Options
If you are fortunate enough to have an apartment garden, there are lots of interesting and fun things you can do to personalise and brighten it up. You may be limited by location or climate, but there are still options nonetheless. One of the best things about an apartment patio garden is that they are usually easier to maintain than a back yard due to their size and ease of access, so growing plants, herbs, flowers and vegetables are often all possible if you have the sun or shade that is needed. You may prefer the minimalistic approach and only want apartment patio garden furniture and low maintenance trees or shrubs - whatever it is, you will be able to achieve it with the right advice.

Careful Planning
If you are starting from fresh then it may be wise to begin by planning what you would like in your apartment garden and then determine if it is possible. The size of your apartment patio garden will govern what you can include and what may need to be left out. If the area is small in size, it may be best to utilise the walls or rails. If you have a medium sized apartment garden and you want to use pots or containers on the floor, ensure there’s enough room to comfortably manoeuvre around them. Remember they will need maintaining (watering, pruning, etc). If you also plan to have other accessories on your apartment garden such as tables, chairs or loungers then include them in your plan so you know you’ll have enough room. For those with large apartment patio gardens, there are far less restrictions allowing you to go all out!

Personalise the area
There are lots of ways you could personalise your apartment garden. With such a wide variety of plants and flowers, you should be able to find foliage in your favourite colour and with so many suppliers of apartment patio garden furniture; you should also be able to match the décor nicely. Using colours that you have inside your apartment may make the garden look like a natural extension. You may wish to look for plants that attract and encourage wildlife or those that deter animals (through scents). Some people use themes for their apartment garden and populate the area with ornaments or art. Water features will help create a tranquil ambience and a canopy, cover or umbrella will provide shade and shelter. Apartment garden furniture is available in lots of different materials too, so you may choose to purchase only wrought iron, wood or plastic that will match other accessories you already have. If however, you like chaos or crowded spaces, you may wish to throw a bit of everything in to your apartment patio garden and just sit amongst it!

Tips and considerations
It may be a good idea to look at other apartment gardens for inspiration and a head start. Function is as important as aesthetics and you’ll want to be comfortable in your space, so ensure you and any other guests will be able to sit and relax. Any plants will need to be suitable for the climate, so ask at your local garden centre for advice if you don’t know much about plants. Also think about how the plants will be watered and drained away in your apartment garden. You won’t want to be continuously tidying up soil and dirt from the floor. Maintenance, cleaning, storage and security may also be sensible considerations. Will you need electricity installed for lighting and any other features? If so, keep electrical wires away from any water and call on professional advice if you have concerns.
