Living in an urban area can be challenging environmentally. Not only you have so few decent green spaces, but the air quality can also risk your health every day. Another issue is how to have a decent outdoor space for your urban home.
With the right landscaping ideas,it is possible to have a gorgeous space outside your urban home. Take a look at some ideas below.
1. Have a trellis-lined gravel path
Have the back lot like this: the walls on each side of the narrow path should be lined with trellis for aesthetic purpose. With climbing plants and a gravel path, this outdoor space will look absolutely gorgeous.
Matte-black works like an outline to emphasise doors and window ledges. With a window box and lush green in your small front yard, you can impress people even before they step into your house. It looks classic and gorgeous.
No proper yard, since you live in an apartment or a town house? No problem. If possible, maximize the rooftop as your outdoor space in your urban home. If it is impossible to grow proper plants (and look after them every day), there is always fake grass.
4. Have double French doors to a lush rooftop garden
If the rooftop is possible to be transformed into a garden, grow more there. Imagine opening double French doors to a lush rooftop garden. For a moment, you may feel that you are not really in the central part of the city.
This is an old trick to maximize the small outdoor space. Different levels of the deck will make you feel like it has different zones. It can make the area look unique, wider, and exceptional.There are so many ways to make your outdoor space look gorgeous, especially for your urban home. Once you know how to maximize it, living in the city will not feel so cramped up anymore.
