Giving Your Urban Garden a Well-Deserved Makeover

In the past, here on Seasons in Colour, I’ve briefly talked about how to make the most of your gardens. Indeed, I tend to focus more on the interiors, the colours, designs, and all the seasonal trends, but we should keep in mind that making changes outdoors can also complement the overall quality of our homes. After all, you don't want to stay indoors now that the good weather is coming back?!

Ever since we moved to our current home I really had little choice but tend to the outdoors given the beautiful garden we inherited from the previous owners. And while I find that our garden is not very 'high maintenance' compared to others, there still is a lot to do every couple of weeks. But I really enjoy the tasks - whatever gets me out of the house really!

For those of you that live in the city, serious horticultural endeavours can be quite a challenge – especially for beginners and/or casual green thumbs. However, there’s this so-called urban gardening that’s aimed to maximise the space you have outdoors, while adding a signature look to your home. Because at the end of the day, there’s nothing more delightful and whimsical than a specific area where natural beauty in an otherwise concrete setting reigns supreme. With a bunch of ideas, carefully laid out plans, and the proper execution, you can add a touch of charm to your home. To a certain extent, you can create your own oasis right in the heart of the urban jungle you occupy.
