It’s time to destroy the myth that city dwellers don’t know gardening. Sure, a city garden may not be anything from Alice in Wonderland, but a balcony, tiny terrace, or even a fire escape can make a great home for an urban garden.
Here’s our 7 favorites that prove a gorgeous garden is feasible in any outdoor space, no matter its size or location!
7. The Private Urban Oasis Garden
This private terrace may be small but it’s just the right size for a strong collection of potted plants and outdoor elements. It’s clearly in the city but we wouldn’t mind sipping our coffee out here every morning before a busy day.
6. The Teeny-Tiny Hanging Garden
If you have almost no gardening space, an arrangement of hanging potted plants will give your space a little green. Hang them over a small balcony, a kitchen window, or even near the front or back door.
5. The Grid Spaced Delight Garden
This Brooklyn backyard is made over with a modernist aesthetic in mind. It’s appealing to any fan of symmetry, low-maintenance design, and viable strolling space.
4. The Mini Paradise of Green Garden
We’re feeling a little lost in paradise just looking at this lush city garden. It’s like a tropical jungle joined forces with a city patio to create a nature-heavy escape from the hustle and bustle of the typical urban landscape.
3. The Vertical Garden-Scape
Industrial brick meets lush succulents in this vertical hanging garden. If you have just a walls worth of space, this is the answer to your gardening woes.
2. The Rooftop Retreat Garden
Although the surrounding environment is clearly urban, this NYC rooftop is drowning in green. We can see ourselves whiling away the hours reading amongst this rich vegetation.
1. The Escape to Bohemia Garden
Rattan, tribal-patterned pillows, lush greenery, and a cup of tea make this the perfect bohemian garden escape within an urban setting.
