For city-dwellers, even the tiniest patch of garden is a blessing – a little respite from the oceans of brick and concrete on the other side of the front door. Maybe it's just big enough for a few pretty containers and a table and chairs, or maybe you have a little more space to stretch out, plant a kitchen garden or a flowerbed, set up a shed or even cultivate a lawn. Even those without a proper garden might be able to carve out a little green space on a roof terrace or balcony. Our gallery of city gardens has plenty of ideas for designing an appealing outdoors space within the limits of the urban jungle, from compact seating areas to pretty planters, lush planting to elegant decking.

    The back garden of a west London house transformed by designer and architect Rabih Hage has been divided into two sections, one functioning as an outdoor seating area with a contemporary design and the other as a more lush and verdant area.

    The spacious back garden is one of the elements that has kept Rupert and Charles attached to their elegant London house; it is planted with 2,000 tulips each year.

    It really is magnificent, and in terms of its size and its style, so unusual for a London garden. Charles's eyes light up when he talks about it - even details such as the new shelving in the greenhouse, where seedlings, succulents and subtropicals grow. Upstairs, the main bathroom also has its own terrace that makes the most of this view.

    For the past seven years, he and Rupert have participated in the NGS Open Gardens scheme (of which Rupert is a trustee), in which hundreds of visitors come to see thousands of tulips standing tall among irises and tree peonies. Charles refers to himself as a plantsman, preferring the soft structure created through planting to the strict lines created through hard landscaping. It is interesting that a designer whose interiors have such a strong geometry takes such a different approach to his garden designs. But it is another contrast that works so well.

    This townhouse garden off Portobello Road provides a sanctuary from the bustling streets of Notting Hill. With the dining area situated on the roof terrace, the garden has been simply, symmetrically designed for pure visual pleasure; a mock Roman bust takes centre stage.

    If you're unable to take your alfresco dining elsewhere, opt for fold-up or portable tables and chairs, which can be easily removed when you want your garden to function solely as a beautiful green space.

Undivided windows give a view all the way to the entrance hall, and reveal a double-height bespoke lighting installation, which hangs above the coffee table from Mint. The gorgeous little garden, landscaped by Alasdair Cameron, features white cobblestones, slim, silver-birch trees, and a living wall dotted with birdhouses.

    The back garden of this London home, reconfigured by interior designer Penny Morrison, is split into different levels, with a terrace for dining and a raised seating area. Several small rooms that made up the basement of the house were taken out to create this new outdoor space. Initially little more than a shallow dark well with a 1.8-metre-high retaining wall obscuring the rest of the open space, the wall was removed and the earth in front of the basement door dug away to make enough space for a table and chairs. Shallow steps lead up through two levels to an upper gravelled area complete with a stone bench and raised beds filled with clipped box balls.

    This 11.6-square-metre office is perched on the original roof of Jos and Annabel White's home in Manhattan. Because of the building's landmark status, no additions can show from the street, not even a single brick. So Jos's office had to be set back four metres from the parapet. On the garden side, it has an angled wall of glass windows, which cantilever up using a hand crank. The design is inspired by one of architect Basil Walter's favourite buildings, Pierre Chareau's Maison de Verre in Paris. The side table is the 'Cannon' design from BDDW.

    Richard Joseph of innovative kitchenware brand Joseph Joseph completely reconfigured the back of his Wandsworth house with the help of architect Daniel Adeshile, adding a kitchen and double-height dining room with six-metre-high glass doors that slide back to create a fluid link with the small garden at the rear.

    'The only company that could make them that high with the thin frames was in Portugal,' says Richard. 'There was this big hole at the back of the house for three months waiting for the windows to arrive, and then we had to close the road and crane them in. It was a bit of a nightmare.' The enormous sliding creates an abundance of natural light and gives ample room for outdoor entertaining.

    The tiny, enclosed garden of this Chelsea house acts as a second dining room for its lucky owners. Festoons of climbing plants and a combination of small trees work beautifully with the limestone paving and Italianate sculpture (note the mirror wall behind, which enhances the feeling of light and space). Delicate outdoor furniture like this is the perfect choice for a small garden as it doesn't block the space visually. You can practically see straight through the pretty table and chairs used here; anything more chunky runs the risk of feeling too solid and oppressive, giving the illusion that the garden is smaller than it actually is.

  • City gardens - city garden ideas and design

    Amazing as it may seem, this Victorian house in west London, belonging to artist Elizabeth Morgan and her husband, didn't originally have an outdoor space. 'There is a huge communal garden, but having a private space is obviously preferable. It was one of those rare moments when I managed to convince a client to do the opposite of what is the norm,' says architect Margherita Thumiger of Studio 29. 'I suggested that we demolish an extension that had been built at the back of the house, and put in a small private garden with African-inspired, oversize plants instead.'

    Calling on the services of Sylvie Gabbey of Ginger Landscape (07790451553) to choose the plants, Margherita suggested adding a living wall to one side of the garden, giving the feeling of a lush, verdant space where there is little room for ground level planting.

    'Living walls are very effective in small gardens, as they add a huge amount of depth.' This example, from Greenwood Nurseries - Aldingbourne, is hooked up to a hidden irrigation system, pumped from a tank of water laced with plant food, meaning no watering necessary. The nursery takes care of the upkeep, coming to change the tank every few months and tending to, or switching, any plants that aren't looking healthy; it is the ultimate in low maintenance gardening. The garden furniture is M'Afrique by Moroso and is constructed from old telephone wires.

    The walls have been painted in a rich aubergine colour, 'much cosier than white walling'; while the floor has been paved in a dark slate. 'Everyone in the UK asks for beige stone, but then the rain comes and the floor starts to get mossy and green. Better to opt for a dark slate like this, which looks almost like shiny marble when wet, and has a great texture and blue-ish colour when dry.'

    At just 1,200 square feet, this is the second smallest house in Manhattan. When two architects, Anne Fairfax and Richard Sammons, bought it, they transformed it to create a bijou interior with a sense of spaciousness that belies its exterior appearance. Leading out of the kitchen is a small enclosed garden with ivy topiary.

    Once part of the attic, the top-floor flat of this London house has been opened out make a large roof terrace with views over a garden square. Architects Marek Wojciechowski and Ben Cousins, in collaboration with Brendan Thompson from Mint Construction, supplied them with a soothing, clean-lined backdrop, with furniture chosen by interior designer Michael Reeves, known for his winning combination of pared-down urban elegance and everyday practicality. 'The flat has a semi-industrial feel,' says Michael, 'and we needed to get a balance between the hard-edged and the domestic. It all needed to be quite refined.'

    Establishing an intimate relationship between indoors and out was always a fundamental part of the brief, and the new roof terrace, now as streamlined as the interior, works very much as an extra room, with a full working kitchen, an outdoor fireplace, comfortable seating and a generous dining table.

    The oriental-inspired planting, designed by Karena Batstone, is intended to offer a strong evergreen structure, updated with seasonal planting throughout the year. Carefully positioned planters contain bamboos and grasses that dance above the skylights, casting lacy shadows in the bedroom below.
