Veggie gardens for apartment owners


The Australian population is expected to hit 70 million in the next hundred years, so it's no surprise that developers are starting to consider more ways to build up rather than out.

Although it's safe to say our lives are likely to become more compact, it doesn't mean we must do away with staples of the 'Aussie dream', including a lush home garden.

There are several space and time-saving tricks such as the following you can use to get the most out of your apartment garden.

Consider your space from floor to ceiling

Instead of investing in a fresh coat of paint, why not consider a vertical garden to liven up a feature wall?

Vertical gardens not only make an area feel fresher and more vibrant, they are pragmatic approach to saving space in smaller apartments.

Create a natural screen

Living in a crowded apartment building can sometimes lack a feeling of privacy, however there are a few clever gardening tricks that can help turn your unit into an oasis.

Start with a natural screen to section off part or all of the balcony railings as these solutions are low maintenance, visually stunning and create a greater sense of security.

Natural screens of herbs and veggies are also impressive additions to entertaining. Your guests are sure to love a salad that is both harvested and made before their eyes.
