City Garden Guru creates innovative, individualized urban garden designs that will transform your rooftop, backyard terrace or courtyard into a beautiful, inspiring space that fits your lifestyle and your budget.

Container Gardens

Containers offer limitless garden opportunities to homes/apartments with decks, patios, courtyards and/or backyards. They can easily be customized for any type or size of exterior spaces and offer our clients an extraordinary palette of container colors, designs, fabrications and shapes.

Courtyards and Backyards

City Garden Guru has extensive experience with urban courtyards and backyards. Whether you need a touch-up or a complete make-over we can help. After evaluating your soil, we'll develop plant palette designs based upon the individual microclimates of each part of the site.

Roofdecks and Decks

Roofdecks and decks are our expertise, since our owner has had a Philadelphia roof deck for over 20 years in Bella Vista and has installed many, many deck gardens. We understand the challenges and joys of a deck garden and customize our container and plant palettes so that the gardens can thrive.

City Garden Guru also services commercial properties, such as condominium complexes, that request beauty year-round with four season perennials, colorful summer annuals, winter evergreen interest, holiday decor, spring bulb excitement and year-round maintenance.

Chris was great to work with. I really appreciated the time and thought she put into the planning process. Plus, she just “got it”–what we were looking for, what worked with our style, with our home. She has also been very responsive to my questions about care and maintenance. The result is fantastic–her installations are layered and textured, and truly munique and beautiful. They complement our home and bring another dimension to it.
