Do you want to add a spark to your monotonous terrace garden? It is a preconceived notion among people that a terrace garden set up requires hardcore efforts and capital. But here we are to bust this myth by giving you some easy terrace garden ideas which demand minimum efforts, and are budget-friendly.
1. Add a Small Centre Table
The first step to make your terrace place look stylish and comfortable is by adding a small, quirky table and some chairs. Here you can easily relax, and enjoy a cup of your coffee or tea.
Choose a foldable table, so that you can store it at times when it’s not needed. This table will give your terrace a rooftop cafeteria vibe. You can add a small flower vase, a cute goody basket to store a few essentials, and some candles for the night, and amplify the whole decor aesthetic of the place.
2. Add Sofa for a garden party
There is an ongoing trend of having rooftop parties or family/friends gatherings. You can achieve that by adding a sofa and some bamboo plants. It gives a rustic vibe to your terrace.
You can layer this seating by adding synthetic grass on the floor or the walls. It looks chic, and also makes your terrace look like a rooftop garden.
