Amount of Light

The first step in planning your Brewster home balcony garden is figuring out how much light you get. Does your balcony get direct sunlight all day, part of the day or is your balcony located in the shade? Spend an especially sunny day watching the amount of light your balcony gets before you start planning your garden plants. Once you know the amount of light you get, you can start making an informed decision on what types of plants you can incorporate in your design. The reason you need to pay attention to the amount of light your balcony gets during the day is because all plants are different. Some plants require shade, and others require half sun and shade, while others need direct sunlight all day.

If you want your Brewster home balcony to thrive and look its best for potential buyers, you need to choose plants compatible with your balcony’s lighting conditions. If you put a plant that needs full shade on your balcony and it is in direct sunlight all day long, the plant will dry up and die. A balcony full of wilting or dead plants will not attract buyers! Speak to a nursery professional about your balcony’s light to find out what plants will work for your garden. The Farm in Orleans is a family owned an operated nursery that has been helping Cape Codders figure out what would work for their homes for years. The professionals at the Farm located on Rock Harbor Road would be happy to assist you in finding the right plants for your Brewster home balcony.

Vertical gardens and bag gardening has gained in popularity the last couple of years, allowing just about anyone to have a garden of their own regardless of the amount of space they have available. It is possible to grow your own food on your balcony and enjoy watching the fruit of your labor grow right in front of your eyes. This ready made garden could be very appealing to potential buyers.

Privacy is Key

Living in a densely developed neighborhood can often make you feel as though your privacy is lacking. You can sometimes feel as though you are living in a fish bowl or birdcage. However, you have the ability to create your own privacy on your balcony by landscaping it properly. Creating a garden on your Brewster home balcony can make you feel a little more sheltered from the other properties and people walking around your home. This privacy feature can also be very appealing for home buyers, instantly setting you apart from other real estate on the market.

Pick out some thick greens and hedges with height to create an organic fence on your Brewster home balcony. Creating this private garden space on your balcony is a great excuse to explore the Wellfleet Flea Market at the Wellfleet Drive-in and Cinema. Look for fun small tables to elevate plants to give your balcony a pop of color at every level so the greenery is not the only tall barrier to your neighbors. Creating privacy through a garden on your balcony gives you the quiet solitude you desire, and attractiveness that will be appealing to not only you but also your neighbors.
