Bring your home to life – Green it up!

Lush green is the flavour of the season. Bring your home to life with your own beautification drive. Pollution and heat rule the roost today. The literal drab and dullness that ensues, as a result, is often combated by the green patch at your home; your own unique garden. Today the concept of terrace gardens and improving the home décor through the usage of ornamental plants has added much vigour to living spaces. Beyond adding to the aesthetics, it is also a small step towards doing your bit for the environment. Greta Thunberg would be very happy. Moreover, it also leads to the generation of pure and fresh natural air at home.

Use the space

When we pass bungalows while driving, we often notice the manicured lawns and beautiful flowers blooming in the garden and wish that we had a green cover of our own. But many don’t have the space to have a full-fledged garden. So fear not, use your own space at home innovatively to have your own terrace garden. And no, you don’t exactly need a terrace for one. A balcony or passageway will also serve the purpose. Time to ignite your passion for gardening! Rightly scour the floret markets for innovative pot holders which can host a row of plants in a single rack. You can have them strung outside a large window, hang them in an open passage, or even place them in neat rows, hosting different flowering plants on the balcony. When you buy one of these, only ensure that there are proper arrangements made for the drainage of water to seep past. It will otherwise become a nuisance when you have clogged drains or water dripping away in all glory on the streets below. Also, if you want to try something different and utilize knick-knacks, use a bicycle basket or a big wicker basket to host your pots. You can decorate them, paint them, doodle on them, and then have plonk some plants in them to have a bright and fancy flower basket.

Innovate

Moving on, often, we come across extra wiring hanging around in odd corners at home. Be it the clothesline or maybe unused, dysfunctional electrical wires, now, you can use them for home décor. All you need to do is have a potted plant like tomato and gently twine them along such wires and see them grow all around it. This will also add a dash of nice green colour to your space. You can also have hooks placed on the walls and ceilings strategically and in tandem for these vines to grow. Today, there are multiple innovations and hacks available to convert any container or use any empty space to add green ornamentation. Take for example old bottles lying around at home. What you can do is collect all of them, make a hole in the middle, and fill the bottle with soil and the seeds you want to grow. You can either string them on walls in the pattern of your choice, to decorate your area. Then you would also encounter the problem of low or no sunlight and there are fewer airlines in the living area. But there are plants which thrive in no sunlight too! Find them. You can also use a lamp and all it requires is the right amount of water daily. Plants like umbrella palms and snake plants do not require much sunlight to grow.

This way you can cover your empty corners and sync them with your terrace garden. So here’s to happy greens!
