15 Chic Essentials To Help You Create That Perfect Balcony Garden

With ‘Work From Home‘ being the new norm, revamping your home corners to serve as the perfect work spots could be a great idea. Greenery works wonders for the mind, and a balcony garden is a good way to let out tension and stress and get you through the day. In the urban space, where greenery is tough to come across, having your own little comfort spot works well for those mid-week blues. Here is everything you need to set up your very own balcony garden.

1. Metal Railing Planters

Available in different sizes, these planters are versatile in the number of plants they can accommodate. The rain is no hindrance to these as they come in weatherproof patterns and designs and are durable due to their material. A common annoyance with planters is that they are prone to collect stagnant water, but this won’t be the case with this one as it comes with holes drilled into the bottom that lets the water drain out. The large planter measures 12 cm x 5 cm and can accommodate several plants if you have quite the green fingers.
