5 Container Gardens We Love From Real Homes
These green corners will leave you inspired to start your own
We've already lost count of how many times we've said it: starting a garden is always a good idea. There are a thousand benefits to growing one—you get pesticide-free food, you get to breathe in fresher air and you get to enjoy a pretty sight each time you look at it. To get you motivated to gather your tools and seedlings, here are a few spaces that might just give you the push:
You don’t always need a patch of land to grow some greens! If you live in the heart of the city and you don’t have a proper backyard, potted plants are the way to go. All you have to do is line them up on any free ledge and you’ve got your own urban garden.
Whether you live in a compact apartment or a sprawling mansion, there’s always room for a garden. The secret? Utilizing dead corners in your home such as the space under the stairs or small balconies to locate a pocket garden. Complete the Zen-inspired look with a water element like an indoor fountain.
Whether we admit it or not, shopping for store-bought herbs may cause you to spend a huge amount of money. Save a few bucks by building a vertical garden in your balcony using old tarpaulins turned into planters. It's best to start with the basics like basil, tarragon and parsley, too.
It doesn't matter if you have two or ten potted plants. If your home doesn't have any room for a container garden, you can stick to having only a few pots. As long as you're able to keep them healthy, you don't have to worry about anything!
Create your own pocket of peace in the middle of the bustling city by transforming your rooftop into an oasis-inspired space. Fresh greenery and wooden elements are sure to take your stress away while shielding you from the noise from down below.
