I have just moved into my new place and would like do up my 8m long balcony
My unit has the following characteristics

1) it is facing main road
2) it is unblocked hence may have strong wing occasionally
3) it face morning sun . Excellent sun rise view
4) it has invisible grilles for child safety

I have been to a few nursery at punggol and kovan for ideas

Most recommended raphis palm , murraya , heliconia . But I google seem like big leave plants filter sound better and the recommended plant are small leaves or elongated leave

Also some recommend single plant while some suggest 2 flower plant + 1 big leave plants or 2 big leave plants and 1 flowering plant every 1.5-2m. Suggestion and research tend to side peace lily as flowering plants and daniellii as the big leave plant

Any suggestion ?

Murraya can be grown to become very bushy and if you grow a few of these and pack them close together that might help.

The tabernaemontana africana has very big leaves and can be very bushy too. It also has very fragrant flowers.
