Transform your boring Balcony!

These images show what can be done even on the smallest of balconies.

Quick ways to transform your balcony

Decking – With the area being so small you can cheaply add some decking to the area, deck boards can be easily added without any DIY knowledge.

Pots & planters – Pots can add some colour and style to your little jungle space, combined with some tropical plants it can add a touch of luxury, the green plants will take the edge and shape edges off the surrounding area.

Plant Boxes – You don’t have to have all your plants in pots, balcony boxes that clip onto the balcony panels just like a window box, these are great for adding colour and another place to add plants to your space.

Seating – Finally you need somewhere to seat, there is plenty of choice and a lot of small seating options that are ideal for small spaces. A small table and 2 chairs is all you need, or perhaps just a comfy lounger with cushions, decide what will suit your space and how you plan to use it.

    How much room do I give the tree fern trunk to outside of pot, also how much deeper do I go. Is I right , you can give them too much room around the trunk ? Is there a guide to gauge the surrounding of the trunk?

    My home has very poor lighting from my windows and inside my home can you recommend a light that will help me with my succulent plants? I found one on Amazon

    Hi,

    I’ve just purchased and sited 2 Dicksonia Antarctica, both 6’ trunks.
    They look great but would like to somehow ‘train’ the fronds that are approx 8’ in length! They are slightly exposed and the wind and rain is effecting them a little more than I expected. Is there a tried and tested method of retaining their shape in a more erect style? I am contemplating creating a rubber coated wire ‘crown’ to the top of the trunk to provide an anchor point for each frond – I personally think this would work but any advice would be much appreciated. As you can imagine, these weren’t cheap so would like to have them displayed at their best potential. Thanks. Dan

    Succulents, as they don’t like being over watered, what about autumn and winter where nature takes over. They are in well drained soil, also do they need fleece protection because of frosts and freezing snow ?
