By Gauri Ushma
I have always had the dream of setting up my own garden at my own space, with the most beautiful and desirable plants I want to wake up to, each morning! Yeah, the ideas of house gardening is becoming a dream for most of us , as we are succumbed to definite concrete space with no openings and match box like houses which we are going to survive in the coming decades as well.
However, if you have the love of gardening and know the basic aesthetic of doing it you could set up a really fascinating space in the meagre balcony or the rooftop terrace of yours. All you have to do is to go through the following space set up your own ideas and be your own jolly creative !
1. Picking up the Right Location
Setting up of any kind of garden requires a correct location where a decent amount of light and the ample of water is available for the plants. The golden rule is to feed your plant the right amount of food for it to grow up like a good child of yours!
2. Picking up the right Plants
The amount of care a plant needs is equal to caring a new born baby. However every plant needs different type of nutrient and care. It is advised that do not put plants which require extensive care but there can be plants which can be managed easily in your house garden:
1. ARECA PALM
2. INDIAN BASIL (TULSI)
3. SPIDER PLANT
6. ENGLISH IVY
7. ALOE VERA
8. SNAKE PLANT
9. WEEPING FIG
10. CHINESE EVERGREEN
3. Choosing the right Décor
The most important part of a garden setting is the décor which you set up while choosing the plants. The décor gives the garden a refreshing look, a more cooler view to the garden. The colourful décor makes the garden looks more beautiful and a pretty place to be in.
You could also level the plants at various locations so that the plants are easily accessible to you.
4. Setting up the main artefact
The garden can have a main Artefact which will become the highlight of the garden, it could be the artificial waterfall, angels dancing in the garden and some more small ceramic planters in cute little shapes which can have sebaceous plants as their home place. You could buy these planters online and offline in any good plant shop. Landscaping the garden is of utmost importance where you need to be cautious on how to arrange all the items together to look aesthetically right and acceptable.
I hope this space was beneficial for all of you, and you might now feel motivated enough to start the gardening at your homes !
