East Village; New York, NY

This garden is a beautiful oasis residing within a peaceful nook in the East village. With an emphasis on foliage and texture, we helped develop an environment where all garden elements blend together, cohesively, to pay homage to the Japanese Zen garden.

This garden is mostly a shade garden with pockets of bright sunlight. We had the privilege of designing and installing two green walls, one made entirely of moss, and one that is planted with Sempervivum. Sempervivum, commonly called hens & chicks, is a perennial succulent that is cold hardy to -35F. In summer it requires no irrigation and thus Sempervivum is a common plant used in green roof design. We look forward to watching this garden grow and develop, and continue to maintain it on a biweekly basis.
