3 ways to create a gorgeous green space at your apartment
1. Think Creatively
From cascading flowers in hanging baskets to cute miniature micropods, there are plenty of options to grow the small-scale garden of your dreams. When it comes to maintenance, a quick daily water and the occasional boost of fertiliser might be all you need to keep everything thriving.
Growing greenery in apartments helps you avoid common pests that create havoc in traditional gardens. Positioning those herbs and veggies on your apartment balcony also means they’ll enjoy a sheltered spot whatever the season.
If you don’t have a deck, simply build-up that greenery inside with indoor plants. As well as looking gorgeous, many varieties are even scientifically shown to help your well-being.
2. Simple Sustainability
Along with planting according to the seasons, there are many ways your residential apartment can work in harmony with nature. For apartments with decks, worm farms are one way to reduce your household waste – or you could consider a Bokashi unit in your kitchen. They’ll create a super-food liquid that your plants will love!
A smaller space means you’ll also cut-down on your water use too by avoiding the need to regularly top-up those thirsty garden beds.
3. Clever Design
Light-drenched spaces instantly make us feel good and help deliver that essential boost of Vitamin D. Clever architectural design should ensure your apartment maximises the available sunshine and views year-round.
Your own interior styling can also help create a cosy haven for that morning coffee or the perfect spot to entertain your guests. It could be as easy as adding some stylish outdoor furniture, lighting and a cosy throw and cushions.
Location is crucial. Check the residential apartment offers connectivity to surrounding green spaces. In the case of our Newmarket Residences development, it’s an easy stroll to the scenic Auckland Domain. Then, there’s the spectacular alpine views that property investors at our LQ Kawarau River project can enjoy.
