Greenwich Village BackyardTransitional Patio, New York

A dark backyard was given a new life with dramatic additions of built in planting beds, custom cut salvaged pavers, green screen trellis and a ton of charm. The reclaimed barn doors add a focal point to the east wall while the custom built two-tier planting system allows vines to fill this garden which spans two floors of the client's home.

Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Reasons to Love Vertical GardensAug 20, 2015

6. Vertical gardens make a small outdoor space feel more expansive. Plants blur boundaries along fence lines, creating a more open feeling in this walled city garden. Try adding a mixture of potted plants, greenery in large planters and vertical plantings to create layers of lush green in your own urban yard.

Location: Greenwich Village, New York, New YorkSize: 692 square feet (64 square meters) Designer: Jeffrey Erb of Jeffrey Erb Landscape DesignPrimary challenges: Standing water and mosquitos resulting from an inadequate drainage system, a dilapidated 15-foot-tall fence that enclosed the space, no direct access from a street or alleyway, construction noise restrictions, dark shade created by neighboring buildings and no ground-level planting beds. Additionally, the garden would be viewed from two levels.In New York City, bulk-material deliveries are impractical and discouraged, so everything from hardscape to trees had to be hand-carried through the house and down a flight of stairs.Homeowner requests: The homeowners, both artists who work in the fashion industry, requested an eclectic design that effectively married contemporary style with that of aged European gardens. They also wanted a fountain, flowing brickwork, soft supplemental lighting, an open place to create art and entertain, and lots of green.
