You prefer to enjoy more time in nature, but you live in the downtown area of a big city. Your busy schedule allows no time to escape in the local park. You see concrete, glass, and steel, and you would like to diversify it with some greenery. Imagine how it would be to drink your morning coffee and read your paper while your feet rest on a pad of grass? I know a business person that does that for half an hour almost every morning as a ritual for reconnecting to nature. Another friend is doing sun gazing while placing his feet on natural material. And they both don’t leave the city for that. They even don’t leave their homes. The first one created a part of his home office into a small green area. The other made his balcony a sanctuary of his connection to mother nature. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it?
The best way is the simplest way: bring nature home. Whether you want to start an herb garden inside your kitchen or make a beautiful flower design on your balcony or terrace, the possibilities are endless. Mojito tastes the best when you use freshly cut mint leaves, gently squeezed. How about adding some dill to your tzatziki salad picked right at your kitchen table. A living wall of different oxygen-producing greens looks amazing instead of oil paintings or tapestry. A breath of delightful aromas can refresh you when you go to your bathroom, to your balcony, or your special nook in the living room.
Possibilities for home garden arrangements are endless. Your balcony can become the most pleasant part of your apartment when designed with enough imagination and passion. Your kitchen table might transform into the tastiest herb garden. The living room would be more pleasant with some combination of green and colorful plants. Interested in the possibilities of making your home more enjoyable? Scroll below for some crispy home garden ideas.

These insights might make you jump onto buying seeds, pots, and plants. That’s great. Just have in mind several issues. Use as many plants as you feel comfortable taking care of. Another matter of consideration is the growing medium of the plants. Using dirt from your outdoor backyard is not the best idea for indoor gardening. Buy already prepared bags with a substrate. Some plants might attract bugs, which is not a very pleasant situation. And lastly, ask yourself: How many plants are too many. I remember when my mother turned one whole room into a kind of greenhouse, with plants on the table, on the floor, and on the bookshelves. There’s a low possibility for some health issues due to too many plants. However, they do produce carbon dioxide overnight. Moderation is a virtue.
