New York Roof Garden Design By Paul Hervey-Brooks

NEW YORK ROOF
Garden

BY PAUL HERVEY-BROOKES

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.

In creating the New York Roof Garden, Paul has taken 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
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.

Watch and listen as Paul explains where his inspiration came from and what you need to do to achieve the same look in your very own garden area.

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.
