Innovative Ways To Beckon Nature To Your Home

A little time, effort and available space in the house is just what’s needed to create greenery in one’s house. The porch is usually open from the top and the sides which makes it susceptible to vagaries of nature like wind, temperature variants etc. This can be tackled by swathing the top and leaving the sides exposed or alternatively leaving the top open like a courtyard. One can hem in one segment of area with glass or fortified polythene panes which are easily obtainable at any garden store. One can then control the milieu with the aid of fans, padding and sunscreen panes. If one is averse to the idea of enclosing the porch with anything synthetic, one could opt for a forest like space with bigger potted trees organised outwards followed by smaller size hedging plants and herbs can be placed under the shade of the bigger plants which thrive in shade.

A gallery though covered on one side is still exposed to birds, dust and wind. In a top covered gallery, one can grow lianas that could creep towards the top, thus providing the necessary dust cover and privacy. One can create a panel of net, wooden frame, lumber or cane and grow vines on it. This ascertains that even in a miniature area one can enjoy greenery and still soak in the sun, daylight and wind in the space, avoiding hording the space with too many pots.

A gallery like area on the basement has the plus point of solitude of an enclosed space with the open areas of an outdoor space. One can cultivate analogous lines of miniature plants to characterize a path leading to this, thus creating a feeling of picture perfect space.

A tiny piece of ground can be worked upon to create a turf. One can make a frontier or a hedge in varying heights with hibiscus or ficus for example and encircle it with trees. One can build a wall along which one can add a dash of colour through natural flowers or synthetic flowers like frescos. Sand, multicoloured stones or pebbles flounced into whirls will give a captivating garden effect.

The patio, an open space within the built structure, is the most shielded of al fresco spaces. One can arrange the space from core exuding outwards. A big tree at the centre can be encircled by gleaming tiles or a podium circling the tree can double as a seating, relaxing and shaded area.

One can pepper greenery through the house in probably latent areas like placing a palm plant in a crone, a small plant beneath a glass table, potted cactus, bonsai or herbs in a bowl can be placed on the dinner table.

One can make a box garden setting in the window area. A grill can be built to fix pot hangers on, an overflow tray to prevent any seepage down and pot holding devices and fasteners.
