Planning Your NYC Urban Garden? Don't Forget The Furniture
March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. It's a transition time where winter weather finally gives way from preventing us from being able to do much about our NYC urban garden spaces – except dream and plan and pore over garden catalogs! The intoxicating first signs of spring are all it takes to get the especially eager gardener headed outdoors, shovel in hand.But not so fast! As your NYC urban garden expert, I have to tell you: March is a treacherous time. We're not safely past a surprise spring snow storm or cold snap. But don't worry! There's still gardening to do. Now is the time to really think through the furniture choices you'll be making in your rooftop or patio gardening.
Don't worry. We're not talking about your Grandma's patio furniture here – unless you're one of the fortunate few who have a Grandma with a rocking design aesthetic. Today's garden furniture choices center around our increasingly active lifestyles, serving multiple purposes. You want to choose pieces that work equally well for entertaining, relaxing, and as an extension of your family's living space.

Not only are they aware of all the emerging trends in garden furniture design – did you know some of the most amazing pieces available are made from earth-friendly, extremely durable materials like concrete, recycled plastics, and bamboo?– but they have the designer's eye to ensure your urban garden is an accurate reflection of your family's style.
NYC urban garden furniture can go beyond the expected seating and tables. Talk to your garden designer about your plans for outdoor cooking.
