Do you have a love of great food, an appreciation of beauty, and a passion for social and environmental responsibility? Then urban gardening may be exactly what you’re looking for in landscape design.
Growing food in urban spaces is an ancient tradition that is enjoying a renaissance in cities and towns all over the nation—including right here in Memphis. While food plots used to be unattractive affairs banished to the back corner of the yard, the trend now is to give edible plants a starring role in the landscape.
When approached with an eye for good design, urban food production can enhance the beauty of your yard or patio even as it produces a bounty of tasty, nutritious, local and sustainable produce for your family, friends, neighbors, and community. It’s as much a feast for the eyes as for the palette.
An urban garden can be as small as a few pots, urns or planters on a window sill, or as large as raised garden beds, or a field of food-producing plants. Our team can incorporate these gardens around patio areas, shade structures, or water-capturing systems like cisterns on your residential property. We can also create butterfly and wildlife gardens.
Growing food brings people together. The Urban Gardening movement is all about sustainability and community. We’ve found that urban gardens are a great way to give back to our community. Together with Big Green, a non-profit focusing on helping students learn how to grow food, we’ve helped over 125 schools in the Mid-South create their urban garden.
Our urban gardening services in Memphis help you incorporate food plants into the landscape in wildly imaginative, highly attractive, and socially responsible ways. From a potted tomato on your patio to a backyard herb garden to complement your outdoor kitchen to a decorative mixed bed of edible flowers and vegetables growing cheerfully around a dwarf fruit tree in your front yard, or even an entire yard devoted to aesthetically pleasing food production, we can help you design an edible garden that complements your home and your lifestyle.
Get the most from the space you have. Let us guide you through the process of creating a beautiful and productive garden for your urban spaces, no matter how small or large.
To find what works best for you, our experienced staff will first speak with you about your property and your goals. Once we understand your vision, we’ll work with you to design a suitable urban garden for your needs.
To start the process, we only need to hear from you. What is your vision for your sustainable urban garden? To grow full-fledged produce, raise a few herbs for seasoning and aesthetic effect, or perhaps to create a safe oasis for the benefit of hummingbirds, bees, and other urban wildlife? Let us know—it’s the first step to creating a sustainable urban garden you’ve always wanted.
