Perhaps you may have grown up in a family with a backyard garden, or you simply enjoy the idea of creating and maintaining your own green space. Regardless of your history or current hobbies, there are several practical ways to meet your desire for green space in and around your home. Are you ready to incorporate more greens into your daily routine? There are a number of excellent methods for accomplishing this!
Kitchen Garden Plants
Growing edible plants is a win-win situation. Do you want to incorporate some kitchen garden elements into the décor of your home? We’ve already talked about herbs, so let’s get started. Many herbs are relatively simple to grow on a windowsill, and there’s no substitute for using fresh herb cuttings in your favourite dishes — they’re far superior to any dry herb package you could buy at the store!
While herbs are popular kitchen garden alternatives, they are not the only plants that can thrive in your kitchen. You may not want to take on high-maintenance plants such as celery or cauliflower, but you could certainly add some low-maintenance crops such as salad leaves, other leafy greens, certain chilli plants, peas, strawberries, and other pot-friendly crops.
Bringing the Outdoors Inside
Whatever your outdoor space looks like, anyone can come up with some creative ways to bring more of the outdoors inside. Indoor container plants not only add more green to your interior décor scheme; they also provide some genuine health benefits by producing fresh oxygen and assisting in the improvement of the quality of your indoor air. You don’t need a green thumb to grow these plants and keep them healthy.
Indoor Hanging Plants
You don’t have to place your plants on the floor or on a table to reap the benefits of having natural greenery in your home. Another clever idea is to hang them on the wall or from the ceiling! You can incorporate a touch of greenery into almost any room of your home using this inventive technique.
Wall-hanging plants are an effective way to green up your space, and flowering plants add even more aesthetic value in terms of appearance and, in some cases, pleasant odours. Furthermore, they take up little to no space, making them ideal for use in tight quarters. You can go for a more simple approach and use simple ropes for hanging, or you can go for a more elaborate approach.
Mini Succulent Garden
Do you want some great non-edible indoor plant options? Succulents are an excellent choice. Many succulents are simple to grow and maintain, and they can be highly adaptable houseplants for adding to your home’s interior décor.
In reality, most succulents require very little water or sunlight and are among the easiest plants to care for. Succulents also have interesting patterns and aesthetic elements that serve as a wonderful focal point for almost any home interior space. Succulents are difficult to go wrong with!
Indoor-Outdoor Hybrid Garden
A half-and-half garden combines indoor and outdoor plants and may give the impression that your space is larger than it actually is. Choose a location that receives enough natural light to create this type of imaginative (and possibly even colourful) plant space for your home décor – most outside plants, in particular, require the sun’s rays for optimum health and growth.
Sunrooms and enclosed porches can be converted into your own indoor/outdoor hybrid garden setting. Grab a spare bookcase or two, or build some simple shelving, and you’re ready to go!
Balcony Garden Options
Do you have a deck, porch, or a sunny balcony? Then you have a simple solution for creating some outdoor garden space. You do not have to be limited by a lack of easily accessible yard space. Making your own balcony garden can be fun, rewarding, appealing, and even useful. Plants that tolerate direct sunlight and don’t require much watering maintenance are ideal for a full-sun balcony garden.
There are numerous bright and colourful plant and flower options, as well as certain types of vegetables and fruit trees that require little care once planted. Vertical planters, railing planters, trellises, container gardens, and lush living walls are just a few of the innovative planting options available.
Outdoor Garden Space Solutions for Parks, Schools, and Community Organizations Regardless of how much outdoor space you have around your house, there is usually some excellent, available space around the company, school, or charity organisation that you help to lead. While deciding whether to include annual or perennial plants is important, there are other ways to truly set your garden space apart and make it stand out.
