Flowering Plants for an Apartment Patio Spring Refresh
Well, it’s probably no surprise to you that the first thing I think of when I want to spruce up my tiny patio is flowering plants!
You can add a lot of color (think yellows and purples and more) or a little bit of color (think ALL white flowers) to make your patio reflect your vibe for the season!
As you can see, purple and yellow are my colors of choice this season. They just seemed to sing to me when I was shopping at the Home Depot nursery!
What colors are your go-to colors for spring flowers?
Use Different Containers to Add Interest
My container of choice is a terra cotta pot(s). And I’m NOT talkin’ your mama’s clay pots here!
And of course, the little ‘terrazzo’ pot joined the patio a few seasons ago… it housed this tiny succulent…
Which now has found a home in my large terra cotta pot! What a difference a year makes!
You can pick up some inexpensive galvanized/metal containers at the Dollar Store… These came with a tray and three pots for $3! Here is something similar, but a ‘bit’ more expensive.
How to Refresh Your Apartment Patio for Spring -Add Special Elements
Do you have a window box somewhere on the outside of your home? Well, if you can’t add a little window box to your small apartment window, think about adding one to your patio rails! You can pick up one this time of year, usually on sale, at Hobby Lobby.
These sweet little white flowers with yellow centers look like daisies. And, of course, I forgot to write down the name before I threw away the containers!
Adding some natural colored rafia straw adds a bit more ‘cozy’ to the box of containers, and adds another texture element, too!
Another surprise element is adding some cute little spring birds… or anything that reminds you of spring in your garden!
Apartment Patio Spring Refresh – Add Some Nighttime Sparkle
Don’t you love fairy lights? They seem to just add some extra ‘umph’ to just about any decor element.
Well, why not add some twinkle lights to your patio, too?! These ivy garlands not only look great during the day, but add a couple AA batteries to them, and they add some sparkly joy to your patio garden, too!
And they look so pretty hanging over the window box. (You can grab a boatload of these ivy garlands on Amazon for even less!)
A Couple More Tips for How to Refresh Your Apartment Patio for Spring
Remember, it’s easy to get these plants from your local big box hardware store’s nursery area. Personally, I prefer Home Depot. BUT, you can go to your local specialty nursery and have a lot more to choose from!
Petunias are super budget-friendly and they grow profusely during the spring and summer!
And, if you made it this far in the post, you’re going to get a little intel. The next time you see My Wee Abode’s patio, it may just be a bit bigger! 😉 Changes are-a-comin’!
I truly hope these tips and tricks inspired you to give your outside living area a makeover or refresh!
