A few adventurous and creative friends have gotten together to bring some sunshine into your otherwise ignored or empty balcony or terrace!
The folks at My Sunny Balcony (MSB) can suggest how to transform an empty forlorn space into a veritable green heaven…
I was surprised when I walked in to Aqua’s house on Sunday after the MSB folks worked their wonders. Her outside garden space which had one plant and a few pebbles around it had undergone a complete makeover and looked like a million dollars!
Complete with the sound of soothing water, a herb garden and beautiful terracotta pots, it was quite a sight. Aqua and I stared at her â€œgreenâ€ space for the longest time and plans are now afoot to get a bench just in the right spot from where one can stare out into the garden! It’s amazing how therapeutic a little green in your life can be 🙂
So, folks : if you have a balcony going to waste and looking utterly dejected : all you have to do is call up the folks at My Sunny Balcony. Most of us living in flats have this experience of letting our balconies turn into storage spaces or worse still, lie empty.
This is what the team has to say: “Any space that receives even a little bit of sunlight is a potential MySunnyBalcony space: A tiny unusable patch outside your front door, an ugly terrace on your roof, or even a back balcony in your high rise apartment. It doesn’t matter how high up or small your space is, we’ll work with it. We’ll also tell you what you can do and what you can’t. You’ll be surprised at the immense number of green possibilities that even a tiny amount of space can hold!”
More in their words: â€œWelcome to MySunnyBalcony! We’re a group of garden enthusiasts dedicated to creating customized landscapes for urban environments. With almost no space left in the city for home gardens, we’ve decided to take our gardens up the elevator and into your balconies and terraces. We do concept gardens, designer balconies and terrific terraces. We have a host of theme balconies to choose from, based on your lifestyle and interests. Just tell us what you want and we’ll try and make it possible for you. A little herb or veggie patch that looks as fabulous as it tastes? Sure! A sunny spot with flowers bursting out from every corner? Why not? Or perhaps a tranquil zen-style space to contemplate in? With a quiet fountain gurgling away in the background? You got it!â€
Athreya, Reena, Shailesh and Sriram : the foursome who have started this unique initiative are very hands on : they will come by and provide you with what you need to do to get a super looking balcony in a jiffy! And they still do everything themselves : so this is the right time to catch them : before they become famous and have assistants doing the work 🙂
And it won’t be long before that happens : they’ve already been covered in DNA, 080 and other newspaper articles.
This is a labour of love for these guys and the stunning makeovers they already created are testimony to the hard work they put in so that your space looks like a million dollars!
