Jeffrey Erb Landscape Design was recently featured in a DNA Manhattan Local News article. Tara Kyle wrote a fantastic story capturing the fun fall decorations we did for a client in Chelsea. Read the story here:

Also, for everyone who can access WGAL news in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, there will be another story on our work featured on the 6PM news this Friday, November 19. I will certainly post a link to their website if they make it available online.

We did a gorgeous pumpkin installation this past week on a rooftop garden in Chelsea, Manhattan. The fall decorations were hand selected and delivered from Brooklawn Farm Market in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. To keep the display unique, we used a subtle color palette with lots of whites, creams, yellows, greens and soft oranges as opposed to the common carving pumpkins.

This is a great way to add a punch, and I mean PUNCH of color and texture to gardens at this time of year. The empty spaces left by seasonal annuals and tender perennials can quickly be filled with pumpkins and gourds. Fairytale pumpkins anchor this display, and my new favorite is the Yugoslavian finger pumpkin which is the white one with little finger-like shapes all around the bottom side of it. It is so sculptural, and is looks like a modern piece of art. We used the small white jack-b-little pumpkins to create a “decorative mulch” in the planter boxes. Enjoy the pictures.
