Urban Living: Small City Garden Ideas

If you’re one of the thousands of people living in the urban jungle, you’ll know all about the struggle to create a beautiful, luscious garden. You may have lots of ideas, but very little space to execute them. However, it’s not all doom and gloom. In fact, fat from it. Small gardens have lots of advantages, including the ability to design an effortlessly cosy, homely space.  So, whether you’ve got a balcony or tiny patch of grass, here are some small city garden ideas for your home:  

De-Stress In A Hammock

Who says you need to be lounging on a beach to enjoy relaxing in a hammock? Transport yourself away with a hammock that can be squeezed into the smallest of spaces. It will instantly transform your garden into a chilled-out zone, perfect for relaxing after a long day at work.   

Plant Window Boxes

Save space with some simple window boxes to be tucked underneath your windowsill. There are a variety of plants that flourish in these types of conditions, such as primroses and petunias, as well as plenty of herbs to incorporate in your cooking. Simply push open the window and grab what you need!  

Try A Living Wall

Vertical gardens have transformed small city garden ideas, encouraging you to be more creative when it comes to your outdoor space. Whether you want to try planting in pots stacked on an upcycled bookshelf or some planting pockets on a wall for an array of flowers, vertical gardening is easier than it sounds.   

Dining Space For Two

If you’ve got the room, then bring the luxury of al fresco dining to your home with some outdoor furniture. All you need is a couple of comfortable chairs and a mini table to hold your drinks. The perfect place to enjoy the sunshine.  

Mini Greenhouse Planting

Even the cosiest of outdoor spaces may be able to fit a mini greenhouse for growing plants and vegetables. You can get a cabinet style greenhouse, which can be fixed in a position against a wall in a sunny spot outside.   

Put Up Some Shelves

Extra space on the floor can be saved with some shelving for your pots and garden accessories. Extra thick wooden shelves will be the most durable, especially when secured onto a brick wall. You can make your own or pick some up from your local DIY shop.   

Lay Down Some Gravel

If you’re a city dweller, you might not always have time to maintain your garden. Covering it in gravel alleviates a lot of garden work, including moving the lawn and de-weeding. It looks smart, contemporary and opens up the space for some plant pot gardening.

There’s no need to feel limited when you’ve got a city garden. If anything, it makes you more creative when trying to make the most of the space you’ve got!
