Balcony Planters – Know What’s Better
We all want a balcony filled with planters and all kinds of plant life forms arising from them, beautifying our space and livening it up in the real sense of the word. However, not everyone is ready and fit for such projects because they have the word maintenance written all over, in caps-lock, that is.
Luckily, times are changing and manufacturers have heard our plea – space and time saving balcony planters are what we need for those projects to succeed!
There are three main aspects that contribute to getting the best out of the balcony planters: Watering method, size and the position.
Believe it or not, for many of us the most tiring aspect of gardening is the maintenance part that often imposes itself as a reason why one would resist a gardening project. If you are perplexed by this and don’t find yourself within the description, good for you and you have every right to call the rest of us lazy, but we are those that have been waiting on the self-watering miracle invention. Thankfully, it has arrived! Now those that get caught up in the rat race quite too often and for quite too long and have neglected to take care of their plants, can enjoy the simplicity and practicality of spending just one day for filling the self watering planter and let it do its job from that moment on. Of course, you’ll need to refill it every now and then and you’ll have the option to vividly monitor the level of water at any given time.
The size of your different balcony planters largely depends on what you plan to plant and grow in them. If you are opting mostly for flowers, you can choose whichever size you like, no big rules implied, but if you want to see some fruit and veggies becoming a part of your balcony reality, you’ll need to learn some basic pot gardening rules. Veggies and fruit, even more than flowers, require regular and steady flow of water and you won’t be able to see them flourish if you fail to keep up with the required regime. Apart from size, style is also a present aspect of balcony gardening. Many people choose to opt for white color and rectangular shape because that’s the winning combination which can certainly fit many kinds of settings. It also gives you a clear view of the planters and a neat line up.
This aspect of balcony planters has also seen an improvement. Instead of thinking about which shape or position would save us the most space, now we can simply get raised planters and see the space transform in a matter of seconds. This occurs mainly because now the plants are more visible, therefore appear more beautiful, and secondly because now you have extra space below the planter and when it comes to balconies, this is a very big plus. Such choice of balcony planters is both more aesthetically pleasing and a lot more functional. They are also ideal for older people that have trouble bending. This way a person can trim and give final touch to the neat appearance of the plants without having to rest every five minutes or so.
With the new and improved methods of balcony gardening, as we mentioned before, more and more people can now finally decide to give it a try. All of the obstacles that were once in the way: the demanding watering routine, the low lying position of the planters and the feeling of overcrowding space can now be properly addressed.
