Seattle’s West Elm Provides all the Necessities for your Urban Gardening

Looking to spice up your home for the Spring season? The new trend in urban gardening is the indoor garden which will bring a small piece of the outdoors. It’s simple, affordable and innovative. All you need are a few items including something to hold your plants like a glass vase or planter, any desired plants, Terrarium soil mix, sand, river rocks and planting tools... oh and maybe a creative mind.

First, you will want to pick your plants; choose anything from desert succulents like aloe and echeveria to maiden- hair ferns. Next, you will need to make a foundation. If you are using desert plants, start with West Elm’s terrarium soil then add sand. If you are using ferns or other plants that require more water, use river rocks instead of sand to allow for drainage. Then, place your plants into your foundation and add pumice stones for added stability. Finally, include your own unique touch to finish the creation using garnishes like lichen and moss.

Seattle’s West Elm modern furniture and home décor store has everything you will need and more to complete your urban gardening experience to add some excitement to your home.   West Elm offers a wide array of products ranging from outdoor furniture to kitchen cookware. It is located in South Lake Union on Westlake Avenue.
