You should plant your terrace so that you can relax on it better
The garden, balcony and terrace play a very important role in our mental recovery. It is well known that the beautiful plants are irreplaceable for this. The monochromatic green relaxes your senses and helps you unwind on the patio after a stressful day. You can achieve this effect particularly well with hanging plants and plant species with plenty of foliage, which you can easily use in plant baskets. This is very practical, by the way, because you can move them again and again if you wish. So you can experiment with your beautiful plant basket decoration until you have achieved a perfect result.

Privacy and relaxation on the terrace
Don’t like the plant baskets? Would you rather have the plants grow straight out of the ground? You could use tall plant species around the patio. On the one hand, they serve to relax and, on the other hand, the green hedges fulfill a privacy function. Such multifunctional approach is very modern. Planting your patio in this way also blurs the lines between it and the outdoors.

Interesting combinations of plants and colors
What is going down very well in 2022 are interesting monochrome combinations of plants, as well as their textures and colors. Enjoy two or a maximum of three types of plants or flower colors. All of these should be done in subtle shades. Within the monochrome color palette, however, the various plant species were intended to achieve a gentle yet high-contrast dynamic. This works best, for example, by contrasting different textures, heights and even flower shapes. A specific example would be pairing lavender and hydrangea.
