- New York, NY, USA
Small urban backyards can seem as much an extra room as an outdoor space. They offer a distinct design opportunity, and with the right touch, they can become a world unto themselves. A Mediterranean palette of boxwood, clipped yews, crape myrtle, lavender and santolina evokes a garden in Provence. Ivy geraniums grow full from the sunny balcony above. Salvaged stones selected for paving and the rustic beams that trim the fence complete the composition. This project received a Gold LEED certification by the US Green Building Council.
