Using LXC containers to deploy applications in Droplets

I plan to experiment with web applications using various technologies. For an example, I'd like to test NodeJS, Laravel on Apache, Laravel on Nginx and so on.

I would like sandboxes for my experimentations and I think LXC containers are the way to go.

How would you consider running several (5-6) LXC containers on a Droplet with 1 GB RAM?

Both host and guest are Ubuntu.

I created a LXC container and installed Apache and PHP. The directory that contains the container now weighs at 1 GB (872 MB precisely.).

Is this a path you'd take?
