The west-facing Balcony is Perfect for a cozy Sundowner
The west-facing balcony is sunny in the early afternoon and the perfect place to enjoy the last rays of sunshine after work yet. It is planted with plants that accumulate in the evening for maximum shape and inspire with bright flowers or delicate fragrances.
Checklist west balcony
Suitable plants: Plant for the penumbra. White and yellow plants light up even in twilight. The larger and more lush, the flowers, like lilies and petunias, the more light they reflect. Scented plants for the evening : ornamental tobacco, Angel’s Trumpet, dame’s violet, miracle flower or evening primrose.
Our tip for the West Balcony furniture made of metal or metal parts can still be uncomfortably hot even on the west balcony, as the late afternoon sun in summer can again accumulate in top form. However, plants should then be protected from the sun.
Main accessories: parasol, cozy and cushioned patio furniture for your evening, lanterns and a table for the after-work cocktail. Heavy planter and balcony safe box brackets, because on the west-facing balcony it can be windy. Where permitted, a small grill should not be missed.
