Balcony garden in Melbourne

This contemporary balcony garden forms the back drop and main view from the master bedroom.

Our challenge was to fill it with plants. Sounds simple enough, there was just a few limitations.

The weight loading on the roof restricted how deep we could have the soil, so this affects the type of plants we can grow that will give us height and impact.

We also didn’t want to end up with a mass of large pots that would look busy and bitsy.

Our solution was to utilise custom made planters.  Designed specifically for the space, we achieved a bulk of mass planting, with colours that reflect the house interior.  And plants that will thrive in a shallow soil profile.
