Create an outdoor room. As much as I love big expansive open spaces filled with flowers and greenery, I also adore the enclosed intimate space of an urban garden. If you don't get much sunlight or don't have a lot of planting area, create visual interest with texture, hardscaping, fencing, gravel, etc. In the city, space is often limited, and the living space we create outside can add a sense of much more square footage. Use outdoor furniture and accessories as you would decorate a room in your home. Don't be afraid to bring a few throw pillows and a table linen from inside for a special meal when the weather allows.
