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 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.
Depending on what you’re using your balcony space for, there are tonnes of ideas you could use to spruce up your balcony space and make it your own. If you’re looking at getting some artificial grass for your balcony to add a little bit of greenery without all the maintenance of natural turf, get in touch with us to see how we can best serve you and your ideas.
