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.

A Terrace View from Above

We created a slivered oasis in this deco office building, two blocks form Madison Square Gardens. The teak flooring, the Maple trees and the take furniture become a respite in an overcrowded city...even if we did have to scrunch it all together.

Rambo in the James Hotel Rooftop Park

Rambo's favorite site visit is the weekly one we make at the James Hotel in Soho. The Birch trees lining Sixth ave and the green grass lawn and sweet potato vine makes a sweet secret urban park where you can relax playing a game of croquet as the taxi whiz by.

This narrow terrace living room feels anything but cramped when large comfortable furniture is nestled between Maple trees, perennials and blooming annuals. It also looks as good from indoors as out.

Perennial borders can be created on a rooftop garden starting with maple and clump birch trees then adding the nepeta,sweet potato vines and more.
