How relaxing it is to go and sit in your garden after a hard day's work. A place of relaxation can be created on your balcony by simply placing a comfortable chair in the corner and surround it with plants and flowers. No matter how small your balcony is, it can still be an area for escape and relaxation. Balcony gardens are generally designed around plastic / fiberglass flower pots. They are lightweight, easy to manage and attractive. They also won't crack like terracotta or ceramic if left outside in harsh temperatures.
