Your balcony is now almost revamped. Almost, because some elements are still missing, namely plants! You now know the surface area available for your plants: however, make sure that you make use of the corners and edges of your balcony so that the paths remain clear. If your balcony is quite large, add a few potted shrubs (lemon tree, Mexican orange tree, etc.) as well as one or two vegetable garden containers that can accommodate your herbs, fruits and vegetables. To avoid cluttering the floor of your balcony, hanging planters are a great choice: you can fix them to the ceiling (if your balcony has one) or hang them on the balustrade. When choosing plants, also consider the orientation of your outdoor area! As a reminder, rosemary, thyme, lavender, immortelles, geraniums and cacti are the varieties that best tolerate southern exposure. On the contrary, favor bellflowers, begonias, ivy, clematis and boxwood for an east-facing balcony. Finally, the North balconies will easily accommodate ferns, browallias, rhododendron and hostas. Now you're all set with all our tips for balcony design: ready for blue skies, naps and aperitifs in the open air!
