We designed this large public courtyard for a co-op apartment building overlooking Central Park. The space is meant to be enjoyed by multiple groups of people, with separate areas for dining, seating, and lounging. It’s adjacent to a large playground, which makes it the perfect place for gatherings for birthday parties and get-togethers. Check out our blog for more: http://ow.ly/vm2f30bUUvT

This Boerum Hill, Brooklyn rooftop terrace garden features a zinc fountain flanked by corten steel planters, custom-built ipe wood planters, bench seating, and a bed of Mexican beach stones. Many people enjoy outdoor fountains for the relaxing sound they provide, which can also help to drown out noises from A/C units or other jarring sounds of the city. We also designed these beautiful ipe (pronounced e-pay) wood planters and a comfortable built-in bench with storage under the seats. Check out the before photo at http://ow.ly/dMNQ30bIbCc

One of our latest NYC terrace design projects features all white porcelain pavers and white fiberglass planters, as well as outstanding views of Central Park. This residence has three terraces that we designed and installed gardens for, two of which face Central Park, and the third one has a great view of downtown Manhattan. A blue ceramic fountain contrasts nicely against all the white, and ever flower in bloom really pops as well. We also helped the client with sourcing some amazing custom lattices for trumpet vines to grow on. Plantings include weeping cherry trees, boxwoods, rhododendrons, and maiden grasses. Check out the before and after photos for this project on our blog: http://ow.ly/eaMv30bIbhJ

This Upper West Side rooftop terrace design features ipe wood planter boxes and a built-in bench on top of a bluestone patio. The bench features built-in lighting. Plantings include boxwoods, a red Japanese weeping maple, maiden grasses, and a hydrangea. An excellent benefit of roof gardens is the positive environmental effects they have. All plant life helps the city by absorbing noise, trapping dust, recycling carbon dioxide, and absorbing and breaking down many pollutants. Plants help to reduce the negative climatic effects of urbanization by absorbing some of the heat generated and absorbing the rainfall that runs off hard surfaces. Plants can also help to reduce energy costs by insulating buildings against extremes of heat and cold. Read more on my blog: http://ow.ly/KPHt30buAZs

Flowers in the garden don’t get much better than this! Tulips are one of our absolute most favorite flowers in the garden, but most people don’t know they have to be planted in the fall because they require a winter chill period to come up and bloom in the spring. Find out on our blog which tulip varieties are in the bouquet, fresh from Amber’s garden at http://ow.ly/JHSC30buAdU

What could be better than sitting in your armchair and watching a brilliant butterfly or hummingbird come into your garden for a sip of nectar? Even in a small urban setting, a garden can be a great attractor for beautiful wildlife. Read more on how to make your garden wildlife friendly on my blog: http://ow.ly/XFe830bieVN

When it comes to garden design in small spaces like this Brooklyn backyard, it's a good idea to come up with a simple color palette of 3-5 colors. When you use those same colors over and over again in the design, the result is a cohesive, high impact, well designed garden that doesn't feel overwhelming or random.

Tulips are a girl's best friend. Bulbs require a winter chill period to come up and bloom in the spring. They are absolutely one of our most favorite flowers of the entire year. View our selection of tulips on my blog: http://ow.ly/KOM830bieDO

Now that's a nice looking trash storage unit! We designed this unit out of clear cedar that has been oiled to bring out the natural richness of the wood. We also designed the bluestone patio and recommended a black metal bench and black fiberglass planters filled with lush plantings. Check out our design rendering and the BEFORE photo on our blog: http://ow.ly/m7nT30b60bx
