Custom Roof Deck in Brooklyn Heights has Zen Appeal

This custom-built Brooklyn Heights roof deck features amazing views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline.  We wanted the garden to feel like a lush little sanctuary with lots of warm wood tones, a jacuzzi, privacy screens, and gorgeous ceramic pots.  We mixed loose Mexican beach stones in with the decking around the jacuzzi for some contrast, visual interest, and a little bit of a zen vibe.  Our design included deck tiles, a bench with built-in storage under the seats, and planter boxes filled with dogwoods, ornamental grasses, boxwoods, hydrangeas, and creeping Jenny. This photo was take in very early spring before the plants had even fully leafed out. The garden became even more lush and beautiful with every day that passed.
