Featured Garden: Balcony Garden: Colour Of LoveGB1

By AKa Designs & MBL Landscaping


Sink into the Hemingway chair and return to the Hollywood of yesterday.  An elegant oasis to enjoy as one or with many.  Surrounded by tropical plants and a patio pond, you’ll never want to leave this paradise.

AKa Designs in build partnership with MBL Landscaping presents… ‘The Colour of Love’

“I see your true colours, and that’s why I love you”. 

Sink into this oversized ‘Basket Club Chair’ and relax and enjoy what is all around you.  This cozy balcony is a perfect way to spend a day with a book or a night with friends and family.  Surrounded by the calm sounds of water, soft lighting and a tropical oasis, you can’t help but feel the love. 


Our Design Path………

It all started with the ‘Basket Chair’ from Casalife.  This is a case where you ‘want’ to put it all in one basket!  From there, soft wood tones surrounded by a tropical oasis and red florals inspired us the rest of the way.

Having the soft sounds of water surround you can make Balcony living a step above.  Include one of various options by Aquascape.  Bring all the sounds and plant life of outdoor ponds to any balcony garden.
Visit for a variety of sizes and colours to fit almost any space. 

Lighting in any space is key for enjoying an exterior space into the summer nights. Balcony living is no different, where adding some soft accent lights and lighting from below can create an ambiance like no other.

Think ‘Tropical’ as a great option for your balcony or container gardening.  The bonus when choosing tropical plants, they can go inside in the winter months, and back out again the next summer!!!

Adding a green wall or living art, in various sizes, is a perfect addition to any space.  The option to change the plants out seasonally, this versatile growing trend is one that can be added to enhance any space.
