and will add some colour to your garden and hopefully attract some wildlife too!
A failsafe way to add some greenery to your shaded garden is to take your houseplants outdoors. Most houseplants grow happily in the shade and don’t require too much maintenance.
With a large urban garden whether that’s on a balcony or indoors, you have the space to work outwards which you can do with large flowerbeds and even garden furniture whether that’s an outdoor dining area or storage. To personalise the space, you could try adding a unique rug or a string of fairylights to make the space yours. Wicker chairs and comfy beanbags are also a great way to turn your urban garden into a social space where you can host barbeques in the summer and enjoy a drink in the evening.
With limited space, you’re going to want to work upwards instead of outwards when designing your urban garden. Working upwards will also open up the space and create the illusion of a larger area. Work upwards with hanging baskets for the walls and overhanging baskets for the edge of your balcony. Climbing plants will also help you to accentuate the height of your balcony, taking focus off the width. Wall shelves can be very effective and great for storage. Paint the shelves a bright colour to add some personality to your urban garden. Customise the space with decorated plant pots, candles and fairy lights.
