    Get Planters From: If you want to get new planters that are not plastic, then go for brands like Sashaa World, Knotty Dhaage, Planter's Corner, or All That Grass. They make awesome earth-friendly planters from natural fibers (like jute, rattan, water hyacinth, and Sabai grass), as well as recycled materials (like tyres, glass, etc) - these planters will transform the look of your balcony or outdoor garden altogether!

    How About A Fairy Garden?

    If you thought that fairy gardens are just fun garden activities for kids, think again. A new study shows that fairy gardens are the most searched for online. They've been in demand all of 2021, and they continue to be loved by plant parents. These miniature gardens create whimsical, fantasy scenes, typically involving fairy figurines and miniatures of fairy homes. Many designs are exceptionally detailed. Some people also take the fairy garden theme large-scale, building human-sized doors into trees in their gardens, or opting for full-sized sculptures of fairies. However, it is the most suitable for smaller and cozier balcony spaces. 

    Get Fairy Gardens From: Make a magical backyard by purchasing fairy gardens from Chiguru- The Miniature Garden Store, or Muddy Waters Mini Gardens. You can also opt for terrariums from Trust Basket or Flower Aura

    One cannot not like the chirping sound of the birds in the morning (or any time of the day to be honest). It's like music to the ears. Birds are most attracted to gardens with the maximum amount of greenery, or when you hang a bird feeder or a birdhouse for them, with some bird food. If you want to have a soothing ambience in your garden, adding these feeders will enhance the authenticity of your green space, and also give it a quirky look.
