The 20m terrace garden is as beautiful as just coming out of a fairy tale
Lily’s 20m² terrace garden in Shenzhen city (China) owns a scene that everyone loves. The climbing roses covered the white wooden fence around the garden. In the corner of the garden is a row of hydrangeas in bloom. Around the garden, there are all kinds of flowers blooming.
Lovely potted cactus plants on the windowsill. A set of tables and chairs is placed in the middle of the garden for the most relaxing moments. Reading a book in the winter, sunbathing in the spring, enjoying the breeze in the summer, and in the fall, you can watch your favorite movies in the garden.
Such a garden is the dream of many women. And Lily – the owner of this garden also spent a lot of time and effort to create it. The garden was built in the winter of 2015. So far, Lily has been attached to this small garden for 7 years.
Every year 4 seasons pass, the small garden records the change of time and Lily’s efforts and efforts. Because not every garden with many kinds of flowers looks beautiful. It all depends on the aesthetic eye and skillful arrangement of the garden owner.
Lily shared that the overall style choice determines the attraction of the whole garden. Besides, the arrangement of flowers next to each other also has some attention to avoid creating a sense of clutter.
The arrangement of the potted plants is also quite important. Flowers that tend to grow into large bushes should be placed in a low position. In contrast, with small flowers, you can plant them inside hanging baskets to save space.
A decisive factor to the beauty of this terrace garden is the decorative accessories. Lily spent a lot of time looking for planters in the shape of boots and animals used in the garden. Decorative statues, iron bird cages and wall accessories are all factors that create vivid beauty for the terrace garden.
When it comes to plants grown in the garden, roses are the dominant species. In the early days, Lily only chose to buy a few flower pots. But after only a few years, the number of varieties of roses in the garden has increased so much that she has to use an excel spreadsheet to make statistics.
As a florist, Lily loves plants like hydrangeas and geraniums. They are easy to care for and when in bloom, they look beautiful. Especially the hydrangea bushes, when summer comes, they will begin to bloom. Lily’s joy every morning when she wakes up is counting how many more flowers have just bloomed that day.
Of course, behind the growth of a garden there are many factors. These include light, good ventilation, nutrient-rich soil, and regular fertilization.
Lily has found the right mix ratio of peat soil, coir, organic and slow-release fertilizers to use in her garden. In addition, in the period without buds, the plant will be provided with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. During the flowering period, she increases the phosphorus content, reduces nitrogen to promote and prolong the flowering period.
To have a beautiful garden like in a fairy tale, just planting trees is not enough. You need to know the knowledge about care and a relative aesthetic gout. With the sharing about Lily’s terrace garden above, hope to help you in the process of creating a small garden of your own.
