Your Own Green Space
All year round
It’s no secret that gardens are beneficial for a variety of reasons. They can be a form of therapy, a way to save a little time and money, or even just used to decorate a space. All these benefits and more make gardening an increasingly appealing pastime – but what do you do when you live in a condo?
More and more people are living in high rises in the heart of the city. And while it doesn’t immediately seem so, it’s more than possible to grow yourself a little garden in whatever space you have. All you need are a few tips, and you can make the most of a small space, such as your balcony.
There are many reasons to consider starting a balcony garden. They are cost-effective, as once you start growing a few edible plants and vegetables, there will be less spending at the grocery store (even a little goes a long way!). Growing these vegetables will promote a nutrition-focused lifestyle as well.
Furthermore, growing plants and vegetables will assist in caring for the environment, as you are reducing your footprint and “food miles” traveled.
Gardening, even if it’s only caring a few plants, has also been shown to be a form of therapy; it gives one a sense of responsibility and connection with living things and can be a source of stability and self-worth.
With all these reasons, and more, it’s easy to see why urban gardening has been becoming so trendy. Once you’ve decided to begin planting, here are some tips when growing your own balcony garden.
