5 small city garden ideas



It’s very likely that when you rented or bought your new house in the city, the garden was de biggest selling point. It doesn’t matter how big it is, just having a little piece of ‘outside’ that is yours is enough. A place to soak up the sun, take care of your flowers or grow your own fruit, veggies, or herbs. We’ll share 5 tips to make your small city garden the perfect cosy retreat.


Start with a plan

Before you’re going to redecorate your city garden, there are some choices you need to make. If you have limited space, think about what you’ll mostly use your garden for. Is it reading, a bit of gardening, having a drink with a few friends, or just having your own morning coffee? Next to defining functionality, decide on the colours you want to use. You might not paint your garden walls, but this will help you choose accessories, flowers, and plants.


Plants in pots

Instead of creating large plant borders, opt for flowers and plants in pots. Choose different sizes and group them together. Depending on the style of your garden, pick different colours and shapes. By grouping pots together, you’ll create an organized look in your city garden.

Designing your terrace

Large tiles are a great option for small city gardens, because they tend to make your garden look bigger. The colour of your terrace floor also impacts the way it looks. Go for light colours to brighten up your space.


Think vertical

City gardens with a small surface can benefit from vertical gardening solutions. Examples are a trellis fence with plants against it, small trees, a green (trimmed) hedge or a plant rack. By getting your plants off the floor, you create more seating or walking space.
