We have all been at that place once or twice, you want everything and you want it now! Just incase you find yourself running into that dilemma with your new apartment, this blog series shows you how to ‘Decking’ Out Your Balcony on a Budget.
Time to add some color to that balcony and one of the easiest ways to do that is with flowers! For quick impact annuals are a good choice, they only last one year but they grow very fast and they bloom all summer long.
I picked up some colorful plastic buckets at the dollar store and drilled a hole in the bottom or each one. Add a layer of rocks or a piece of paper to keep the dirt from draining out through the hole, and fill with planting soil. Add plants, try to aim for a mixture of trailing, filler and tall plants – it will make for a very eye catching display. If budget is a big factor choose pony packs (small start plants that come in packs of 4 or 6) they will fill in quickly!
