Spruce up your balcony

During the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns, we were only allowed outside for essentials and exercise. Many people flocked to their local parks or gardens to get their fill of fresh air. Many people living in flats or apartments didn’t have a garden area to tend to or relax in, making them feel more isolated than most. If you were in this situation and you now want to spruce up your balcony area and make it your haven, we have some ideas you can do to create your garden getaway. Artificial grass Artificial grass can be made to fit any area. There’s no mowing, weeding, raking, or trimming to be done, so it’s the perfect option for a small area, low maintenance, green space such as your balcony. Maybe you only want it under a small seating area so it’s cushiony underfoot, or around the edge of your balcony for your potted plants. You could even have half and half; half of your balcony concrete, the other artificial grass, giving you the best of both worlds. With artificial grass being so versatile, you can be as creative as you like! Not just floor space With such a limited floor space on a balcony, you need to use the area around you. Add shelving to your balcony walls for your potted plants or outdoor trinkets. Use hanging rail planters! They come in many different shapes, styles, and colours, so you’re bound to find some that will suit your wants and needs. Use your balcony ceiling! You can screw some eye hooks into your balcony ceiling, and with some metal rods, you can create a cascade of terracotta pots, and the best part is when you water them from the top, you’re saving water as it will drain down to the ones below.

When you have a lovely coating of fresh snow on your lawn be careful not to let it build up too much. When the snow compacts under foot as the day or night goes on and the temperature drops it will turn to ice, which can potentially break the grass fibres.Using salt to melt the snow can also cause drainage issues in your artificial grass as the drainage holes could get clogged and make it harder to remove all the moisture.
