City Gardens

Designing a city garden comes with a particular set of challenges. Size is a problem, of course: how do you deal effectively with those long, narrow plots typical of terraced houses? Fortunately we have plenty of ideas. Try our basic principles for gardening and landscape design for starters. As you search for inspiration, start with our beautiful gallery of city garden inspiration, and then move on to that city garden essential, ideas for patios and decking. If you're in the market for some new garden furniture once the patio is in place, our shopping guide is the perfect place to start, and there's plenty more where that came from, including guides to garden chairs, solar lights, and garden parasols, among other things. Perhaps you'd prefer to stick to a simple container garden? In that case, don't miss our gallery of cheerful plant pots. Whatever kind of garden you're designing, let the journey start here.
