Fifth Avenue Terrace

A small garden with views of Central Park and just enough outdoor space for a quiet place to sit, eleven floors above busy city streets.

West 148 Street Garden

I live in the Washington Coop building which abuts the west side of the garden. In spring of 2011 I planted the long bed alongside the Alameda  condos which sit on the east side. This is a pro-bono project that has allowed me the opportunity to experiment with various plant combinations.  It is a rare oasis offering enough sunlight and shade to host a variety of plants that may not otherwise thrive in many city gardens.

West End

This project comprised of container plantings for an upper deck, a shady lower deck and containers and windowboxes near the front entrance.

Bay Ridge Garden

Overgrown weeds had smothered plants and become a haven for neighborhood strays cats in this backyard garden. With a minuscule budget and three days we managed to clear the weeds and rubble, straighten the back fence and concrete edge, salvage a few of the already existing plants and add a few shrubs, grasses and perennials for fall color.

Harlem Garden

This backyard garden required some construction work to create a paved walk, cooking nook and a gravel area surrounding the air conditioning unit on the far right. The area under the dogwood was cleared of gravel and defined by a steel edge before soil modification and planting.
