*BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS*
This classic Bay Ridge apartment building serves as an example of how a garden can transform a physical space.
Weeds and invasive plants, in a small amount of time, can take over any backyard. This client, bought a small container of bamboo, that within a few seasons dominated the landscape.
We removed all of the invasive species and weeds, set down a slate patio, and built raised planter beds on the perimeter of the garden. Also, we inserted a planting divider to give comfortable space to the upper and lower tenants.
