This contemporary roof deck in NYC’s TriBeCa neighborhood features golden bamboo, spiral Alberta spruces, red Japanese maples, and azaleas in a mix of grey fiberglass and black Asian dimpled ceramic pots.  We also installed dark brown bamboo roll fencing in front of an existing ugly metal fence to help camouflage and childproof it.  Read more about our projects on my blog at www.amberfreda.com.

This Boerum Hill, Brooklyn backyard features a bluestone patio, ipe deck, knotty cedar fencing, artificial turf, a cedar pergola with corrugated metal roof, bluestone stepping stones, and loose Mexican beach stones kept in place with metal edging.  The biggest challenge to designing this space was figuring out how to combine so many different elements in a way that still felt very contemporary and streamlined.  Read more about our projects on my blog at www.amberfreda.com.

This Brooklyn townhouse backyard features a bluestone patio and custom-built ipe planters. The quiet, Zen-like backyard is shaded by nearby buildings, so we picked a shade-tolerant mix of plants that will thrive here. When choosing plants that will do well in shade, I find it's generally helpful to think about the types of plants that do well in a woodland environment.
