The Vegitable Garden after renovation
What was previously just a vegetable garden has undergone extensive renovation. We've reoriented the vegetable beds, put in a central ornament and stone seat. A cutting garden has also gone in at one end and a pumpkin patch at the other. New steps and a stone retaining wall have created a picturesque entrance through a freshly planted herb garden.

The Rooftop Garden plan The plans for the rooftop garden in Boston's South End called for dressing up the previously sparse 14x16-foot deck with a number of attractive elements designed to create a beautiful and intimate space. Additions include box and hanging planters, a trellis to conceal an ugly nearby building, potted spruce trees, and a classic table and chairs set.
