Bring the Outdoors In with an Indoor Garden!

When you own a condo at the Lake of the Ozarks, there are numerous perks that come with the purchase of your condo! At Isla Del Sol, we offer several amenities such as private island living, panoramic lake views, lakeside pool, a dog walking area, spacious living, and more! With all of these wonderful amenities, owning a condo is extremely enticing! Even though you'll never have to worry about taking care of exterior maintenance again, you may miss the relaxation gardening gives you. Even though you may not be able to have a huge garden outdoors, you can still put your green thumb to work with an indoor garden at your Lake of the Ozarks condo! Read on for some creative ideas to bring the outdoors in with an indoor garden!

Plant Vertically 

Condo living can sometimes mean limited square footage for gardening both indoors and out, so make the most of the space you have by thinking vertically. Fill a bookshelf and decorate it with potted plants. To give your home a little more of an outdoorsy feel, repurpose pallets into wall gardens for your living room. This will not only create a colorful and relaxing environment but will also second as a conversational piece when you have guests over. Include similar potted plants to your end tables to tie it all together.

Add Color!

Add color to all of your rooms by stationing fun potted plants and vases with freshly-picked bouquets of flowers around your condo. Select plants and flowers that tie in with other colors in the room. For example, if you have a favorite piece of art deco displayed in your dining room, and really want to draw out the reds and yellows to make it pop more, place an arrangement of zinnias or roses in an eye-catching yellow planter as your dining table centerpiece. If you have fun patterned throw pillows you want to display in your guest room but are afraid they'll stick out like a sore thumb, create a flow of color that will enhance the pillows by putting a plant of similar color on the nightstand or dresser. In your kitchen, you can bring some outside in by growing your own herbs and displaying them on a window sill or add shelving to store them as part of your decor.

Utilize The Balcony

Why shouldn't your balcony double as a garden? Luckily, our condominiums at the Lake of the Ozarks have a beautiful covered outdoor space. Planters filled with patio, mini or dwarf roses will provide colorful blooms all summer long. Utilize the railings around your balcony to hang planter baskets. This will not only eliminate the use of precious patio floor space but will also create a natural break between your outdoor living room set and your view of the condo complex. For a more easily transferable solution for your patio, you can add casters to your planters for quick and easy mobility.

Bring The Outside In

As you can see there are several ways to implement an indoor garden in your condo. Just remember, the purpose of an indoor garden is to bring the outside in and create a fun and inviting ambiance to your home. Don't forget to care for your indoor plants properly to ensure that they're looking their best at all times. Wherever you choose to show off your plants in your home, you'll want to make sure there's lots of windows and sunlight for ample growth of your plants. If your condo doesn't offer many options for direct sunlight, consider synthetic lighting options. The best part about indoor gardening is the ability to control your plant's environment to produce the most beautiful plants and flowers.

Just because you live in a condo doesn't mean you can't enjoy gardening! The best part about indoor gardening is you can enjoy doing it all year long!  What are you waiting for, now is the perfect time to invest in a condo at the Lake of the Ozarks! We invite you to discover a new path to your island getaway right here at Isla Del Sol Condominiums at the Lake of the Ozarks.

If you're planning on being at the Lake this weekend for the Pub Crawl, be sure to stop by our condominiums at the Lake of the Ozarks. We give tours of our model units daily from 10 am to 4 pm. When you own a second home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you never have to miss another event! We'd love to show you around our private island so you can see what living the lake life is all about!

Lake of the Ozarks is the BEST Recreation Lake in the US!

According to a poll in USA Today, the Lake of the Ozark is the BEST Recreational Lake in the U.S.A! Here at Isla Del Sol, we couldn't agree more! The Lake of the Ozarks has so much to offer especially if you love enjoying the great outdoors and being active. Lake of the Ozarks has more than 1,000 miles of shoreline which is more than the coast of California! If you've never visited us here at the Lake, our condominium complex at the Lake of the Ozarks has a few reasons why Lake of the Ozarks is the best recreational lake!

Boating & Water Sports

One of the main things that drive people to the Lake of the Ozarks is, of course, the Lake! Who doesn't enjoy being out on the water with friends and family? Some great on-water activities that you can enjoy when you're at the Lake are boating, fishing, kayaking, water skiing, and much more! There's no shortage of things to do on the water around here - and what's even better is that you can even enjoy some great entertainment at the waterfront bars and restaurants!

Offshore Activities

While the main attraction is on the water, there is still plenty to do offshore as well. The Lake of the Ozarks offers some of the best shopping around. Besides shopping, we also have several family-friendly activities, such as a water park, 2 State Parks, an indoor trampoline park, and even an escape room! Trust us when we say your family will not run out of activities to do here!


With over 12 golf courses to choose from, no wonder why the Lake of the Ozarks is known as the best golfing vacation location in Missouri! Whether you just play for fun, or enjoy the competition that year-round tournaments offer, we've got a little bit of golf fun for everyone. We've even got several putt putt golf spots around the Lake for families of all ages to enjoy!

Live Music

Did we mention live music? The Lake is a great place to experience all kinds of live music! From country to rock, to an eclectic mix, you're bound to find something you'll like at the Lake just about every weekend of the Summer! And many local restaurants and bars offer fun activities like karaoke and host DJ's for fun dance parties on the water.

Wining & Dining

The Lake of the Ozarks is THE place for wining and dining! Whether you prefer the serene ambiance of waterfront fine dining or enjoy a more lively atmosphere with live music and a casual feel, we've got something for everyone's taste. And there are several wineries in the area so you can make a weekend out of just checking out the local wineries if that's your thing!
