A Soho Roof Garden with Custom Pergola
Jeffrey Erb Landscape Design was busy creating wonderful gardens in 2012. However, some of them are only going to be in full bloom for the first time this season and we can’t wait to share them with you. Until the plants are in full leaf, we thought we would give you a sneak peek of some of our newest gardens.
Tiered Planters Offer Multiple Levels of Vegetation in Soho
This Soho rooftop now features a custom pergola to escape from the hot summer sunshine. Custom tiered planters offer two levels of flowering vegetation. We utilized the method of color blocking to create groupings of perennials within a set range of colors.
A Retaining Wall Doubles as a Planting Bed and Sitting Ledge
A chic backyard in Greenwich Village has been completely gut renovated. New bluestone pavers, a retaining wall and custom decking give the space a whole new feel. Our plantings will be highlighted by a low voltage lighting system.

Custom Planters Fit into the Corner of this Midtown Penthouse
Midtown Manhattan never looked better than from the roof of this private penthouse. Custom fiberglass planters anchor the edge of a deck which sits above a luxurious rooftop lawn. We installed over 250 square feet of live sod on this rooftop. The four-legged resident of the house is thrilled!

Memorial day is a time to remember the lives given by those who served our country in the line of duty. At the onset of summer, as festivities and patriotic spirits are lifted, we gather with family and loved ones we are thankful to have in our lives. There is no doubt in my mind that Central Park is swamped with picnics and gatherings on this gorgeous day.
I want to take a moment to remember Frederick Law Olmsted and his contribution to our city. Central Park (and Prospect Park) is an inconic landmark of New York City which continues to make a significant impact on the lives of Manhattanites and visitors alike. The sea of green which Olmsted approached with the viewpoint of creating a public space equally accessible for all classes was truly visionary at the time.
A stunning penthouse on Central Park West overlooks the classic landscape that Olmsted left behind. Our task was to channel Olmsted’s vision to create a terrace that complements the views and surrounding landscape. The result is a timeless garden full of understated textures and greenery to produce a calm place for the homeowners to entertain and relax. Watch the video to see the transformation!
