Many of you have been blessed with a green thumb, as we've seen by the Great Outdoors you've shown us this month. But there are those of you (admit it) that won't be winning any Green Thumb Wars anytime soon. This shouldn't mean you're relegated to a concrete jungle; rather, hire a professional to help you. Sustain Landscape Design in Brooklyn is one such company. They will design and build your garden from the ground up using only sustainable gardening methods, native and drought tolerant plants, and water wise irrigation techniques...
Here's what they have to say for themselves:
At Sustain we believe every great garden design begins with an understanding of how the space will be used. During the initial consultation we will discuss your vision for your garden. Maybe you love to cook and want to have fresh herbs all summer long. Maybe you want a fragrant garden that reminds you of France. Or perhaps you want to be able to sit in your garden, close your eyes and listen to the sound of tall grasses whistling in the wind. Once we have an understanding of your vision we will apply sustainable gardening methods to create a garden that fits you personally, is kind to the environment, and is sustainable for years to come.
They'll do custom wood and stone work, design a custom bulb garden for your space, windowbox, container and tree pit gardens, and overall garden maintenance. Email info (at) sustainlandscapedesign.com for more information.
