We present here, some of MSB’s best garden makeovers. More as they come in!
The zen balcony
Too narrow to be of any use and too long to be ignored, this balcony was perfect candidate for an inward looking japanese-inspired garden. A traditional water fountain gurgles away into a terra-cota urn, while the buddha smiles serenely out from amidst the foliage as if to say: Relax, you’re home!

A sunny Mediterranean terrace
A bit of Greece, Morocco and Spain went into this garden makeover, with an interesting blend of Spanish-style wrought iron wall accessories, Tuscan style grills, Morocco-inspired indigo blue painted terra-cota pots, stark white walls, with blue pots from Greece and a serene central water feature!

A Conference room makeover
This chic conference room needed a touch of green to make it come to life! Only slightly deterred by the pelting rain, MSB managed to create this pretty gallery-garden in under a day! 6 hours of panting, pushing pulling and banging into glass doors and voila, we were done.. and more than amply rewarded by the smiles on the owners’ faces 🙂
A bistro restaurant garden
The next time you stop by the charming little Parsi restaurant and cafe, Daddy’s Deli, don’t forget to check out their garden! It used to be our favorite food place, now it’s one of our favorite gardens, too 🙂
Team MSB had a fabulous time doing up this space, digging and painting and potting around. We also got to experience Zarine’s hospitality with some yummy snacks and hot cups of chai, too!
A Transformation with traditional Art
The spectacular view from this beautiful Basavanagudi balcony was only slightly marred by a utilitarian clothes-stand in an alcove on the right. A rollable bamboo screen now keeps the utility area away from view while the balcony is being used. A water feature gurgles away happily in a corner, while a sunlit wall now supports a flowering climber on a trellis. Our work was made even easier with the entire family pitching in wholeheartedly with the potting and installation. The piece de resistance however, is a Warli art mural custom-created for the family by our artist.
Rainforest in an office
The charming owners of this Jayanagar office wanted an open air Bamboo Forest feel to their workspace. A changed wall colour, Bambo fencing, MSB’s terra-cotta designer pots with tropical foliage, a pergola and a pebbled pathway did the trick!
A bit of old worldBangalore
The only sunny spot in this home was this tiny strip area atop a stone bench and along the parapet. A beautiful old tulsi planter now hosts the colours of the season, while its companions soak up the sun around it. In due course, a beautiful ficus in a large planter, crocuses,roses, anthuriums and a lily pond – all joined the sunny spot. Now, a different corner bursts into bloom every couple of months with an entirely new set of blossoms. A true blueBangalorebalcony!
A highrise office makeover
This garden space needed to be designed quite differently from our other spaces. MSB designed new pots and urns, to suit the sleek and imposing feel of this space! We did add a few MSB touches though, with a geranium planters, an island of blue terracotta and mosaic tile urns and lemon trees, to give the garden an informal but proffessional feel.
