Care With Color
When it comes to garden design in small spaces like this Brooklyn backyard, it’s a good idea to come up with a simple color palette of 3-5 colors. When you use those same colors over and over again in the design, the result is a cohesive, high impact, well designed garden that doesn’t feel overwhelming or random.
Garden Design Brooklyn Backyard
This garden design for a Brooklyn backyard features an ipe (pronounced e-pay) fence and deck, sod, a bluestone patio, and a stepping stone path surrounded by Mexican beach stones. We developed this garden with a very specific color scheme in mind, and we limited the palette to blues, greens, and browns, with some black accents. Furnishings shown here include black outdoor lounge chairs and blue dining chairs. Plantings include junipers, grasses, euonymus, and lavendar highlighted by low-voltage landscape lighting.
