Hey I could do this! (Name: Issy Eyre / Location: London, United Kingdom. I have a small balcony on my top floor flat which I have covered with beautiful soft fake grass and planted salads and scented flowers in old fruit crates)
I put in the wooden plates on the floor and covered the ugly fence with a reed "mat" found in a gardening store. I looked everywhere for a bench with storage (to keep planters, dirt and, well, softd rinks and beer), but no no avail. So I made one myself.
