If you’re anything like me, then you are probably catching up on a stack of books in the winter months. Nothing remedies a cold winter night like a good garden book. Betsy Pinover Schiff’s September 2016 Sidewalk Gardens of New York beautifully captures little garden moments in this big city that we often miss. She successfully catches the tiniest plantings in our urban environment from tree pit and entry plantings to hanging baskets and container gardens.

Sidewalk Gardens of New York by Betsy Pinover Schiff

Betsy photographed gardens from spring to fall in this book and captured a wide range of seasonally significant blooms. This book delights visually. You can almost feel yourself walking the streets of New York City at a leisurely pace as you turn each page.

Jeffrey Erb Landscape Design’s work is captured in this book (hint, look at page 14) Enjoy, be inspired and prepare for spring!

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.

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

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!
