The green cover around you is contently reducing, and this is apparent even more in cramped cities. City living means, for the most part, small apartments or houses with almost no outdoor space for gardens. How can you utilize the small spaces in and around your home, especially in cities, to grow yourself a beautiful garden?
- Stacking and vertical gardens: If you have empty walls, balconies, or windows, you can fix wooden planks or metal grills in levels to build a vertical garden. You can stack large and small planters vertically, creating a relatively large garden in a tiny space. Ensure that the grills or planks you get a strong and are properly fixed, as planters can get quite heavy as the plants grow.
- Lattices with climbers: If you have a large balcony or window that faces a road and you want to increase the privacy of your living area, you can use greenery to achieve this. Get some climbers and plant them around the window in earthen pots or planters. Then, install a lattice made of metal, wood, bamboo, or any other material and guide your climbers onto the lattice. Within a few weeks to a few months, you will have a green curtain providing you privacy and enhancing the beauty and serenity of your living space.
- Hanging planters: If you have a fences or railing that run the length of your balcony or house, use this empty space to build your garden. You can get hanging planters and plant leafy as well as flowering plants in them and hag them on the fencing or railing. This can create a nice cozy space for you, shut out noise, and cool down your house.
- Indoor kitchen planters: You can build yourself a nice little kitchen garden by planting herbs and vegetable plants near your kitchen windows. You can keep the small plants that need minimal sun on the window sill inside, and install a planks or grill right outside the window for larger plants that need a lot of sunlight and air. You will have fresh herbs anytime you want to cook, and fresh veggies every now and then from your own garden.
Having plants around your living space can be soothing and comforting, but it can be tricky to manage this in city houses. Use these easy design hacks to ensure you get the garden you want in and around your home, no matter how small and limited the space available.
