OUTDOOR LIVING IN THE CITY
Having a garden in the city means you’re already luckier than most, but it takes careful consideration to make a small urban garden work as you want it to.
Urban garden design is one of the fastest-growing styles in the industry. As our cities grow and space comes at a premium, we are working with smaller and smaller gardens, in less natural surroundings. For all its challenges, it gives you the opportunity to create a rare oasis amidst the hustle and bustle, and a chance to forget where you are in the world.
Whether it’s the square footage to relax after a day in the office, or an open area to entertain guests after a long week at work, urban garden design is primarily an extension of the home. It also often calls for low maintenance solutions, with many urban dwellers living a busy lifestyle. Most of our urban clients want an outdoor space that will look good with minimal effort, throughout all times of the day, night and year. But don’t mistake low maintenance for low personality, there are hundreds of varieties of plants with striking beauty which require little to no effort. Hardy flora and bold, selective choices can inject an explosion of colour and scent to the middle of the city – without you having to dust off the watering can and pruning shears every weekend.
