Excited to transform an expansive TriBeCa rooftop, we created a playground the whole family could enjoy. The large pergola is covered in flowering vines and surrounded by airy grasses and sweet aromatic lavender. Around the kitchen table we customized an edible landscape where strawberries, blueberries, veggies and extensive herbs can be found all season long. 

This garden is rooted in the living room and extends out onto the roof—creating a fluid space for living and entertaining. To complement the client’s love of plants, we created individual green spaces specifically designed around areas of sun, shade, and their outdoor kitchen.

Roof essentials: sun, shade, a hammock and a kitchen surrounded by veggies, herbs and edible flowers.

Framing this view was like collaborating with the skyline. Next time you're in SoHo, look up and maybe you'll see these graceful grasses, flowering trees and showy hydrangeas waving from this unique rooftop.

The clients wanted a garden for entertaining friends at night and cultivating as many edible and aromatic plants as possible. So we didn't hold back... 

Edible: grapes, strawberries, kiwis, beets, figs, currants, string beans, tomatoes, too many herbs, brussel sprouts, salad greens and edible flowers

Aromatic: (All of the above) Casablanca Lilies and night blooming Jasmine

This Little Italy terrace is the first thing you see when the elevator doors open. The client, a gifted (NYC based) interior decorator, has a clean modern aesthetic we were excited to bring to her terrace. We created a low maintenance* garden with evergreen hedges and installed a lush grass flooring no one will ever have to mow. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Zero maintenance gardens do not exist however, there are tricks.                                  See what we mean by taking a closer look at the drawing details.

This hardworking law student was excited to plan a bee and butterfly-friendly  garden on her West Village rooftop. Using her love of color and sunshine, and taking her view of the Hudson River into account, we created a pollinator* garden, planting cone flowers, blue mist spirea and sweet smelling annuals to attract these visitors all season long.
