Add some greens to your home by creating a pocket garden in your outdoor space. Treetopia shows you how

The most effective way to create a relaxing ambiance in your space is by having plants around the house. If you aren’t much of a green thumb or don’t have a lot of extra space to organize a garden, try out some of these stylish and decorative pocket gardens you can create in your own home:

Vertical Garden

Since more houses are becoming compact, more people are opting to display vertical gardens in their home.

Outdoors

A small patio or balcony is a perfect spot for a vertical garden. All you need are containers and nails or screws to secure the plant boxes in place on the wall.

You can also get creative by repurposing extra PVC pipes as planters. Just cut them in half, fill with the appropriate soil, and let your plants grow.

Indoors

If you have an extra space indoors, you may want to add an indoor vertical garden for added style and ambiance. You can either display potted saplings in that small space devoted to the plants or have several hanging plants secured in place. Add appropriate dramatic lighting to create a nice ambiance.

Herb Garden

If you’re health-conscious, you can display your own herb garden in your kitchen. Secure decorative bottles or canisters, attach them to wooden boards, and label accordingly. Plant the appropriate herbs in the canisters or bottles, and take care of them well. In time, you will be able to use fresh herbs in your recipes.

Bonsai Garden

Bonsai isn’t just something for your collection. Maintaining Bonsai is an art form all on its own because it requires patience and skill. If you have that patience and skill or want to master them, try maintaining a Bonsai garden. If you don’t want to start from scratch, there are potted Bonsai plants available and ready to be displayed all around your home.

Terrarium

Terrariums are becoming more popular nowadays because they’re not only easy to design, but also easy to maintain. You can design your own terrarium to fit any size and shape of container and make them as close to nature or whimsical as you want.
