You who have a narrow yard must also want to have a green and fresh land.
Want to plant, but do not have a place.
Even for hydroponics it is rather difficult because the tools, materials, and methods are rather difficult.
Well, just make a window garden, let’s go!
Window garden is a plant placed in a box outside the window.
If there is still little space outside the window, it can be used to make the plant box.
Later it can be planted with various types of flowers and non-flower plants.
Before you start making it, pay attention to the tips below.
Selection of window box and garden pot designs
The box for planting outside this window frame can be designed as creatively as possible and from various materials.
The most commonly used are iron wire boxes and wooden boxes.
Whether using a wire box or wooden box, you still have to provide a pot to plant inside.
This pot must be smaller in diameter to fit in the box.
Only, if you use a wire box, the pot will be visible.
Make sure you choose a pot with a beautiful design.
As for the wooden box, you can use ordinary black or orange pots.
Note the number of plants, soil, with the strength of the box structure used.
Make sure the box is strong enough and that it is properly attached to the wall, so it does not fall easily and is damaged.
Customize the box design with your home design.
Houses with Mediterranean or classic design, you should use a wooden box equipped with molding or wood carving.
For Scandinavian minimalist homes, use plain wooden boxes without profiles.
Whereas a vintage industrial style home should use a box from an iron trellis.
Selection of plants for garden windows
Because it is right outside the window, select plants that can withstand heat and direct sunlight.
Succulent types such as cactus and sedum currently being hit can be an alternative.
Choose plants that do not grow tall, but also not too dwarfed.
The type of plant commonly used for hanging plants will also look very attractive, because it can dangle out of the pot box.
The types of plants should be combined, between flower plants, succulent plants, and leaf plants only.
The many types that are combined will add to the beauty of this window garden.
For example, combine petunia, sedum, Taiwan beauty, beans, gabion onions, ferns, with a small philondendron.
Plant care for window garden
It is recommended that you choose a combination of plants with almost the same treatment, especially watering and fertilizing.
The spacing and amount of light must also be considered.
Don’t let anyone get too hot, while the other types get less light because they are covered by other plants.
Routine pruning and cleaning pots should also be done, so that the pot near the window does not appear full of dirt.
Do not make this window garden if the edge of your roof almost coincides with the wall and has no gutters.
It is feared that rain from the roof will damage the plants.
