Do you want to add some courtyard gardening to your Sun City Center real estate for sale? If so, you may choose to do it on your balcony or porch. That way, you can avoid the headaches involved in gardening in a large yard or dealing with touchy landlords or even homeowners’ associations. Whatever the case may be, there is no reason you do not garden in a small space. You can still create a beautiful garden with colorful plants and pots.
When it comes to planning a little garden in a home for sale in Sun City Center, you should begin by deciding what you will be growing. Are you creating space for flowers, veggies, or herbs? Will it be a private space for meditation, or somewhere for you to entertain guests? As soon as you answer these basic questions, you can decide how many chairs to worry about and what type of chairs, as well as where to put furniture.
A helpful technique is to take a chair and place it in various spots throughout your garden. Then sit in it for a minute or so to see how it feels. Move the chair around until you find the most fitting spot. What may look the best doesn’t always feel the most comfortable when you are actually in a garden. Think about it, once your garden is soiled, you certainly won’t want to be digging anything up and moving it.
A technique to keep in mind is that natural containers for plants, such as wood, stone, and clay are better for housing vegetation than plastic. Inside your home, you can use everything from sinks and bathtubs to old shoes to house your vegetation. Fiberglass is ideal for outdoor areas under the hot Florida sun, like balconies.
Always keep in mind the size of your plants and garden. You certainly don’t want to grow big plants on a small balcony and vice versa. As long as everything looks balanced, nothing will look out of place.
Not every type of plant requires the same amount of watering. That is why it is crucial to do a little homework and determine the best ways to treat them. At the same time, using clay pots will make a difference in how much water to give a plant. Does the container have holes or will the vegetation be sitting in still H2O?
Then there is fertilizer. How much fertilizer you should use depends on plants’ containers. The ones that are grown in the ground, as opposed to containers, certainly require more. Just avoid any and all chemical fertilizers that are no good for wildlife. Nobody wants to harm Mother Nature.
The colors that you use in your small home garden should add continuity to the plant life. For example, work with whites, pinks, and blues. Doing so will make the space feel bigger. Bright colors have the opposite effect on gardens. Thankfully, you can follow these basic tricks to create a large and attractive garden in your Sun City Center luxury home for sale.
