As usual we also share a gallery of images with some patterns in the design of the terraces that can help you. The first of these tips is wind protection. The location of the plants should avoid the direct incidence of wind gusts as much as possible. In the cases of coastal areas it is vital due to the salts that are transported in the air. With the passage of time they end up depositing on the leaves and burning them. There are variants such as polycarbonate sheets or other material with which you can create screens to protect the plants of the wind.

Another detail is to avoid overloading the terraces too much. We must take advantage of the walls to hang pots. Also select containers that are of low weight such as plastic or fiberglass. Play also with the choice of colors of these accessories, creating harmony between the terrace and the interior space. Use plants also of different sizes, it is a way to avoid monotony visually in space. If you have an area that allows it, insert some sculptural element. It will surely become an interesting attraction.
Planters for space delimitation
Something important is also the location of the plants. Locate the larger ones in the background and see the size decrease forward. This you can see graphically in some of the images of today's gallery. For situations of little space do not hesitate to place planters on the railings towards the outside. The selection is also important remember to value well the spaces of shade and sun with which you count. This will determine the species to be placed in each site. There are cases like Gitanillas that are full sun.

Others like the Love of Man or the Fuchsia also require sun. The cases of climbers, especially aromatic ones such as Jasmine or Honeysuckle, should be used on walls. You can also play with the volumes and forms. A selection of pyramidal or even spherical cup plants will create a very modern visual effect.

The terrace is a very peculiar space since it combines qualities of the interior and the garden. In her always elements of the garden are present in this case plants. But the design of the plants for the terrace is a great subject. If the house is next to the outdoor terrace in an interesting way, it can be further emphasized with pots with flowers on the edges. Here we show you some interesting tricks.

On the terrace you can also place containers of annual flowers suspended. Today, in the market we can find a large selection of containers and pots for the terrace, the garden or the balcony.
Location of trees according to size
It depends on us whether we are going to choose plastic boxes of various colors and shapes, which can be easily moved, as well as pots and hanging baskets. It is more convenient that, the containers should not be bulky, so that they can move easily and so that you can create different compositions if you please. In this case, you will be able to update the design of your terrace, at least a couple of times during the season.

If the pots are too heavy, then you can choose ones that are attached to small wheels. When selecting a pot or container better than its depth is not less than 25-28 cm, and have a hole for water drainage. Our advice when planting your plants is that at the bottom of the box put the gravel at least 2 cm thick, on the top - 3 cm of sand and then - the top layer can put the soil for plants.
Inclusion of sculptural element
Between the ground and the edges of the pot leave 2-3 cm away. Of course, it is not necessary to create a "jungle" on the terrace, what we want is a design inspired by beauty and comfort. The plants should not interfere with the movement on the terrace and hinder your guests as they try to reach the space for rest and leisure that you have created.
Creation of colorful terrace
On the small terrace we may be obliged to limit ourselves with just a trellis or hanging plants that do not take up much space. But if space allows, you can arrange on the terrace and a small garden. When choosing the plants for the decoration of terraces should be guided by common rules. Choose the plants according to their climate, as well as the light that the terrace receives in the different parts of the day.
