Creative ways to Plant | Garden ideas

All of the happiest-looking homes have one thing in common, Plants. Lots of it.

The reason is that greenery makes us feel more relaxed, calmer, happier, and more productive.

During many of life’s biggest moments like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and even funerals, we surround ourselves with plants.

Even if most of us love plants, many hesitate when it comes to adding plants to their home decor list is because they are not sure how to take care of them, and where to actually put them. In fact, without taking up much space you can add plants to your home.

Here are some interesting planting ideas for you.

  1. Mount extra shelving around, inside, or under your windows

Plants need a place where they can thrive and the best place is near the window. Now, not all window spaces will be able to accommodate plants but with a little tweak, you can achieve this. Fit custom-made shelves near the window.

To give the appearance of more depth you can even mount a shelf level with your window ledge. For cat owners, this hack is a bonus, as this will keep their greenery away from their furry friends.

  1. Create a succulent wall

For folks who have space constraints, vertical succulent gardens are perfect as they won’t take up valuable counter top and floor space.

  1. Display your greenery on a picture ledge

To add plants to your home picture ledges are a no-hassle way. They are not like regular shelves as they have lips which will prevent plants from getting knocked off. When compared to regular shelves they are quite cheap as well. Just make sure that they are wide enough to hold potted plants.

  1. Hang small planters from unused coat hooks

To add a pop of green in almost any room in your home this is a super space-saving and innovative way. From the unused hooks on your coat or towel rack, you can hang small succulent planters.

  1. To hang multiple plants mount tension rods

To get your greenery off of tabletops, counters, and window sills use tension rods throughout your home. Use sturdy and large tension rods to hold larger plants, and smaller tension rods to mount smaller plants.

  1. Grow greenery in your shower

When it comes to design and art your shower is probably one of the most underrated spaces in your home. You can grow moisture-loving plants like ferns in your shower instead of simply hanging an eye-catching shower curtain.

  1. Grow plants in water

One of the easiest ways to increase the number of plants in your home is propagation. You can cut plants and place them in round-bottom jars. Just make sure that the roots have enough room to grow. However, this is not possible with all plants. Try herbs like mint, rosemary, lavender, sage, etc.

  1. Grow what you can eat

Growing what you can eat is a smart way to add greenery in your home. You can grow veggies as well as herb gardens by wall mounting them.

  1. Mount a wire grid for versatility

When there is not much space to spare for greenery you can try a wall-mounted wire grid alongside S hooks.

  1. Think about your plants as art

You can incorporate greenery in your artwork. For instance, near a wall hanging you can hang fresh eucalyptus or dried flowers. You will find a lot of wall decors online that would go well with greenery.
