We love the CITY and we love NATURE…successfully merging the two is the ultimate challenge for any urban landscape. Our goal is to create an URBAN PARADISE.

We are urban horticulturalists, landscape dreamers AND city dwellers… All qualities needed for making the best garden design company in the New York City.

With two decades of experience and a reputation for excellence, we deliver great design combined with meticulous and timely installations.

Sky’s the Limit when it comes to the creativity of our urban landscape designs. And fast….we are instant gratification specialists!

 

The challenge of any urban garden is in keeping it URBAN.  It shouldn’t look like a garden in the Hamptons.

Why can’t a green roof be livable?  Why should we give up precious living space for plants…let’s SHARE!

We are proud to have designed one of the “Best Hotel Gardens in the World”  at The James Hotel in Soho.

Staining the trellis and containers to blend seemlessly with the building wall allows the magnificient Central Park view from this terrace to be the focus. But sometimes I wonder if the sheep longs for the meadow below .....

Zinc containers

In order to make a garden fit on a small office terrace sometimes we have to go custom. We created a green wall in zinc planters with a line of birch and junipers. Low maintenance and beautiful.

No reason to limit the green to the roof surface only when doing a green roof...why not the table, the walls, the art along with the floor!
