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.

Sheep's Meadow ABOVE Central Park

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 .....

Even this narrow balcony can become a wonderful garden, fully furnished in the middle of Midtown Manhattan.

An organic urban one day make over!

I designed this log furniture to give the an organic feel to the modern urban back yard makeover in the heart of Harlem. Cement covering of on the picnic table top does the same.

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!

Who says a garden needs flowers!

Citron greens, rich browns, rusty metals, cement greys...makes a beautiful garden...sans flowers. Miscanthus grass, birch tress, bamboo...rudbeckia is the only thing that blooms.

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.
