How to Create a City Garden

More so than a large landscape garden, city gardens should be approached as if they are another room of the house. Small and cosy, they are often intimate little spaces, and should be approached as such.

Most garden spaces in a city are small, and trying to make them appear larger, for the illusion of grandeur, is futile. So you would be better served purposefully keeping it small and intimate. Therefore, when looking for decorations always keep the term ‘cosy’ in mind.

When space is limited it makes more sense to plant things using horizontal lines, rather than circles. This means you will be able to use every square inch without having any dead space. Also, don’t be scared of going vertical. Having rows of bushes, or even some short trees, will help create that cosiness we are seeking. They will also help lend a sense of privacy, something which is often missing in a city garden.

On the subject of trees, unless you are willing to put in the work it is probably best to avoid fruit bearing trees. If the fruit that has fallen is not collected and used/disposed of promptly you risk attracting vermin to the area.

With regards to plants always go for colourful, hardy plants, such as Nigella Damascena, which can still bloom in a polluted city environment. We also recommend planting plenty of herbs if you can, especially near where you’ll be sitting, purely for the smells. One trick is to plant lavender right by the door to your garden, then every time you walk outside you’ll brush against it and release some of its odour.

When choosing furniture for your city garden always go for quality and sturdiness. Not only does this make sense fiscally (buy cheap, buy twice…) but if it is good quality then it will weather and age well, lending it personality and helping to finish the feeling of cosiness you are seeking.
