Container-grown plantings are your friend when adding greenery to a terrace or balcony. “When you use typical landscape plants in pots or containers you’ll see them very differently than when they are planted in the ground,” says landscape designer Jeffery Erb. “You’ll see all the details up close and notice textures, vein patterns, the colors on the undersides of the leaves and more. So I like to use a minimal selection of plants in a small terrace or patio because it creates a more calm and serene environment — just what we need in the chaos of a city.” Erb advises choosing slow-growing cultivars that won’t outgrow their pots too quickly.
Outdoor living doesn't get more extraordinary than this: The penthouse comes complete with two massive, landscaped and irrigated terraces that offer panoramic views north, south, east and west with large entertaining spaces and a one-of-a-kind elevated planter system.

The goal with this backyard in Hoboken, New Jersey? Create a low-maintenance, open and budget-friendly outdoor space for a busy family. The bluestone patio was enlarged and seating added, but plenty of running around space was left for the kids.
