Bed-Stuy Is Beautiful!

This contemporary rooftop garden in Midtown Manhattan features continuous custom-built wood planters made from ipe (pronounced e-pay), a hardwood with a 30-year life expectancy. It also includes a grey wrap-around sofa, extra large umbrella, and an outdoor rug. The plantings include cherry trees, boxwoods, Hollywood junipers, Thunderhead pines, and creeping Jenny. It’s nice to have a mix of evergreens, trees, and flowering plants combined together so that there is always something interesting to look at in every season.
