Escape To Gorgeous City Gardens In The New Book, Green

Whether your outdoor space is a roof terrace, balcony, small backyard or patio, Ula Maria‘s new book, Green: Simple Ideas for Small Outdoor Spaces, takes a fresh look at creating a city garden. The book approaches creating a dreamy outdoor oasis as if you’re decorating a room — exploring how to work with scale, color and texture, and choosing the plants that will thrive in an urban space. “Spending so much time outdoors in my childhood made me think of a garden as a natural extension of my home — an inseparable part of everyday life,” says Ula. The book shows 22 small and innovative gardens with a range of ideas to copy. Using low-maintenance plants, affordable furniture, lighting and containers, Green offers simple solutions that don’t involve major structural work but result in a stylish urban sanctuary. Let’s see how much joy a small garden can bring!
