BROOKLYN GARDEN DESIGN
Behind an impeccably kept 1890 brownstone building in Brooklyn, NYC, we collaborated with a wonderful family on a garden made up of several "rooms." Originally featured in the Sunday New York Times, this Park Slope garden is located near Grand Army Plaza.
The project began with a total overhaul, clearing existing material and broken fences. The client requested that the garden feel like a journey through the french countryside. We selected "wild plantings', many pollinator-friendly species to bring in birds, butterflies, bees. The barn door was built as a central focal point and folly. Two designed fountains cool the air. The rear garden wall and "short wall" (which holds storage) was built with salvaged 125 yr. old brick to match the rear wall of home.
