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.

Overlooking Central Park

The rain only enhances the views Central Park from Theis penthouse terrace. As does the wisteria, scabiosa, sweet potato vine and arched cedar trellis I designed to frame the view. I think the sheep is longing for it's meadow though.

Secret Garden in Williamsburg

This is what I call a Living green roof. It is a roof with green grids, tree, water features AND plenty of furniture so you can LIVE WELL in the green.

Village Green

This was is one of my oldest gardens in the city. I first designed this over 15 years ago and then had the privilege to redo it a few years ago. We kept the wild look in parts of the garden and used a mix of vintage and new modern furniture.

A One day Before and After Garden

When a Park Avenue Hedge Fund wants a garden terrace to keep the traders at the office for lunch we know we needed something green, masculine and lush. A kind of park in the sky, planted I custom made zinc planters...and all planted on one day!

Winter interest in containers

Keeping containers garden looking good in the winter takes a little addition of cut pine branches, cyclamen, Tallo berries, and hardy heuchura

Green Roof "Rugs"

A green roof need not be one that can't be walked on. On this green roof I created blocks go sedum grids that can be walked on and walked around.

William Wegman's Rooftop Garden

I designed William Wegman's rooftop garden as much for the dogs as the family. The containers were made of copper so when the dogs peed on them they turned that beautiful patina blue...and looked even better!

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.
