Any space can be transformed into a tranquil sanctuary by incorporating green into it. No matter how big or small your green space is, here are our top tips to make the most of it!

Floor space shouldn't be a constraint

You need to maximize the space on your balcony if you live in an apartment or flat with a small balcony if you want to make the most of your outdoor space. In fact, balcony railings can be utilized as space-saving tools even if they're not as large as the balcony.

You can add some natural color to your urban balcony with potted plants, and they don't take up much space.

Adding greenery to your balcony railings through potted plants gives you the option of bringing in greenery without taking up too much space. There are also lots of balcony-friendly hanging accessories available, such as hanging tables that are perfect for alfresco dining or holding drinks while entertaining friends.

Bringing the outside in

Refreshing your garden is similar to updating your home décor. Regardless of your budget, you can find a variety of garden accessories, from firepits to hanging chairs, sun loungers, weather-resistant cushions, and outdoor rugs.

If you're concerned about any weather damage, you can safely and securely store these items at your local Storage Corner location, so they'll be in pristine condition next summer when the warmer months begin.

Make your walls green

Plants on the walls. Isn't that great? These can be installed professionally or you can follow online guides if you're a DIY enthusiast.

As an alternative, trellises can be attached to walls, and special pots can be purchased to fit them.

Take care of your local park and green areas

Even if you don’t have an outside space at home, you can visit your local parks. You probably can't make any permanent updates here, but it's important to treat these spaces as if they were your own. Taking litter home when the public bins are full or avoiding trampling on flowers and foliage can make a big difference!
