how can i turn my terrace into a garden?

Posted under Home gardening advice | No Comment

me and my fiancee found our dream home..the roof of an apartment building which has a very big balcony/terrace..there no one can see you..you can sunbath,sleep there..etc.. but we want to turn it to a garden..where can i get advice about it? what kind of little trees can i grow there? where will we grow them? in big flowerpots or make a fake ground..maybe fake chimneys? i searched the internet but couldn't find anything useful…

You could place containers around the whole perimeter (wooden ones for example). Paint when the color you like. You would need to put the trees in a large pot. You could also add trellises in some of the containers around the perimeter and plant some seed to grow vines. A little too late now to begin growing seed for vines, but you could start preparing the soil now. I am so jealous….Fill those containers with anything you really like. Right now, you could put mums or violas in them. I would plant some hardy greenery in the back of the containers as a background. Then place the plants in the front. They will complement each other. You can plant the evergreen plants now. Just keep them trimmed the way you desire. Some suggestions for spring: Elephant ears, clematis vines, jasmine vines, moonflower vines. Buddilea plants to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Moss rose (portaluca) for the sunny spots. Bloom beautiful flowers every day and grow best if not watered too much . Mexican Heather is another fast growing plant that will spread and make small purple flowers. People love to grow petunias as well. They come in all colors. Gosh, so many ideas. I would place the trees between the surrounding wooden containers that surround the perimeter of your whole terrace just for beauty and also privacy.

You are so lucky. Good luck and have fun.

    You will have to do container gardening. I think it would be nice to have a trellis like area too. You can set the posts in cement in buckets then have ivy and flowers trained to grow up the trellis…would make a beautiful untraditional garden
