Balconies and Patios

​​​​Condominium, townhome and other types of multifamily property owners can create a NatureScape container garden. Do you work in an office "condo"? Plant a container garden at work, too.

One advantage of a container garden is that it is moveable, so you can easily adjust the plants, as their sunlight requirements change. To plant a container garden, just start with the basics. Consider how much room you have to use, and how much light and rain reaches that space.

You can be creative with the containers; planter boxes, wooden barrels, hanging baskets and large flowerpots are just some of the containers that you can use.
