Transforming your outdoor space into a mini garden breathes new life into your surroundings. You can turn even the most minor areas into lush sanctuaries of greenery and tranquillity. Whether you’re working with a sprawling backyard or a cosy balcony, it’s going to be pretty fun. Cultivating your outdoor space allows you to reconnect with nature, unwind in serene surroundings, and infuse your living space with natural beauty. 

Here are a few ideas for transforming your balcony:

Having a Sturdy Foundation

The first step in transforming your outdoor area into a mini garden begins with laying a sturdy foundation. Nothing achieves this quite like FirmaDeck outdoor floor decking tiles. Engineered with durability in mind, FirmaDeck is able to withstand heat and the tropical climate of Singapore thanks to its combination of resin and wood fibre materials. Also known as Wood Plastic Composite (WPC), this composite decking can withstand rots, decays, and termites, and its water-resistant properties make it perfect for outdoor decking.

Utilise Your Fencing

Utilising your fencing is a strategic step in maximising the potential of your space as a mini garden. Don’t view your fencing as mere boundaries of your balcony floor decking. Consider them as vertical canvases that you can customise with greenery and charm. Vining plants such as jasmine or ivy can elegantly cascade along the length of your fence. 

Additionally, you can affix hanging baskets or trellises to the fencing. Doing this provides an opportunity to display a selection of succulents, herbs, or flowers. Thus adding layers of colour and texture to your outdoor garden.

Choose the Right Plants


It adds a refreshing scent to your garden and naturally deters pests; you can use it in cooking to add flavour.

Areca Palm

Bring tropical vibes with minimal effort—perfect for creating lush clusters in pots or directly in the ground.

Lucky Bamboo

This resilient plant symbolises prosperity and adapts well to various light conditions, making it an excellent choice for any garden setting.

Bird’s Nest Fern

Thriving in high humidity, these ferns require little care and add a touch of greenery to shady areas, perfect for Singapore’s climate.

Boston Fern
