As our beautiful summer continues, we’re all taking in the sunshine and the longer days. And if you live in a condo, many offer small patios or balconies so tenants can soak it all up.
Kodiak Properties, your trusted property management company, offers some great tips to help you turn that patio from boring to stunning even if you don’t have a “green thumb”. It doesn’t take much, but you will delight in the way your patio is magically transformed!
The easiest way to “dress up” your patio is to use containers, window boxes, planters and smaller garden plants. They are the best way to create special outdoor rooms easily and economically.
You can also build an entire herb and vegetable garden on your patio using corner planters specifically designed for limited space. Herbs are ideal beginner plants for newbie gardeners.
If you buy plants that come in small plastic pots, the first thing you should do is replant them in larger pots, especially herbs so they can produce a big yield. Mix up your planters with perennial herbs like mint, thyme, rosemary and lavender with other potted plants on the patio. Most require very little care and just need to watered and trimmed back once in a while
Most hardware store or nurseries sell nice pots and colourful planters. Chose a colour scheme for your potted plants and planters. You will be amazed at your patio transformation!
To find the most ideal flowers or plants to grow on your patio, the best approach is to ask for help. Find out whether you get full-on sun all day long. Or is it bright in the morning, and shady in the afternoon? Ask for professional advice from your local nursery on which plants are the best for the type of sunlight your patio receives throughout the day.
By following these few simple tips, you too can enjoy patio life right in your own condo!
