ABSTRACT The existence of healthy, natural ecosystems and the continuation of the basic services in the ecosystem are essential for the protection of consumable resources. Pollination is one of these basic services. The effective pollination of plants is a key action for the ecosystem, human health and agriculture. Because more than 80 percent of plants grown for consumption and / or medicinal use require pollinators for reproduction and fruiting. Most of the world's food resources are shaped by pollination. However, global climate change, unplanned growth of cities and invasion of natural areas by non-indigenous species adversely affect pollination. Unsustainable landscape design decisions threaten both the plants to be pollinated and the insects that pollinate them. In order to contribute to the sustainability of urban and natural ecosystems within the city, pollination gardens are one of the most applied designs in recent days. Pollination gardens are especially trying to balance the inner and surrounding areas by increasing the pollination potential of the urban areas and contribute to the urban biodiversity by increasing the diversity of plants and animals. In this study, the criteria that pollination gardens designed in the city should have and the plant species that can be used in pollination gardens are mentioned.
