Townhouse & Garden On Perry Street
Two gardens were created for a 19th century Italianate brownstone in the West Village. In the front, a specimen Dr. Merrill magnolia and delicate plantings of enkianthus and hosta contrast with the iron entry gate, brownstone curbs and massive bluestone slabs. The rear courtyard is enclosed by a wood and mirror trellis fence. It features antique bluestone pavers, custom iron and stone garden furnishings as well as gray terra cotta pots handmade for the garden in Italy. The garden's plant palette includes boxwoods, ivies, hostas, ferns, clematis and seasonal plantings. All grow side by side in the dappled shade of the old Norway maple tree.
