A rectangular balcony planter is the perfect solution for a small balcony, whether it be used as a balcony dining area or a place to relax. It does not take up a lot of space because the railing is on one side and the planters are on the other. It is a simple solution that is both functional and attractive, especially when designed by a professional arborist.
The main concern when designing a balcony gardening system is the functionality. It must provide all the seating area needed by the occupant. This could mean seating on a couch, chairs, stools, a swing or even a glider. When planting the plants, remember to consider the layout and proportions of the garden when choosing the plants to plant. For the functionality of the rectangular balcony planter, you will need to determine how much of the balcony is in the mid-range, the middle-level, and the upper level of the structure. In this way, planting the right type of flowers and shrubs will be easier.
To ensure the maximum functionality, the plants and shrubs should be planted at the mid-level of the balcony box. The most common plants to use are climbing roses (longer stems) and Mexican hibiscus. It is a good idea to have a plan in mind when choosing these plants. They can be planted using popular landscape plans such as the Rock and Roll or the Paseo and Columns plans.
It is also important to consider the railings. These should range between six to fifteen inches. It is a good idea to measure the railings before you begin planning for your garden or flower bed. With a standard stone rectangular planter, the railing will be six to fifteen inches wide and between six to ten inches deep.
The size of the planter will depend on how many plants and shrubs you intend to use. If you plan on using several different types, you may need more than one planter. There are several different sizes of planters that are available. Some of them are portable and can be moved from one location to another easily. However, there are other planters that are stationary and can only be used in one location.
The most convenient plant to use in a balcony box is a climber. Climbers are available in many different heights and can easily be moved from one location to another. Some climbers are made of lightweight metal with a waterproof mesh bottom. The best part about a climber is that it is extremely easy to carry and place in the balcony box for easy access.
If your balcony will have a limited amount of space, you will want to choose a planter that is small enough to easily be planted in the allotted area. The perfect type of planter liner to use in a balcony box is a flexible one-piece planter liner. This planter liner fits tightly against the base and provides an almost unlimited amount of space for planting. You can plant two to three stems of each size and height and place them in the balcony.
The best time to plant tomatoes in a balcony is late spring through early summer. The reason for this is that the temperatures are cool and the plant needs the extra warmth to survive. The colors of the tomatoes will change slightly during this time of year due to the changes in sunlight, but they will be worth the change because they taste better. If you do decide to use a color rectangular balcony planter liner, you should place the planting right after the last frost but not before.
