What is a (sub)urban garden


  • Some urban dwellings are row homes and individual plot homes that have small garden space behind their home.
  • It is an urban home with perhaps a (sub)urban garden for landscape and privacy.
  • These urban homes generally do not have much space that seperates you from your neighbor – so what landscaping ideas can you use to spruce up your urban garden?
  • One idea is get rid of the grass and convert the urban space into a rock garden and patio.
  • So what’s the advantage For one, no more mowing or upkeeping a small patch of lawn. Second, with a tier rock garden – using lighting – you have a nice backyard setting that you will enjoy. And third, you can use your landscaped area for entertaining and picnicing.

When you have a little width


  • Some urban homes may have a little width between neighbors.
  • Your plot depth may be narrow – but the extra width allows you to landscape a patio and some grassy area.
  • It’s a nice area to have to do some “green” landscaping with some nice shrubbery and flowers.
  • What else can you do? This nice patch of lawn allows you an afternoon playing lawn games with your family and friends. What a nice way to spend a weekend – with a BBQ picnic on the patio and a game of croquet on the lawn.

How about a deck living area


  • You may be looking for more living space within your urban home.
  • But given the closeness of your neighbors and zoning regulations, you are limited in extending out your living room area.
  • How about converting your urban garden into a deck living area – complete with a sofa, chairs and table.
  • It’s another room without a roof Your deck living area is just like another room – perfect for those cool summer days and warm spring and fall nights. Add a fire pit for fire – install an outside fan for cool the air – and setup a patio heater to give warmth as needed.

When space is really tight and less private


  • If your urban garden space is tight and close together (with limited privacy) or borders a public access area, think of a landscaping idea that you would do anyway in public.
  • For example your enjoyment eating at a restuarant and bisto place.
  • So convert your urban space into a dining area – who cares if someone walks by – it’s like being at a urban restuarant.
  • Who knows – you might meet new friends With your dining area close to others, you might come across new friends who stop to chat over the boundary fence. You may want to invite them over for a cold drink and snack.

For those urban homes who have less than ….


  • That is less than a tiny space to call your urban garden – not much to do any landscaping except a bistro table with potted plants.
  • So convert your backyard urban space into a classic bistro area for food and enjoyment.
  • Use this an an example This image is actually an European dining area. But is conveys an idea on what you can do with your small space. Just think of this look with just one table – two potted plants – wall torch lamp – and some decor that says something that makes this your own unique restuarant and dining area.
