Whip your balcony into shape

01 February 2016

When the chill starts to break and the sun peaks out a little more often, the balcony starts calling your name loud and clear. It doesn’t need to be in tip top shape for you to begin enjoying some time outdoors. Here’s how we make small adjustments to get out there ASAP.

There are certain things that can stand up to the elements and hang out on the balcony all winter long. Luckily, these are usually pretty bulky and hard-to-store items, as well. During colder months, the metal trolley handles pots and hearty plants, while outdoor seating stays in good shape thanks to weather resistant covers. Just uncover them and start arranging the plants to lay the foundation for your spring balcony.
