Balconies present an excellent opportunity for homeowners to enjoy open space and greenery. Unfortunately, most balconies are underutilised. They are used either as storage areas or a combination of storage and a garden. Either way, it is necessary to plan the space and design it accordingly. This balcony has been designed and landscaped by the interior landscape designers of Interioforest Plantscaping. Everything about this space is vibrant, refreshing and pleasing. The best part of this design is that it successfully makes the compact space look perfect and green.
The most crucial part of green balconies is the effective use of space. Since the homeowner is an avid gardener with a keen interest in plants, the designers have used creativity to make the balcony look perfect. The wall was the least attractive feature of the apartment. To cover it up, the designers have used a beautiful vertical garden.
The square-shaped wood deck tiles on the balcony are excellent as they add an earthy and rustic touch to the place. The designers have used their creativity to add a simple yet impressive touch to the garden with the white stones and the unique planters, which lend a homely feel to the area. The planters look homemade and quite rustic. The round planter is surrounded by upcycled plastic containers, which have been decorated charmingly with some ingenuity.
The vertical garden features a self-watering system with a timer which makes maintenance easy. The watering system works to keep the plants healthy and green for a long time. Plants that flourish in semi-shade have been chosen for the vertical wall garden. The balcony has also been given a green grassy floor, using artificial grass, which adds to the charm of the place. Palms are a perfect way to add height and beauty to any area. The colours on the wall complement the green plants beautifully.
The massive grill has been used effectively as a planter holder. The bright planters are lovely as they add a burst of colour to the balcony. The combination of colours makes a beautiful impression while the choice of plants is varied and exciting. The colours of the flowers complement the green of the non-flowering plants. Overall, it is a great place to relax and enjoy a hot cup of tea or coffee.
The balcony has been protected with netting that stretches from top to bottom. While it makes the area safe, it also protects the plants from unwanted visitors such as pigeons that could damage them. Large planters have been placed on the floor to make maintenance easy and effortless. The taller plants have been added to the corners to ensure that the view isn’t obstructed. The balcony is sunny, beautiful and green, presenting all the features required to make it the perfect space to relax.
