How it all began – our idea of the perfect urban garden

Amber has taught dozens of classes in garden design at both the New York and Brooklyn botanical gardens. Her client list includes many of the world’s most notables, including George Soros, Anna Quindlen, Brett Icahn, Joseph Edelman, David Faucon, Reshma Shetty, Aetna founder and CEO Mark Bertolini, and make-up guru Bobbi Brown.

Amber has been interviewed as a guest expert by the CBS New York Morning Show. She has also been featured in The New York Times, the Associated Press, Better Homes & Gardens, HGTV, Daily Candy, New York House, New York Resident, Garden Design, Design Bureau, and New York Magazine.

Amber started her own business in 2004 with a desire to provide high-end, detail-oriented urban garden design. She wanted to offer clients a design aesthetic that was really clean, contemporary, and grounded. By grounded, she means a design should feel connected to the space’s architecture, the individual style of the client, and also the pulse of the city around it.

Amber personally oversees the design of every project from start to finish. Your project will never be handed over to a sales rep or an installation crew, like most big landscaping companies, where the owner is typically only there for the initial consultation. Amber will be there working on your project every step of the way, from the initial design all the way up to the actual day of installation, making sure that every detail meets her high standards.

Amber is also available for winter garden design consultations and overseeing installations in warm climate cities, including Miami, Houston, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.

Our Services

On-Site Consultation

Our process begins with an on-site consultation to evaluate your style and vision, as well as the site conditions so we can make recommendations to fit your particular space.

Installation

We install all of the plants and planters ourselves, and our general contractor builds out all of the custom features according to our specifications in a way that feels very seamless, well designed, and hassle-free for you as the homeowner.

Design

We offer comprehensive design plan drawings that are completely ready to be submitted for board approval and are the best way to show you how all of the elements will look together so you can offer feedback and make changes prior to installation.  We can design everything from planting schemes to furniture layouts to custom features such as decks, patios, turf, pergolas, fences, and outdoor kitchens.

Drip Irrigation

We install drip irrigation systems that deliver precise amounts of water to the plants in a way that helps maximize their health and longevity for years to come.  Our irrigation systems are an inexpensive and easy way to protect your investment in your garden.

Monthly Service

We offer on-going maintenance of your garden that will keep your plants healthy and thriving.  Maintenance typically includes pruning, organic fertilizer and pest control, leaf clean-up, training plants, deadheading, weeding, and maintenance to the irrigation and lighting systems.

Landscape Lighting

We can recommend a variety of landscape lighting solutions, including low-voltage up-lighting in the plants, overhead globe lighting in pergolas and over patios, high-voltage wall sconces, floodlights, task lighting for outdoor kitchens, step lights, fence lighting, and more.
