The recently purchased brownstone in Brooklyn needed revitalization - the gardens were outdated and neglected in both the front and back. The client is a busy professional and an avid gardener and wanted to participate from start to finish. She wanted to create unique spaces for her and her daughter.
It began with a beautiful selection of certified organic herbs used to design the containers for the back patio and an assortment of annuals to create decorative containers for the front steps.
In the front garden, we had to remove yards of landscape fabric and old red mulch. After amending the soil, we cleaned up and relocated salvageable plants and shrubs to reclaim space, planted native perennials, pollinators, a beautiful crepe myrtle and rose. And finally, we used an organic dark mulch to create a more natural environment.
The back garden was cleaned and the soil was amended with organic soil, compost, and fertilizer. Existing shrubs were also pruned. We left the client with a garden that fit the old brownstone - with character, beauty and interest.
