The Small Garden creates innovative outdoor solutions for city living. Browse our Projects Gallery and lose yourself in a world of inspiration.


The Small Garden is a Brisbane-based design studio cultivating greener city living. We combine design practices with a love for nature to bring life to urban spaces.

When people living in urban areas have the opportunity to regularly interact with nature, their wellbeing, happiness and productivity all improve. From outdoor areas to public spaces and offices, our complete design service responds to this innate need to connect with natural environments.

By pushing boundaries and thinking big – even in the smallest of spaces – we create solutions to restore the balance between urban living and the natural world.

“The future will belong to the nature-smart – those individuals, families, businesses and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world, and who balance the virtual with the real world.”

Richard Louv, Author of The Nature Principle


The Small Garden was established in 2013 to rejuvenate neglected urban spaces. We are passionate about the role design plays in improving our lives and work with individuals and businesses to create forward-thinking solutions for city living.

Inspired by possibility, we believe that the future of our cities depends upon our willingness to embrace the natural world. We take ideas from nature, changemakers and global design thinking, and draw upon more than 15 years of industry experience to overcome the challenges that urban spaces present.
