Even the smallest of balconies can be transformed into a beautiful place to relax. This can easily be done using a variety of plants and flowers, miniature ponds, garden furniture and fairy lights.

Hanging baskets and pots designed for fastening onto balcony railings are perfect to get you started. Bamboo can also be used to create additional privacy.

For those that enjoy growing their own vegetables but have a very limited space, a vertical herb garden could be ideal, with trellis and climbing plants.

Whether you want a contemporary, modern, rustic or flower filled garden, the following stunning balconies should give you some inspiration, with ideas for even the smallest of juliets.
