Before & After Garden: Brooklyn Beautiful

City gardens are always so intriguing to me.  The fact that there are so many things that are unchangeable and require addressing always seems more challenging and interesting than a garden where the slate is wide open…great sun, great access, unlimited options….never seems to force the type of creativity that I enjoy.

This garden is especially interesting because of the way they balcony was finished off to create a more interesting garden space as well as second floor access.   I love to how it shows that even with the simplest of designs and construction, a space that is totally useless and uninviting can transform into something beautiful.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
