For a calm and neat gardening space, we created a work station against one wall. Enter, smart storage units. Pick one that’s not too deep, but still provides plenty of space to hold your essential tools, bags of soil, and pots. This storage unit has adjustable shelves that adapt to your needs, closed cabinets to keep things dry, and open shelving for you to display your beautiful plants and anything you might need to reach for more often. You can even add a trellis for vertical gardening.

A proper gardener’s balcony really comes to life when your plants and flowers are beautifully displayed. Try large flower boxes for bigger plants or vegetables that need more soil depth, improvise with smaller wooden ones for groups of potted plants, and experiment with a single pot in more creative pieces, like a large birdcage. A couple foldable chairs and a table give you just enough room to enjoy the view with a cup of coffee and a good book, without taking too much space away from your plants.
