I have designed gardens in New York City since 2001, and have created my own gardens in tight city spaces since 2004.
Would you like to grow your own salads? Chances are you can. How about a serviceberry orchard on the 17th floor (and what is a serviceberry anyway?)? Or do you prefer blueberries?
Maybe you just like lilies. Or have always wanted a herb garden.
Perhaps you own a shady backyard: a native woodland garden is a good idea, but you don't know where to begin. And you'd like to boost the morale of local pollinators by introducing appealing indigenous perennials. But which ones?
Full sun? You can never have too much sun. But you will need water.
What I do: Assess your available space in terms of aspect and micro-climate: sun/shade, challenges specific to your site (deep shade pockets, orientation with regards to winter winds); and advise on which plants might do well, there, and where to find them.
We'll talk about what sort of garden you need: edible, ornamental, native? To live in, or to look at? What about perennials and shrubs and trees? While I'll have on-the-spot suggestions in an hour-long consultation, I also provide schematic designs, plant lists and seasonal care outlines, as well as practical coaching: how to water, how to plant.
