When choosing the space for your outdoor patio gardens, careful planning is required to determine the best possible use of the area you intend to work with. You can design the courtyard garden by choosing the size and type of planters, the arrangement of the paths and lighting, or other features. A garden grille or arbor is another feature that can enrich and shade your patio area. For the entrance to your patio garden, you can add grape flowers or vine plants that will give you a comfortable feeling.
There are many options for patio gardens, depending on the garden area, the size of the pot, and the amount of sunlight that will determine the growth in that area. You always choose the soil for gardening in pots or containers. When gardening in pots, you need soil that will help maintain nutrients and need moisture for your plants to reproduce. There are soilless potting mixes such as coconut, peat moss, perlite or wormwood that are specially made for the container garden.
Disadvantages of terrace gardens::
- Limited Space: The main problem with patio gardens is the fact that, in most cases, there aren’t too many spaces. The terrace is designed for small patio chairs and tables and a grill. Space is limited, especially when growing vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and zucchini. The courtyard garden is not always suitable for growing larger vegetables.
- Requires Numerous Pots: If you want to have a patio garden, you will need multiple pots.
- Requires Frequent Watering: Plants that grow in containers or pots need frequent watering.
- Too little sun: Depending on which side of the house the terrace garden is on. The plants could not increase the sunlight and get a good harvest.
