Do you live in an apartment with a balcony, fire escape or rooftop terrace? Most city dwellers neglect these spaces or use them for nothing more than hanging laundry and storing bicycles. And for a long time, so did I. Several years ago I decided to transform my under-used balcony from a lifeless concrete pad into a little garden in the sky.
