We designed this rooftop garden in Manhattan’s TriBeCa neighborhood using a combination of bluestone pavers and ipe decking for the floor. These high-fired Asian ceramic pots are your best bet for ceramics outdoors because they are frost-resistant and can be left outdoors without danger of cracking.

This Manhattan rooftop garden design features a wood deck and wicker furniture with plantings of boxwood hedges, hornbeam trees, and crape myrtles underplanted with hydrangeas and flowering annuals. Read more about this and other projects on my blog at www.amberfreda.com.

Few materials can match the natural beauty of a newly installed wood deck and fence, which were a dramatic transformation for this small backyard patio. A paraffin oil treatment brings out the rich colors of ipe, a hardwood with a 30 year life expectancy. Read more about this project on my blog at www.amberfreda.com.

This contemporary roof deck in NYC’s TriBeCa neighborhood features wood deck tiles, bamboo roll fencing, fiberglass and ceramic containers for a seamless blend of Asian-contemporary and traditional elements.We also installed dark brown bamboo roll fencing in front of an existing ugly metal fence to help camouflage and childproof it. Wood deck tiles are a quick, relatively inexpensive alternative to building a custom deck. Read more about this project on my blog at www.amberfreda.com.
