City Living

Staged on the Convention Center’s Skybridge spanning Pike Street far below, 10 delightful patio gardens offer lots of practical ideas and inspiration, especially for apartment and condo dwellers, or anyone with a limited space for outdoor living.

City Living demonstrates just how creative container plantings can be in a small space. These 6ft. x 12ft. masterpieces incorporate intimate outdoor living spaces for relaxing and entertaining. The patio gardens demonstrate creative ways to use space, incorporating vertical wall planters, bold plant combinations, lavish textural accents, cozy seating and even water features using the natural sounds of water to mask the cacophony of city noise. These gardens are created by leading retail nurseries and landscape designers in the Pacific Northwest.
