  • Downtown Brooklyn Terrace Garden by Greenery NYC

    This Brooklyn rooftop garden incorporates beautiful native perennial plants with a lush herb garden and plenty of space for relaxing. In the spring, summer, and fall this terrace becomes an extension of the home and a favorite place for entertaining, relaxing, and dining.

    Creeping thyme makes a soft and fragrant understory planting to roof-top trees, beautiful sedum bowls add a colorful accent, and grasses mix with butterfly weed in this roof-top container garden. We planted tasty blueberries, so not only does the family get to enjoy the fruit, they also get to enjoy watching the birds that visit their garden. Additionally, by featuring native plants and food for pollinators this Brooklyn garden has become an oasis for several species of butterflies.

    Downtown Brooklyn Terrace
    This downtown Brooklyn garden blends a modern feeling with pops of color and family-friendly design. Trellises planted with native vines offer privacy and a wind break while also attracting butterflies.

Here’s what our clients say:

Greenery NYC designed and then transformed our outdoor space and gave us a beautiful garden terrace that we enjoy year round. I am so grateful for their professionalism and their expertise. They worked with us to truly understand what we wanted, which is more amazing because until our consultation meeting, I was not sure what direction I wanted to go in and was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the options… I strongly recommend working with Greenery on projects big and small. You will not be disappointed.Gina Z.
Working with Greenery NYC to transform 40 years of neglect, broken stones, weeds that had grown tree height into an enchanting garden was an extraordinary experience. Beyond understanding and executing the needs of the client, a wonderful aesthetic sense, attention to detail, completing the project on time and on budget, Rebecca and her “crew” were a pleasure. This was a very demanding and difficult project. The result is a perfect, serene space.Irene W.
