TANK 2012 Client photographs

These photographs were taken of the roof deck (May 2012) by our client and show the wonderful planting and how truly green it is up on a roof in the midst of industrial/commercial Chelsea. There are also a few photos of the clients' adorable cat Jenny within the space.

Thank you for your interest. The cushions were custom made to fit the bench. The bench seat is 22" deep, which is rather deep but they are used for storage too. I hope this helps with your project.

I'm sorry I can't answer that as I don't deal with the plants themselves - just the space. Thank you for your interest.

The planter box / bench is Ipe (which weathers to a nice silver grey color) and the table/chairs is cedar. Thank you for your interest.

how was the arch achieved? Is the entire trellis made of wood or are there metal beams?

Water is able to fall directly through the edges of each paver. The pavers are raised on pedestal system for easy drainage below.

The tree is a red maple. Google 'Acer tree' and you will come across lots of different varieties. I hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

7. Create a natural home for your garden's wildlife. Slow-growing hedges, especially native varieties, will give even the smallest garden the benefits of providing shelter and food for birds and insects. The last thing a Slow Gardener needs in the garden is topiary or a fast-growing hedge that needs a lot of time-consuming clipping and care.
Think about the view from above. If you live in the city, an arched trellis like this one will ensure that no neighbors — not even those towering over you — can see what's going on.
Laura Gaskill added this to Give Your Compact Patio Some Major Style
Build overhead privacy. An arched trellis can provide privacy, even if you live in a city with tall buildings all around. Sitting beneath the trellis with the sunlight filtering down and green vines twining, you’ll hardly remember you have any neighbors.See more of this rooftop garden in Manhattan
Christine Tusher added this to Grow a Lush Privacy Screen
Trellises are another way to plant vertically, although it can take years for plants to climb and fill them in. The solution: Create lush layers with a low hedge in a raised planter box.9 Low-Growing Hedges That Make Good Neighbors
