Making Balcony Gardens Appear Larger.

Making Balcony Gardens Appear Larger.

Welcome to our gardening blog where we'll share some exciting tips and tricks to transform your small balcony garden into a luxurious oasis. In this post, we're going to talk about the best way to make your balcony garden look larger.

If you have a small balcony, you know how challenging it can be to create a lush and inviting garden space. But don't worry, we have the perfect solution for you. One of the secrets lies in choosing the right color containers for your plants.

You may have heard the golden rule of container gardening–– have a thriller, filler, and spiller to create visually stunning container gardens. But another thing you can do to take your garden to the next level. By choosing green pots, you can create an optical illusion that makes your flowers look larger and more abundant.

Green is a color that blends in well with foliage, creating a seamless transition between the container and the plant. When you use green pots, your plants will look like they are part of a larger, more cohesive garden. This can create the illusion that your garden is larger than it really is.

To demonstrate this trick, let's take a look at one of our balcony gardens. In the picture you can see five geraniums 9" baskets. Because the pots are green the effect is truly breathtaking. The green planters make the geraniums look like they are floating in a sea of greenery, creating the impression of a much larger floating garden bed.


If you want to try this technique in your own balcony garden, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  1. Choose the right shade of green. Look for planters that are a shade of green that complements the color of your plants. This will create a harmonious look that blends together seamlessly.
  2. Mix and match. Try different shades of green and different types of containers to create a dynamic, eye-catching display.
  3. If you have limited space, consider using our LedgePlanters or RailScapes. 

By following these simple tips, you can create a balcony garden that looks larger and more luxurious than ever before. Go ahead and give it a try - then email us your pics to We can't wait to see what you come up with!
