This predilections of the owners themselves, and the location of the terrace. After all, someone loves to care for flowers, and someone needs plants that require almost no care.If large trees grow around the house and the terrace is shaded, then it is better to plant flowers less so as not to create an even greater shadow. Access to the garden can be arranged in flowers in pots.
