Sunny Roof Garden in the West Village

This rooftop garden in Manhattan’s West Village features custom fencing with built-in lighting, ipe (pronounced e-pay) planter boxes, deck tiles, a shade sail, and black fiberglass planters. Ipe is a hardwood with a 40+ year life expectancy.  A shade sail is a great, low-cost alternative to a pergola and creates a more laid back vibe than an umbrella.  Lush container plantings for this NYC terrace design include bamboo, ornamental grasses, hydrangea trees, purple coneflower, weigela, creeping Jenny, and heathers.
