  • Ecologically-based designs for terraces, containers, yards, and green roofs.
  • Features local flora and considers ecological relationships (such as pollination and seed dispersal), seasonality (spring turning to fall), textures (airy grasses, architectural shrubs) and winter interest.
  • Provides rich biological diversity, habitat for wildlife, and a connection to the changing seasons.
  • Examples of our work – selected projects
  • The Lucida, New York, NY
    Upper East Side’s first LEED-certified condominiums. Designed native plant palette for 2700 sf green roof. The wildflowers, shrubs, and grasses provide bold contrasts of color and texture to be read from a distance of overlooking office buildings. Completion 2010.

    This ASLA award-winning Magnolia Courtyard highlighted local histories and the regional ecosystem.  The residence interfaces with the larger watershed and the Atlantic flyway (migratory birds) through the implementation of a vegetated roof, water collection and a native plant scheme.
