When renting a house, it sometimes feels difficult to make it your home & give it your own personal touch. Limitations of your own personal style can seem high - so we’ve put together some ways you can by pass the whole not being able to have a garden thing.
As we've all witnessed- bringing the outdoors in has made it’s way back into our homes especially last year & this. We simply adore this 70’s inspired trend & know it's here to stay.
So all the renters out there, you don’t have to feel left out of the decorating loop, there are plenty ways to have a trendy garden whether inside or out, and not have it look so ‘rent-ish’. What’s even better is we’ve made sure our ideas for your garden are packable when you leave too.
What type of plants?
When picking plants for your home its important to think of it’s living arrangements. So great plants or flowers for renters would be Epiphyllums way plants, as they are slow-growing and known to be long – lived plants that bloom in small containers and are adaptable to different lighting conditions. Succulents are a great option as they are low maintenance and versatile, so cute in the bathroom & bedroom. Ferns are so beautiful in the cool dark areas inside the house. Also, how can we not mention the Fiddle Leaf Fig tree, we had to. (Expensive we know but also a beautiful investment you can keep forever)
Using pots instead of creating a garden you can’t take with you – is a terrific solution. You can get creative with the shapes, colours and sizes you choose. Don’t know what type of pots? Do check out Design Twins. Important side note - pots tend to dry out quickly so be sure to waterproof them to help keep the moisture in the soil.
Make a garden bed
So if you can’t plant straight into the ground your answer is; a raised bed. You can either build one your self with some timber or purchase them – either way they are completely portable. Plant your favourite herbs, flowers, fruits or veggies, but make sure to have it placed in a good location – (outside, where it wont get messy when you water it because the water will leak). Take the portable garden bed wherever your next destination is.
