Create the feel - The perfect urban walled garden

So, you want to create the perfect urban garden

Don't let the smaller space deter you – with options ranging from a circular patio and plant wall to carpet stones with a traditional aesthetic, you can create a little urban sanctuary in even the tiniest walled garden with the right paving slabs and a bit of forward-thinking.

Here are some of our top tips for creating a city garden that can turn a small patch of land into domestic paradise:

  • Get rid of the clutter. Clear the area completely so you can see how much space you've got to work with.
  • Dedicate some time to planning. Think about the type of garden you want – considering other key factors such as the sunlight available.
  • Architectural is in. Don't let a lack of soil hold your garden design back. Let your landscaping materials do the talking with different colours, clean lines and textures to add real visual interest.
  • Make the most of your features. Take advantage of walls by using creeping plants such as vines, trained up trellis or wire mesh.
  • No soil doesn't have to mean no planting. Urban greenery is simple and accessible with attractive containers and pots.
  • Sometimes, simple is best. Consider one stand-out feature container or water feature to create that all-important focal point.

  • Creative lighting helps set the mood without needing any upheaval.
  • Choose the right plants. Architectural plants like pampas grass create a sense of drama and intrigue.
  • Porcelain Paving is available in a range of sizes that can help to accentuate the space with clean long lines.
  • Bradstone Smooth Sandstone Paving makes co-ordination of accessories easy. Try mixing neutrals like warm beige and grey. Splashes of statement colours within your accessories add great contrast to your garden theme.
  • Kerbs and shaped edging create surrounding borders with that cared for look, while requiring low maintenance.
  • Planters are another way to add a green touch. They need little upkeep and can be replanted to keep the look fresh and seasonal.
