Valued spaces

Urban gardens are usually modest in size, which makes the details more essential. Small spaces allow for higher quality materials, permit more precise garden care in the limited time available to busy homeowners, and provide closer, more intimate settings which encourage conversation and relaxation. These gardens become tiny “jewel boxes” to be treasured and enjoyed.

Urban Courtyard garden design

Because of their small scale, city gardens are often synonymous with courtyard gardens. Courtyard gardens extend a building’s welcoming environment beyond its walls and create a series of interesting spaces or outdoor “rooms.” Windows and glass doors frame the living artwork of the garden for the enjoyment of those inside, providing views even during inclement weather and at night. 

Since all parts of a courtyard garden are close to people, it is essential to select touchable, clean, beautiful, and even fragrant plants. The Hanselman team will pay careful attention to the elements’ scale, materials, and texture to create an enjoyable experience and encourage lingering.

Creativity is needed to optimize the available planting area while maintaining an elegant lightness to the space. Also, with limited space, maintaining plant size and providing predictive maintenance are important considerations.
