Our services in action
Although small in size, this project had enormous expectations and a design team and client spanning from New York down to Florida.

Design Studio x
A Custom Design for a Special Place
The custom build-up supports a lush garden composed of native and ornamental plants. The species were selected and arranged to create a loose yet legible planting with seasonal colors and amplified textures. The green roof is a distinct feature off the main living area, disguises a lower level, and reaches out to expansive agrarian views. The plants flow and ripple with the surrounding fields when the wind moves across the landscape.
Care & Maintenance x
The Care & Maintenance team tended this rooftop garden for the important early years. Our goal was to ensure a healthy establishment of the plants and manage routine maintenance, so when the time came it could be handed off to the client’s more than capable hands.
