How do you best design a small urban garden?
it must be tranquil, low maintenance and fit a patio or balcony
I would suggest container gardening. Just be sure you water it every day and use fertilizer. If you grow tomatoes, use garden lime, also. I grow tomatoes, peppers, and several herbs in a container garden every year. You can start it with seeds, but I have better luck using seedlings from the nursery.
I've tried container gardening (for tomatoes specifically) but don't like that the containers dry out so easily. I had much better luck growing tomatoes in a raised bed that I put next to my house on top of a mulch bed. I only had to water the garden every few days in the heat of summer and this cut down on mildew related issues you can have with tomatoes. If you have a patio, you can place these raised beds, which come in all sizes, right on top, although depending on the patio it may heat it up. Containers worked much better for me with basil and other herbs.
