Simple gardening ideas for transforming an outdoor space with containers, furniture, lighting and other low-maintenance elements.

'Spending so much time outdoors in my childhood made me think of a garden as a natural extension of my home - an inseparable part of everyday life. It wasn't until I moved into a rented property in the city that I felt an undeniable urge to make the most of the little exterior space that we had and re-evaluate it. In time, creating outdoor spaces that people truly care for, no matter how small or large, became much more rewarding than perfecting any indoor space. Many say that a home is a true reflection of self, but I believe it is the garden, where personalities and relationships with our surroundings truly blossom.' - Ula Maria

Gardening ideas for time-poor urbanites and the new wave of millennial gardeners. Includes gardening instructions for small spaces, flowers in small pots and tips on growing plants in urban areas.

Designed for those with small gardens, terraces, balconies and roof gardens who see their outdoor space as an extension of their home, rather than the horticulturally committed.

Her particular interest is in creating emotive garden spaces that evoke innate connections to nature through memories, senses and experiences.
