How to create your green space in 5 easy steps

do you have a corner at home that you don't know how to decorate? do you dream of having a corner where you can take dreamy photos for your social media? does your life lack colour? Well, the answer to all these questions is simple: you need to create a green space. Before you run to Be.Green to buy all the plants your heart desires, we will show you the keys to create a green space in just a few steps.

The idea of having a corner at home where plants are the protagonists has become a real trend, especially in these turbulent times. Just search Instagram with the hashtag #jungalow and you'll find thousands of photos to inspire you. The reasons to create your own little piece of urban jungle are multiple: from having an aesthetically pleasing space, a place to de-stress or a refuge indoors; but everything points to the comforting effect that being in contact with nature provides.

where do I start?

  • Location, location, location:

The first step is to decide where you are going to locate your green space, if you have to choose from prefer a place with plenty of light, but if that's not possible, no problem. Then you are going to take note of features such as lighting, temperature, whether there are windows, whether there are drafts, whether it is close to air conditioning or heating; the size of the space (much better if you measure it).

Also take into consideration your lifestyle, if you are a frequent traveller, if you are forgetful, if you have a pet, among other details. These characteristics are what will allow you to choose the right plants, which will not die in a short time just because they cannot adapt to the environment.

  • Variety is the spice of life:

You already have everything you need to know about the space, so you can enter our shop and use the smart search engine to find the plants that suit the environmental conditions of your corner. You can choose by characteristics such as level of care, lighting, size and properties, such as whether it is suitable for your pet.

My recommendation is to buy plants in odd numbers, as they tend to look much better. Look for plants that are easy to care for, so you don't get frustrated and get used to looking after them. It is also highly recommended to buy plants of different heights. This will add dimension to the space.

For example, you can buy a Kentia Palm (tall), an Amazonian Alocasia (medium) and a Wild Aloe (small), which can be placed on the floor or on some furniture, and the colours of their leaves are varied, so they will look stunning. If your style is more minimalist, you can buy a Sanseviera, an Alocasia Elephant Ear and a Ficus Robusta, which have simpler lines and allow you to play with the dimensions.

  • Better in a group:
One of the secrets to creating a green space that doesn't turn into an empty corner in a few weeks lies in choosing the right plants and keeping them grouped together. Plants, even though they may be of different species, should require similar care. This will allow you to establish common watering and care patterns, so you will spend less time caring for them and trying to adapt to their needs.

You could put together a Lemon Dracaena, a Monstera and a Kentia palm, all of which require indirect light, moderate watering and normal humidity levels. They will also look great, as they will give you a pleasing atmosphere, with their lush leaves and imposing height. Perfect for a very summery living room.

Having plants together not only gives you an immediate visual impact, but also creates a particular micro-climate that will keep the humidity and environmental conditions in balance, which is very beneficial for your plants. Having them grouped together also gives this feeling of lush nature, greenery and freshness.

  • Personalise your corner

Every place has its own characteristics, its own magic and you have to find it. If you bought your plants with Be Green, they should be on your doorstep within 24 hours and you can get down to my favourite part: personalising the space. You can use decorative pots of different textures, colours and materials, and you can also add coffee tables, a chair to sit on to read or have a cup of coffee.

Use books, scented candles, rugs and anything else you can think of. This is the moment to let your creativity run wild and make the place your own by leaving your mark, showing what you like and what makes you happy. Remember that green space is a harmonious place, where you will be recharged with good vibes and the power of nature.

  • Tools and accessories

This last step is optional, but I like these little everyday tools to be integrated into the green corner. A nice sprayer in your favourite colour, a nice and stylish watering can, maybe a set of scissors and sticks, which you will need over time to take care of your plants. Having nice tools also motivates you to always pay attention to the needs of your little green friends.

Accessories such as shelves, tables and hanging or raised planters can also be very useful when it comes to making the most of the space and making it more efficient. This part can be acquired and transformed over time, as you add more plants to your little oasis of well-being.

I assure you that the green space will become your favourite place. If you create your own, take a picture and tag us on social media, we'd love to see it!
