UES Terrace Gets a Contemporary Makeover


What a difference a day makes!  In one day, we totally transformed this terrace from barren to beautiful.  Playing on a contemporary Zen theme, we planted bamboo, a weeping cherry, a crape myrtle, hydrangeas, petunias, feather grasses, and creeping Jenny.  We recommended a contemporary looking seating arrangement with red chairs for a pop of bright color.  Even a small space like this feels totally different with the addition of lush plantings.  The bamboo really helps to soften the view of a nearby building.  While it’s almost impossible to have complete privacy in a space like this, the plantings create enough of a buffer to make the space feel more intimate and enclosed than it did previously.
