"April, April, he does what he wants." But not only the changeable weather god keeps coming up with something new this month. Also in the house and garden variety is now announced. Do you already come up with ideas? No matter how you answered this question, one thing is certain: you will always find many inspirations in our specially compiled picture gallery.
April on the balcony - the black and white design is dominant here
April is here and golden times begin. On the terrace and balcony, the typical balcony plants show their creative and varied side, along with filigree grasses, fragrant herbs and exciting leaf structure plants. This creates lively contrasts that can be combined in a variety of ways. Because planters are not necessarily overflowing with abundance of blossoms, but like gardens on a small scale. Gardens that are mobile and that you can rearrange and stage according to your mood.
Colorful design for the small balcony
Hardy plants like purple bells ( Heuchera ) and lamp cleaning grass ( Pennisetum alopecuroides ), who experience the change of the seasons up close, make the Flower boxes on balcony and terrace throughout the year through attractive and lively.
Lush green, few colors and simpler design make the no balcony a place to relax
The most striking leaves are certainly the fascinating colorful nettles ( Solenostemon scutellarioides ) with her almost black foliage. This allows a beautiful, harmonious contrast with the flowers of petunia ( Petunia ) or shrub marguerites ( Argyranthemum frutescens ), which are beautifully staged. Also a show in itself are the lobed leaves of the purple bell, which delight with their intense colors and eye-catching patterns. Absolutely recommendable is also the four-leaved chocolate ( Trifolium repens ) with its dark brown, light green bordered leaflets. Planted on the edge of the pot, his long shoots will soon be beautifully hung down. Like fountains, on the other hand, the narrow leaves of the lamp-brush grass spring open and can thus bring more movement and variety into the potted plants.
Anyone can be creative with plants on the balcony
Make sure that your balcony is not overloaded too quickly with too many pots and plants. Finally, you want to have enough space to spend relaxed time with friends, family or in peace, with yourself there. Lush green, few colors and simpler design will help you create a place of rest and relaxation. Because in the clarity lies the secret.
