Double Feature: Gunn Landscape Architecture / Vert Gardens

With the warmer weather comes the city dweller’s desire to spend a lot more time outside.  For those with the means, this may mean your own private terrace or rooftop, a true luxury in the Big Apple.

For this week’s post, I thought it would be appropriate to focus on some great talent that designs and builds these exterior spaces in New York City.  I’ve had the pleasure to work with Alec Gunn and his design team at Alec Gunn Landscape Architecture, as well as his landscaping construction division, Vert Gardens.  Judging by their portfolio of collaborations with architects such as Deborah Berke  & Partners and Meyer Davis Studio, it’s obvious they have established themselves as one of the premier landscape design and construction companies in the City.

Tell me: Where are YOUR favorite outdoor spaces? I’d love to hear from you.

Please take a look at some of their great work here:
