UES Townhouse Roof Garden With Classic Style

When designing this rooftop garden for a townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, we wanted to maintain the classic style featured throughout the residence.  The planters are made of fiberstone, a blend of fiberglass and stone, and are filled with a lush mix of maiden grasses, hydrangea trees, boxwoods, creeping Jenny, caryopteris, and wisteria vines.  The black metal furniture works perfectly with the existing black wrought-iron fence.  When picking out the plants to go along the railing, we made sure to stick with low-profile plants that wouldn’t take up too much space or compete with the view.
