Here at Mondial River West every apartment has it’s own private balcony. Each balcony can be spruced up and made to be your own little piece of paradise with a little apartment decorating. These tips can help you get your balcony ready for spring.

Turning your balcony into a garden retreat. Mix up colorful plants and flowers to create your garden. You could also include herbs that can be used in the kitchen. When arranging, plants that need sun should go higher while shade plants need a lower spot. Corners are perfect for larger plants and herb collections.

Take good care. Keep your garden balcony fresh and secure. Be sure plants are secure so they will not fall. Fertilize your plants, keep them trim, and water them regularly. This will ensure that your garden oasis lasts.

Enjoying your retreat. Once you have your garden retreat you will want to enjoy it. The best way to do that is by adding a small table and a chair or two. Or you can create a bench with a cushion and a few pillows.
