I have a balcony facing Holyrood Park and all its glory. However, it is a blank canvas – concrete floor and black railing. Ideally, I would like to create a green haven for al fresco dining, sun bathing on rare sunny days and star glazing cove at night. The railing offer no privacy and it would be great to avoid any glaring eyes. The design would need to require minimal care as I would not have time to trim, pluck, weed,…. Tips welcomed.
(These photos) taken on a wet Summer (!) evening. Balcony is east facing and normally gets the morning sun. Oh a couple of other areas to address as part of the balcony’s revamp:< birds flying over. Great to watch but they can drop their remnants! balcony looks into neighbour’s bathroom window!
