Want to make your green space the talk of the neighbourhood with hanging plants? Here are 5 ideas to inspire you!
1. Selecting the Right Plants
There are plenty of garden plants that thrive in hanging baskets, such as petunias, fuchsias, lobelia, and geraniums. Before buying any hanging plants, make sure to research the species and its sunlight, soil, and water requirements. Also, consider the climate and weather conditions of your region before choosing the plants for your hanging baskets.
2. Pick the Perfect Spot for Your Plants
Once you have selected the garden plants for your hanging basket, the next step is to choose the perfect spot for your plants. You can hang the baskets from your porch ceiling, trees, pergolas or any other garden structure that can support the weight of these plants. Also, while you are busy selecting the right spot, pick a place that receives adequate sunlight and shade critical for the growth of the plant.
3. Use Unique Hanging Planters
While traditional hanging baskets are a great option, using unique hanging planters can add an extra element of creativity to your garden. You can use anything from old metal watering cans to wooden crates and baskets to create a personalized look. You can also use garden tools to make unique hanging planters that add a rustic and vintage feel to your garden.
4. Mix and Match Hanging Plants
Mixing and matching hanging plants is a great way to add a variety of colours, textures, and shapes to your garden. You can mix different types of plants in the same hanging basket or use different baskets with distinct plants to create a unique and eye-catching look. You can also mix and match different colours and shapes of planters to add depth and dimension to your garden.
5. Create a Hanging Garden Wall
Creating a hanging garden wall is a great way to use vertical space in your garden. You can use a trellis, fence, or any other garden structure to hang multiple baskets and create a vertical garden. Vertical gardens are in the hype, and they don’t just look stunning, but they also save space in your garden while integrating a contemporary charm into it.
With a little bit of creativity and the right planters, you can create a hanging plant garden that stands out from the crowd. It can be the focal point of your home and a unique space for you or your guests to escape from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle. So, did you start decorating yet?
