TBI Blogs: 6 Ways to Turn Your Terrace into a Cool Garden This Summer

A well-designed terrace is like an oasis of calmness amid the hustle-bustle of busy city life. A terrace is the most overlooked corner of your house. It has great potential to be turned into a beautiful space for you to relax.

If given due importance, and with the expert eye of terrace garden designers, your terrace can be turned into a Personal Retreat where you can relax, read a book, and/or sit in front of a mesmerising waterfall with greenery in the background.

We are in the middle of summer. We can assure you that even during the harsh summers, a terrace garden can be turned into a functional space. All it needs is a few decor changes, and your terrace is summer-ready. Terrace designers can create such an aura for your terrace garden in a way such that it can waive off the harsh sun rays as well.

There are several styles that your terrace garden designer can choose from – modern, minimalist, chic, or retro.

There are many elements that are incorporated by terrace garden designers to make your terrace “Summer Friendly”:

1. Waterfall

It will be sheer luxury combined with relaxation. Terrace garden designers can design and construct a visually appealing terrace pool that will compliment the structure and load of your building.

3. Misting System

Misting systems are a must to keep your terrace cool and usable in the summers. A properly installed misting system will let the cool breeze encompass your entire terrace, making it breathable and functional in all aspects. With a misting system, you don’t need to worry about the scorching heat ruining the entire experience of a terrace.

4. Light Upholstery

Light shades and light-coloured fabrics are soothing to the eyes in summer. Your outdoor furniture should have light-coloured upholstery fabrics to make it appear summer-friendly.

5. Covered Sitting

A covered sitting on a terrace is like a gateway from the sun falling on you. You can either go in for permanently-covered sitting like a gazebo, or sitting with a retractable roof. A retractable roof can be installed under the supervision of terrace garden designers. It has a fabric shade which moves on rollers. You can easily roll out the fabric and get a covered sit-out on your terrace.

6. Save Your Plants

Your plants are the very essence of a terrace garden. It becomes inevitable to protect your flowering and green plants from the scorching heat. Add pebbles in the planters or pots to cover the soil. It increases the moisture absorption. You can also add water retaining granules to the soil.

All these features can be totally incorporated on your terrace in an aesthetic as well as functionally sound way by terrace garden designers.
