Urban Garden Design Ideas
Article by Richard Rowson
In cities where space is very limited, there are still many ways to create gardens that you can consider as another useful and beautiful part of your home. Even if you have a very small area that you can use to transform into a garden, you can have one that fits your preference and lifestyle. Before your start, make sure you plan carefully in order to maximise every available space that you have.
Keep in mind that you have a very limited area to work on so every item you place in your garden must have its own purpose in the overall design, whether it be looks or functionality. The tiniest details will work together to make a garden that is pleasing to the eye. Here are some urban garden design ideas to help you have a modern, stylish and cool garden in the city.
Have you ever thought of using mirrors to integrate into your garden and create an illusion of having a bigger space? There are mirrors that are weather resistant so that they can stand the harsh environment of the outdoors and you don’t have to worry about it breaking. You can even use it to reflect additional light into areas of your garden where there is a little too much shade.
If there is a need for you to paint any part of your garden such as fences, trellises or walls, make sure you use light colored ones to make the plants stand out. Similarly, feel free to use pots or pieces of furniture that are lighter in color. Small pieces of art or sculptures can also be integrated into your urban garden, as it will stand out among the plants and landscaping.
Use vertical space effectively by using plants that grow upwards. There are trellises or teepees that you can use as walls where these plants can thrive and you can also use posts of all sizes, styles and shapes where vines can grow. This adds more green to your garden, especially if you want to use the available space for a dining table or other seating area.
Another great idea to consider when designing your urban garden is to make sure that the lighting is focused on all the right places. This will give the garden a very modern and cool ambiance while giving the whole area enough illumination to bring out particular features.
There are many more ideas you that you can use for your urban garden design. Your own imagination is the only limit you have, so put your creativity forward and get that contemporary and cool garden that you have been wanting.
