NYC Terrace gardens also offer the opportunity to grow yourself some special treats, such as tasty heirloom vegetables, hard to get herbs or fresh flowers to cut for your table. Terrace gardens are extremely versatile: there’s no limit to the possibilities!
Do You Have Bad Luck With Plants? You Can Still Have A Terrace Garden!
The thought of starting a NYC terrace garden can be intimidating – especially if you’ve never been able to keep a house plant alive or have never gardened before. But don’t despair! Gardening is a very forgiving art form, particularly when you have the guidance of an experienced urban garden designer. Working with a professional, especially at the beginning of your gardening adventure, is a smart way to ensure your terrace garden will look great. So much of creating a great urban garden is understanding the environmental conditions available to you, and selecting the plants that will thrive in those conditions.There are strategies to create micro-climates in urban gardens to allow for plants that require special conditions, such as a humid environment or protection from the wind. Your urban garden designer knows what those strategies are, and can help you implement them so your NYC terrace garden will thrive.
