A beautiful townhouse located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side has four separate garden terraces from the ground floor to the 6th floor rooftop. All four spaces are planted with a diverse mix of perennials, trees, shrubs, annuals and flowering bulbs. Careful select is paid to species for continual but changing seasonal bloom and color. Selected herbs and vegetables are planted on the top floor for use in the residents’ kitchen.
