If you live in an urban setting, you might think that you can't be a gardener, but nothing could be further from the truth. As long as you can find some sunshine, you can be a gardener, whether you've got a balcony, a courtyard, or an entire empty lot to work with. Urban gardening can be an exercise in creativity and will reward you with food and flowers you can enjoy with family and friends, no matter how much or how little space you have. Let's start by taking a look at the special design considerations for creating a beautiful garden oasis in a concrete landscape.
You'll move from beginner to novice to experienced gardener as each section takes you from planning on paper to planting your dream garden.
