An aerial view of a dude who has made the most out of his postage-stamp sized yard.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 6 Tips From Great Urban Gardens
In the city we're often sandwiched tightly between our neighbors. Rather than letting this be a liability, use fencing, plantings, or the walls of the buildings on either side to create an enclosed sanctuary and secret garden feeling.
Frank Organ added this to Give Your Small Garden Some Room
Softening the outlines. Once the structure is set, plants can soften outlines and hard edges, and add color and year-round interest. The plants in this scheme cleverly add to the formal paved design without overriding or hiding it.
Get creative with urban gardens. City neighborhoods are seeing edible gardens springing up everywhere from rooftops and fire escapes to postage stamp backyards and community spaces. Greening up the city is a wonderful way to eat local, to be sure, but less obviously, it is also a boost to air quality. Even if you have room for only a few pots on the balcony or windowsill, choosing to add a few potted edibles can make a difference, adding fresh air to your home and fresh greens to your table.
