This is a 1,200 square foot urban rooftop garden located in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. It is a simple plan that has a wood walkway that links two areas on either side of a central skylight, one a deck with seating and dining, and the other a synthetic lawn for lounge chairs. These two open seating areas are separated by a central planting area that is essentially a greenroof, with a mix of wild perennials and grasses. The perimeter is defined by fiberglass planters with a mix of lavender, roses and grasses.
