#roofgarden with #oneworldtrade
This garden 2 years in the planning is planted.
The crane helped but we still had to carry up some trees !

05/21/2019

So grateful to the entire #groundworksgardens team today !
We hoisted 6000 lbs of soil and hundreds of plants up on a roof today to make a garden in the sky !
Thanks to @ninakramer for the opportunity
@liftingsolutions for their professionalism
@ethanames for his impeccable craftmanship and technical support
and @terraform for the beautiful planters

Stay tuned for the planting later this week !

What plants teach us:

Aging with grace and adapting to change.

Last fall we wrangled an ancient hydrangea petiolaris vine into a piece of sculpture.
After surviving months of construction in a temporary container this beauty is ready to shine as the star of a new garden !

Phase 1 of the project is "in the ground"
From the massive amount of soil brought up to the roof to the smallest planting details our Groundworks team did a great job of getting this done on time.... and this pollinator has already made it to the 17th floor !
Big thanks to Nina Kramer ASLA and @newyorkdecks for design and coordination.
Stay tuned for phase 2 next month !

Who needs flowers when you can have this ?
This experiment in low maintenance textures has thrived for over a decade in dry shade in my own front garden.

We often post about new gardens or gardens in progress .... but I love caring for mature gardens too. Maintenance of any garden is critical and is the cornerstone of this urban garden's longevity. There is something so wonderful about coming back each year to see your hard work rewarded with new growth and beauty.

Crazy Plant Ladies through the Ages: Women Naturalists, Botanists, and Horticulturists Who Made History

Plant Ladies ( Crazy- or maybe just smart ! ) Still make history-
On this list - Marjorie Stoneman Douglas- sound familiar ? Not just the name sake of a school where a school shooting happened- read on to see how she helped save The Everglades from development-

Let's acknowledge the amazing historical 'crazy plant ladies' whose love of botanicals made an impact on the way we view plants today.

Make Mine the Burlap Wrap

I'm sure alot of folks on Long Island are now glad they paid their landscapers to do this !

We burlap some tender thngs like magnolias, japanese maples and bamboo but the rest of the plants have to fend for themsleves !

Whether a horticultural necessity or an off-season display of wealth, the now-ubiquitous custom of burlapping has had the unexpected effect of transforming the Hamptons into an enormous art park.
