We love the CITY and we love NATURE…successfully merging the two is the ultimate challenge for any urban landscape. Our goal is to create an URBAN PARADISE.

We are urban horticulturalists, landscape dreamers AND city dwellers… All qualities needed for making the best garden design company in the New York City.

Urban backyard gardens are among the most difficult design challenges any landscape designer faces.  At GROW we approach each project with fresh eyes and years of experience to help lead us to creating a garden paradise in just a couple hundred square feet of land.

Creating outdoor “living rooms” for hotels, penthouses, terraces, rooftops and urban backyards for over 20 years.

We have created breathtaking gardens for luxury hotels all over Manhattan.

Check out two or our favorite hotel projects…the Garden Park at the James Hotel in Soho and the Dog Park Garden at the Soho Grand Hotel

With two decades of experience and a reputation for excellence, we deliver great design combined with meticulous and timely installations.

Sky’s the Limit when it comes to the creativity of our urban landscape designs. And fast….we are instant gratification specialists!

 

The challenge of any urban garden is in keeping it URBAN.  It shouldn’t look like a garden in the Hamptons.

Why can’t a green roof be livable?  Why should we give up precious living space for plants…let’s SHARE!

We are proud to have designed one of the “Best Hotel Gardens in the World”  at The James Hotel in Soho.

We love creating modern botanical arrangements weekly for some of the best restaurants and hotels in New York City

Specializing in unique containers, surprising florals and natural botanicals…if not plucked from the garden…then at least inspired by!

Garden inspired, urban influence…our naked botanicals not only expose the roots of the plant…but the simple beauty of nature.

Custom Zinc and Teak Table

When I design a garden I like to designe every aspect..the lights, the furniture, the cushions, the planters...as well a s the plants. This garden has zinc and wood containers square and rectangular containers so I designed an oval zinc and teak table to compliment them. The cushions were made simple color blocks of plain outdoor fabric.
