For a spectacular balcony garden design you need to keep to the basic elements which apply to every landscape design – to arrange the available space in the best possible way. Basically there are two options – you can use boxes or pots and hang them on the wall or on the railings, or you can plant the entire wall / floor. The first option is extremely popular as it offers some flexibility, while the second one requires some experience in gardening. Choosing the plants should be in accordance with the balcony size. There are some flowers / plants that require more space. Evergreen plants will look beautiful even in winter, while seasonal flowers will decorate the balcony only in during a particular season.
