Don't let anyone tell you New Yorkers don't know a plant from a man-hole. We're working with some New York transplants who want an ambitious organic vegetable garden. Our clients are hands-on and want to learn. Here are designs for a Spring to Fall garden.
We were hired to create a completely organic berry bed and vegetable garden using companion planting and hatching praying mantids as our only means of pest control. We planted strawberries, blueberries and raspberries along the existing fence and used netting and bamboo which was gifted by a local resident trying to tame their bamboo forest. The existing vegetable bed turned out to be pressure treated wood (not good) which gave us the opportunity to redesign the space. We called in a good friend who did an amazing job working with us to create the fencing.
We managed these gardens as well as perennial plantings from spring until late fall.
