You're in for a shock if you think you have to live in the country in order to enjoy a gorgeous garden, as we've found some delightful suburban gardens that are blossoming perfectly well! 

With careful guidance from gardening experts and talented professionals, these spaces aren't a poor imitation of the luscious greenery we've come to expect from rural gardens. Far from it, in fact, as each and every one of these spaces is beautiful, flourishing and fabulous.

If you've been trying to think of a way to make your suburban garden a little more special, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised by some of these.

The romantic feel of this garden makes you forget about the city location. There's even a swing!

6. Wild little escape

Left a little wild, this space is the perfect retreat at the bottom of a suburban garden.

7. Garden with everything!

A lawn, path, handy storage shed and even a little terrace. Plus, all the greenery helps the location just melt away.

8. Low-maintenance

If plants aren't really your thing, your suburban garden can still make a huge impact with an amazing water feature, like this!

9. Neat and tidy

10. Minimally stylish

Even minimalist urbanites can enjoy a stylish garden, if you choose the right shingle!

11. Big impression

When your home makes a big impression, your garden needs to as well. This hedge-lined lawn is the perfect choice.

12. Easy to copy

A steadfast terrace and modernist planters make this suburban garden easy to maintain and a doddle to enjoy!

13. Sweet and dark

The dark tones make this such a different style of garden, but we love it and the style factor can't be denied.

14. Colour blast
