New York roof garden

This garden reflects the cool inspiration of the busy city and shows the clever use of different materials and textures to make a space which has year round appeal.

The concept

With deep textural walls and open entertaining spaces the New York Roof Garden is inspired by the dramatic sky line of this iconic city.

To really create the sleek modern look of the New York Roof Garden choose well made boutique furniture, glossy glazed pots and retro inspired textiles.

Large glazed pots on the low walls are a great way to add season interest. Choose your favourite colour to build in personalisation.

The New York Roof Garden brings to life the naturalised feel of the planting, its simple to create and you don't need a planting plan just remember to allow for an element of random naturalising in the scheme.

Madera™ Paving

Available in either Birch or Oak shades, this beautiful lightweight long aspect paving looks just like traditional timber but is in fact made out of porcelain.

A contemporary range with the option to utilise single shades, or mix the tonal varieties, Panache walling provides the finishing touch for any stylish garden.

Natural Granite

The perfect choice if you're looking to add a modern look and feel to your outdoor space. With its straight machine cut edges, textured top surface it provides a perfectly minimalist and contemporary backdrop for architectural type planting.

In creating the New York Roof Garden, I took inspiration from both the uber stylish city experience, such as the New York High Line public park and the more intimate surroundings of private roof terraces, which offer a unique ‘get-away’ experience.

The paving

I have used a range of contemporary products from Bradstone which reflect the cool inspiration of the busy city and show the clever use of different materials and textures to make a space which has year round appeal. Large aspect Natural Granite and Madera™ porcelain paving were the perfect choice for this space in the main paved areas. Panache walling was used for the walling and seating areas to really add 'designer detail' to this garden.
