There's so much we can do with a planter in a balcony than to deck over it completely.
It can be used as RESERVOIR to irrigate the plants where water tap is missing at the balcony.

I'm an ASSET of the balcony NOT A LIABILITY.
Balcony = Extended Living Space
Make the best of it! You don't know how many people is drooling over a space like this!
