Best City garden
A City Haven

Design inspiration

Karina Lazareva"This is a small, intimate, sheltered garden for a ground floor apartment within the bustling city of Moscow; a calm space in which to escape the fast pace of a professional lifestyle. Large shrubs and small trees break up the boundary lines, hold the eye within the space, and create a degree of privacy from neighbouring gardens and apartments. My planting is simple, based on form and shape, texture and shades of green, with the interjection of small flowers. My design creates the effect of a small woodland area in an urban environment. All of the plants chosen are hardy enough to withstand the Moscow climate."

Designer, Karina Lazareva
