Living in the middle of a city where space is tight and every square millimetre costs the eyes of the head and having a garden is what we call being a lucky first-class person! Are you one of those privileged few?
So Do you have one?
The same applies to terraces, patios or urban balconies. You need special know-how to maintain your urban garden properly. The fact is that the size is often small, besides, often you have opposite or opposite buildings, and these are factors to consider to ensure that your garden is in the best shape all year round. The important thing is to know the adapted plants and use clever arrangements. And then you will have a piece of paradise in your home. So how do we make this arrangement?
Use your imagination
If your garden is rather small, even tiny, it is even more precious! So the first thing you have to do is to free yourself from the people across the street who can make your garden suffer. How can this be achieved? Obstruct the boundaries of your garden because it is always unpleasant to have the eyes of your neighbours at home. An opaque fence is the most suitable, perhaps made of wood. The advantage of wood is that it can easily be combined with all styles. But if you prefer aluminium, it’s just as well, because it offers many colours to choose from. To make the result as cocoon as possible, why not plant beds around it? Those with persistent and dense foliage are the best, think of bamboos or andromeda, they have the advantage of reinforcing the opacity of the fence but they are also beautiful! For your terrace or balcony, use trellises or privacy screens instead. You have all the freedom to hang hangers or climbing plants on it. And to hide from the looks of your neighbours who are high up, choose a pergola or a shade sail. Since your urban garden is not very spacious, go at will on climbing plants such as climbing roses, wisteria, star jasmines. With their wonderful flowers, this is what you need to beautify your garden!
Why not opt for permaculture?
For your garden in town, have you ever thought about permaculture? This does not require a lot of space, which is perfect. Choose plants that you can squeeze close together. For example, basil and carnation that you will plant near tomatoes, fennel near carrots, etc. Draw vegetable squares to make it easier and simpler. Such plants keep aphids and flies away and repel them from such other plants and you will harvest vegetables and peas that you have planted, it is only a benefit!
