A rooftop garden always takes everyone’s breath away

Notes:

  • If you are lucky enough to live in an apartment with your own rooftop, you already have all the space you need for creating the garden of your dreams. Now you just need to choose the elements with which to adorn your garden.
  • If you are living in NYC, then you will certainly have plenty of inspiration as this metropolis is known as the city of impressive rooftop bars, restaurants, and gardens. And that’s one of the advantages of settling down in Brooklyn or another NYC borough – you will get a chance to use the NYC’s trademark for your own home.
  • Finally, place the pots of flowers that soothe you the most and voila – you get a rooftop garden that will be the envy of the neighborhood, not to mention your oasis of peace when you are in need of some.

Feel like a world-traveler with a Japanese garden 

Notes:

  • Whether you have a townhouse with a garden, a condo with a rooftop or a decent-sized terrace, all you need is a bit of imagination. The best part about the most amazing urban garden ideas is that they are not focused on a single setting. Instead, they can be incorporated in many different areas. Think about a terrace with flowering dogwood branches spilling across the tables, chairs, and benches. The Japanese maples are there to complete the look of your Zen-garden.
  • Take a Japanese garden as an example. Although do bear in mind that you need to consider a few things before planting a tree near your house, such as their purpose and maintenance. And if you are not in the mood for planting a tree or simply can’t because you don’t live on the ground floor, you can have a bonsai tree potted and still achieve the effect of a traditional Japanese garden.
  • When it comes to the patio furniture, it can be made out of any material you prefer and it can match the rest of the house or be made in the style of traditional Japanese pieces. Whatever will bring the most Zen to you is what you should focus on.

Modern times call for modern urban garden ideas

Notes:

  • Do you love a clean, minimalistic living space? If you want your urban garden to match the modern interior of your home, all you have to do is have a bit of imagination. Or you can hire a designer that has the right vision and can help you create the garden of your dreams.
  • Whether you will do best with pros or in the good old DIY style depends on you. The point is that you can have a modern garden that will match the interior of your house.
  • Start things off with artificial grass that will hopefully achieve a serene look. Then, work your way to a marble patio set that can include chairs and a table.
  • To achieve that look of togetherness, you can create your garden as an extension of your modern, white living room. Add a few bamboo plants and you will have a perfect garden that will match the rest of your house.

Create a blooming oasis

Notes:

  • Sometimes, you don’t need much to create perfection. Take the typical notion of a garden as an example. You are thinking about being surrounded by greenery such as flowers, trees, bushes, etc.
  • But we are talking about ideas for urban gardens, meaning you probably don’t have an entire backyard at your disposal. Luckily, you won’t need one to create the same type of oasis in your NYC apartment.
  • Do you have a terrace or a rooftop? Then all you need is one solitary chair and flower pots galore. Let your imagination go wild and feel free to buy every single plant that you want – from daisies to petunias and everything in between.
  • In this case, the more the merrier rule applies! Pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit in your chair and enjoy a beautiful summer sunset.

The darker look may not suit everyone’s taste

Notes:

  • But there are certainly those who will find it to be perfect for their likes and preferences because not everything in life has to be butterflies and rainbows. And that’s what an artful black fence surrounding your terrace will do – create a darker look that you might love.
  • Top that off with raised beds of boxwood and ivy, antique stones filled with moss and a few antique chairs in a very dark color. You will achieve a gloomy look that, surprisingly, still brings an unusual sense of peace. 
  • So do you find any of these urban garden ideas appealing? Then you know what to do. Choose something that suits your personal style and pay some consideration to space and budget at hand.
  • Once everything is done and you can finally relax in your peaceful oasis, you will be glad you took the time out of your day to make it happen.
