Planning for Your Terrace Garden
A terrace garden needs proper planning before it can be executed. Even if you use it only for a few months of the year or a few times in a day, it would add another room to your house, a room that provides relaxation and joy. Decide clearly how big a garden you want on your terrace, what you want to plant and where and how much space with be left? Consider a few points:
- Choose a good sunny spot because most flowers and vegetables needs at least 4 hours of sunlight in a day.
- What are your personal needs? Do you want the terrace to be used for other purposes too, or will it house only your beautiful garden?
- Create harmony between your lawn and terrace, by making one bigger than the other.
- Use the available space innovatively to get the best out of your terrace garden.
Choosing Plants for the Terrace Garden
Choose plants based on
- The space available and the expected spread of foliage
- The root system of a plant. The plants you choose should have a shallow root system.
- Choose plants which are not delicate and are capable of withstanding windy conditions
- The shape and color of plants should complement the design of your terrace.
- Before selecting a plant consider it’s growing rate and its position in the terrace when it is fully grown
- If there is less sunlight on your terrace, get shade loving plants.
