There are many factors that play into a person's decision when they're shopping for real estate. Some want to live in a house because they enjoy the tranquility that comes from being around congested areas that most condos find themselves located in. Others love that hustle and bustle downtown feel and would rather live in a condo. Some feel like they need to live in a house because the condo lifestyle doesn't afford them to live their life the way they want to. That way of thinking is especially prevalent amongst those that consider themselves gardeners.

Gardeners, or gardening enthusiasts, mistakenly believe that living in Vaughan condos means that they can't grow a garden and that's simply not true. There are alternative methods of growing gardens if you live apartments instead of houses. It might not feel like a true garden that you would see planted in most normal backyards of houses but it would still be a garden nonetheless.

The easiest way to grow a garden if you live in a condo or even an apartment is to plant on your balcony, if you have one. A lot of condo owners will be living in a condo that has a patio area. Take a look at the size of the patio to see exactly how much room you have and then start designing your garden based on the space you have to work with.

You can then go to your local gardening store to pick out flowers, fruits, and vegetables to grow in your condo garden. There are many miniature versions of popular plants, fruits and vegetables that you can grow in your condo garden that won't take up as much space. As well, you can buy some flowers, herbs, fruits or vegetables that grow in planters or boxes and place those in your condo garden. Container gardens like that save a lot of space when you have so little room to work with.

Another suggestion we have is to see if you can combine plants. That makes gardening in your condos much more efficient and space saving. As you can see there are ways around growing a garden if you live in a condo that doesn't have a backyard like you would find in traditional properties. All you have to do is be a little creative.
