Urban & City Garden Designs
The challenge of a city or urban garden is often limitations of space and the need to create a private and tranquil space amongst the hustle and bustle of the city.
At Floral & Hardy we have plenty of experience with small urban gardens as well as expertise in roof garden design so we can bring lots of ideas to the table.

This roof terrace has spectacular views over interesting surrounding buildings, including the Natural History Museum, but the inhospitable, exposed, sloping space made entertaining and relaxing difficult.
This is a large roof terrace wrapping around three sides of a modern city apartment in Camden, North West London.
This is the roof terrace to a property in Holland Park.
Our first concern with this garden was to give our clients the security and privacy they needed but as this was a listed building, we had first to approach the local council for permissions.
The owner of this small courtyard garden is a musician who spends much of his time travelling, he therefore needed a low maintenance scheme, but with the ‘wow’ factor to welcome him home.
Our clients wanted to transform this urban wasteland into a low maintenance outside space where they could entertain, party and relax. They wanted some greenery, including a small lawn and plenty of colour.
A steep staircase with high risers and narrow treads down from the drawing room made this a potentially treacherous space for the children, or adults alike, as well as taking up garden space.
This was the tiny garden to a terraced Victorian house belonging to a young family.Coming from Australia, our couple really missed the outside space for barbecuing and entertaining.
This garden was on two levels with a small well area outside the basement kitchen.
This garden had previously been designed with a series of ‘rooms’ to disguise the length and narrowness of the plot.
Our clients wanted an elegant dining area making the best use of the space and in a style in keeping with the property and its interiors.
Specialist small urban garden designs
When you design an urban garden you look initially at the space, at the surroundings and then consider the potential - how can we make the most beautiful transformation possible? The use of planting and sculpture, natural stones and brickwork can lead to an aura of space and timeless tranquillity, where before there was just a space ready to be changed.
Whether you are seeking to design an urban garden that will be used for your share of peace and quiet or as a space to entertain your friends, you can be sure that Floral & Hardy have the ideas and experience to make it happen!
