Foodscaping by VEG and the City

The VEG and the City Foodscaping team plans and plants small and large urban oases: edible and insect-friendly! 🐝🌿🫐 From small private balconies to large areas for museums, restaurant terraces or office spaces, our Foodscaping team transforms any place into a green oasis.

Bring the garden to your home

Instead of landscaping, we do foodscaping - we combine vegetables with flowers, berry bushes with herbs, fruit trees with spring flowers. Ideal for the urban balcony garden. You harvest from perennial herbs, have blooming flowers for the insects and in between grow vegetable plants or lettuce.

You don't need a classic garden bed for an edible garden. Planting is possible almost anywhere. Depending on the location, we plan, plant and maintain urban kitchen gardens for private individuals, schools, companies, museums, cooperatives and cities. Biodiversity and the environment are important to us. Therefore, we use organically produced Swiss plants and seeds whenever possible. Our substrates are organic and peat-free. For plant protection, we use Biogarten Andermatt's biological plant protection products and beneficial insects.

We offer you:

  • Many years of experience in creating gardens in, around and on buildings.
  • As much help as you need. From garden consultation to a complete patio makeover, everything is possible
  • No space too small to be a garden. We also take on small (balcony) projects
  • Mobile plantings
  • Insect friendly plantings
  • We do NOT offer landscaping with earth shifting

In 6 steps to your dream garden

  1. After your call or e-mail, we will arrange an appointment to visit your balcony, terrace or garden.
  2. During the visit we check the site conditions. And most importantly: what are your wishes, what would you like to grow yourself and how much time can you invest in it?
  3. You will receive our offer with a detailed planting proposal.
  4. You still have change requests? No problem, we will adapt everything so that you end up with the balcony of your dreams.
  5. On the execution date, we come in a team of two and turn your dream into reality. We work cleanly, quickly and efficiently.
  6. If you wish, we can come back after 1-2 weeks to check whether all the plants have grown well.
