The garden in the balcony is the first thing that you should do if you have an ugly view, so treat yourselves with something pleasant instantly. The plants and flowers will enhance the small balcony and plus they will get your attention, so you will totally forget about the unpleasant neighborhood. Most of the balcony designs that I have collected for you feature sitting arrangements, so you can drink your morning coffee in the wonderful oasis, or enjoy the hot summer nights right there. When you start decorating the garden, you should take in consideration the position of your apartment i.e. whether it has full sun, partial sun, shade or partial shade cause the type of plants that you are going to plant depend on that. Next, take a look around and see where you can place pot and which of the walls you can use to create a vertical garden. The vertical utilization of the space is the smartest thing to do, because in this way you will have floor space left for other things.
