Wild in the City

Hello again!  It’s Victoria Day weekend and the official start of planting season so my post today will feature urban gardens.  Even though the weather is still pretty cold here for gardening, as we have pretty much just gotten through the worst winter ever, I can confidently say that people are out and about planning their gardens this year.  Living in the city normally doesn’t lend to large yards but there are such great ways to enjoy them by incorporating patios, flowers, vegetables, plants, trees, stones, boxes, fountains, walkways, furniture, lights and/or feeders.  My favourite is the wild urban garden – no grass please!

Here are some great examples of modern gardens for city yards:

Wild gardens bring a little bit of nature in a big, concrete city; not to mention peace and serenity.  It’s the type of garden I dream to have one day – wild in the city 🙂

Happy Victoria Day weekend everyone!
