Green roofs and walls, urban agriculture, planting trees, and large swathes of native plantings are what most gardeners discuss when the topic of gardening in urban areas arises.
What often goes unnoticed is small space gardening – window boxes, containers, and entryways.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s a celebration of color with a variety of plants that intermingle or shades of green that create a calm and stately presence.
These tiny areas of plants – what I call micro-gardening – bring beauty, community, and peace to a city like Philadelphia.
Micro-gardening transforms Philadelphia into an urban jewel. A tapestry of texture and color.
