Looking for balcony ideas to transform your space? Balcony gardens are in some ways the perfect outdoor spaces. Convenient, big enough to sit on (hopefully) but not so big as to create too much work, and the perfect canvas to create real wow factor outside.

Balcony gardens don't have soil, so won't have weeds, they have fewer pests and, will usually have a great sense of openness – but there are challenges.

Most balconies are either in the sun or the shade, and that is a determining factor. Sunny balconies are really sunny, whilst on the shady side of a building there's no dappled shade or semi-shade – it's completely sunless. They can also be windy without catching passing rain. And one of the greatest problems is that everything is on view, there's no hidden corner to put things which aren't needed right now.

But, having said all of that, balconies can be a wonderful extension of your living space. Work with all of the challenges and they can be rewarding and beautiful places all year round.

Golden rules

1. Before you put in any plants think about watering. How will you get water to the plants and where will the water go afterwards? An outside tap is ideal but if you have to rely on watering cans think about how many trips you'll need to keep everything looking good throughout the summer. Don't put in more plants than you will happily water.

2. Always think about safety with balconies. The main issues are things falling off, making sure drainage is good and not putting too much weight on your balcony. If in doubt ask for professional help. Also, rather importantly, you should not BBQ on your balcony as it poses a fire and safety risk.

3. If there's space, treat your balcony like an outside room, so use pots or decorations to create a sitting area. And, just like indoors, decorate the walls, think about lighting and accessorise with a good strong look in mind.

4. Work with the conditions. If your balcony is on the sunny side you will probably need to bring in shade, if it's windy try creating wind-breaks. If there's a bad view, screen it off with plants and trellis.

5. One thing that is often forgotten on balconies but is really important is fragrance. Scented plants so close to the house are really magical, not just in summer but in winter too.

6. Remember to use the verticals on your balcony. Don't just use the floors to place pots and ornaments on, the walls are vital growing and decorating spaces.

7. Finally, the one thing that will make a huge difference to any balcony is regular love. There is no sight so sad in the gardening world as a neglected balcony. Even if it's just 10 minutes a week, make a date to go out there, sweep around, water and generally spruce up. It will make all the difference.

Balcony plants

Balconies tend to deal with extremes, so if it's sunny it will be bakingly sunny; if it's shady, it will be absolutely sunless, especially in winter.

1. If you have a sunny balcony the best plants to have will be ones which can cope with lack of water. There's a reason geraniums are the balcony plant of choice in Mediterranean countries, they are bright and colourful and won't wilt if they are left for a few hours (or even days!) in the sun. Varieties such as petunias or marigolds are also good options.

Pelargonium Europe

2. Also try grasses, not only will these thrive in sunny dry conditions, they move beautifully in any breeze and bring a lovely gauziness.

3. For scents, those Mediterranean herbs provide a cornucopia of possibilities – basil, lavender, sage, rosemary. Your sunny balcony is exactly what they like.

4. If you have shade think about going with large-leaved jungle plants, so things like fatsia, bamboos and hostas. These will create a great atmosphere and many of them have the added benefit of being evergreen. Chris Bonnett from GardeningExpress.co.uk suggests primroses and foxgloves if the sun is hard to come by.

5. Scent is harder to come by in the shade but there are some lovely surprises like Christmas box for winter and nicotiana sylvestris for amazing summer scent.

6. Plants which are low-lying and therefore less likely to break in the wind, such as Begonias, should fare better than taller plants such as Delphiniums, explains Chris Bonnett.

Balcony planters

Container gardening: If you have no soil to plant directly into, containers are a great alternative and will provide the conditions needed to grow flowers. Containers can be pots, troughs, hanging baskets and window boxes. Many pots and troughs in particular can be designed to fit onto balcony railings.

'Using containers and pots means that you can position your plants anywhere in the space and is a great way to personalise and add colour to a balcony,' says Chris.

Not just limited to front gardens, hanging baskets can make the perfect balcony display. Styling several hanging baskets at different heights against a bare wall can create a great feature.

For the eco-conscious, you can repurpose items in your home, for example, using an old wellington boot as a planter.

Seasonal changes and affordable updates

Balconies are relatively small, and so any changes you make will be easy to do and should be cheaper than doing up a whole garden.

1. With a balcony, every corner is on show so there's no room for a pot or container that isn't performing. Even if you can't do a clean sweep every few months, at the least always have seasonal performers at the front or on the table to catch the eye. Use winter bedding, spring bulbs, or even just a bunch of flowers to brighten up the space with plants that are looking their best.

    2. Repainting is a great way to update the look of a balcony. The walls and the floor tend to be very dominant to the spaces, so a fresh coat of paint can really transform how it all looks.

    3. Think about having a change around with the furniture – new seats will have a great immediate effect. They don't have to be expensive and if you're on a budget, look for second hand furniture which can be painted to fit your look.

    4. Having a theme or look in mind is really helpful when choosing paint, furniture or ornaments. For example, you could create a clean, modern look with white and grey, or opt for bright primary colours to cheer up your space in winter or summer.

    'During the summer, I turn to decorations that conjure up a relaxed boho look without much effort, for example, wall hangings and outdoor rugs in all colours and shapes. Try layering rugs in different patterns and colours to create a striking look and add depth to a balcony with limited square footage,' explains Wayfair's Resident Style Advisor, Nadia McCowan Hill.

    5. Use the uprights more effectively. Putting up trellis on the walls, even before the plants have grown up, will add structure and make the area look more finished. Or even a ladder shelf that can hold plants, a watering can or other accessories.

    Wayfair / HEJM

    'Don’t forget to take advantage of vertical space. A decorative wooden ladder offers a spot for hanging succulents, small lanterns or wool blankets for cooler evenings. While ceiling-mounted hanging chairs leave the floor free and convey a feeling of lightness,' adds Nadia.

    7. When it comes to balcony furniture, try to create an outdoor room, bringing the inside out. Asmall lounge corner is great for creating a cosy nook on a balcony. Poufs and stools are also perfect for a small balcony and have a relaxed feel. With an outdoor rug, there are plenty of designs to choose from, whether it's a neutral or bold pattern.

    Wayfair

    8. Add storage space. An outside storage box or bench with under seat storage will make a huge difference and is perfect for hiding essentials or accessories that need to be kept in a cool, dry place.

    Low maintenance

    It's really important with balcony gardens to do some maintenance – they tend to get dusty and things blow over, so even just a few, regular minutes will do to sweep round.

    1. The area will inevitably create rubbish, whether that's dead leaves, old flowers or just sweepings. To make it easy to get rid of the rubbish, have a bin outside, a ready supply of bin bags, and a brush and pan against the wall.

    2. Watering is a big time-consumer with balcony gardening so make it as easy as possible. There are some really stylish watering can designs nowadays, so you can buy one to suit your decor. Alternatively, a collapsible watering can will be easier to use and store than a conventional one.

    3. Pot trays, used under your containers, will hold the water and will mean you can get the watering can out less often.

    Big mistakes

    It's easy to get balconies wrong; they can look over busy and over crowded.

    1. Even if your balcony is small don't think you have to use small pots and small plants. Big, bold, structural planting will still look better than over-filled, fussy arrangements.

    2. Random planting rarely looks good. Regular patterns of tall and short will feel and look better than a scattering of different sizes. So perhaps go for taller plants at the corners of the balcony and shorter along the front. This will give a balance and structure which will feel better.

    3. Even if you think we don't have much sun in this country, it can get too hot very quickly on a balcony, so a bit of shade is really essential on a balcony that faces south. One great way to introduce shade is to use climbers over wires. If you use deciduous plants, which die back in winter, you'll have lovely green dappled shade in summer but won't block off the light in winter.

    4. Trying to fit too much onto the balcony will make it all feel too tight. A table that you can't get around will not feel right and won't look right. There are some wonderful space-saving products coming through now which fit onto the railings, from foldout desks and tables to planters.

    The railings of your balcony can really make the difference to how the whole thing looks. Stainless steel and glass balustrades are the most beautiful modern alternatives, not cheap, but they look great and let in light. For a more traditional building, have a look at ornate iron work – hugely expensive but works of art.

    A balcony garden is no stranger to urban apartments. If you are living in a big city where a backyard is not an option, you likely rely on nearby parks for your daily dose of greenery.

    If you want to add some color to your outdoor space this summer and are lucky enough to have a deck or balcony, buying a railing planter is an easy way to do it. They mount to the edge with hooks, ledges, or a cutout in the base, and are generally a snap to set up—and some require zero time to install. They look great solo or in multiples, spaced evenly along the railing, plus you don't need to spend a fortune on the project, as there are options in the market for $20 or less. We've rounded up our favorites, with recommendations below to suit every style and budget.

    What to Consider

    Shopping for a railing planters is somewhat similar to searching for the perfect window box. The first thing to take into account for railing planters is the width of your deck or balcony's railing. Several are made to set into wood that’s 2x4 or 2x6, and there are also planters that are adjustable, which is handy. If neither option works for you, your best bet is to choose one with hooks. Some are designed to be permanently mounted (and most come with mounting hardware).

    Next up, you'll need to decide on material. Railing planters are typically made of high-grade polyethylene, wood, or various metals such as steel, typically powder-coated or galvanized to prevent rust, or copper, which takes on a weathered patina over time. The vast majority have drainage holes or slats at the bottom, and there are also self-watering planters, with reservoirs at the bottom.

    How We Chose

    Our selection includes railing planters with a minimum average four stars or more, and the majority of those featured below receive ratings of 4.5 stars or higher. We cover planters in a range of materials, as mentioned above, and in a range of styles, with assorted finishes. We also offer options across multiple price points, from budget-friendly, under-$20 planters to high-end picks that hover around $200 at the time of this writing.

    Though it may be harder to maintain, the elegant look of real wood is tough to match. This large, handsome planter, with rounded sides in a half-barrel shape, is made in Maine, crafted from northern white cedar. It holds a generous amount of plants and can works with deck or balcony railings that are either 2x4 or 2x6. 

    The wood is unfinished, which means it’ll take on a weathered, silver gray appearance over time. It lacks drainage holes, but the wood slats at the base allow for water to run through.

    This planter has a smart design, with two side-by-side planters that flank a railing. That means there’s no need for mounting hardware and you can move them around as you please. They’re made from all-weather resin and are self-watering—a major bonus—with reservoirs at the base that’s set below the soil and roots, with draining holes at the bottom. 

    They’re also extendable and can fit on railings of various widths, including round rails. The planter is available in dark green and terra cotta, in addition to the fresh-looking white that’s shown.

    Coconut plant fiber liners hold water exceptionally well, which allow plant roots to take up moisture as needed, and also provide excellent drainage because they’re porous. This coco liner railing planter has a thick tuft of the material set inside a steel frame, with a black powder-coated finish to prevent rust. The 30-inch-wide planter comes with hooks and mounting hardware, and it’s available in 36-inch- and 48-inch-wide sizes.
