Ecology + Design

Sustainable Green Landscape Design – Garrison NY

Every landscape is one of a kind. In this case…Wow! Everything starts with a dream, a vision, a concept. Dark light pollution! We needed a working title..hence ‘ Sanctuary Moon’. The entrance and front yard landscape would be titled ‘ Breathe”. I could hear the music before we even began. This was a joint project uniting John Jay Landscape Development with Green Jay Landscape Design.

A main feature would be allowing the outstandingly dramatic rock outcropping to sing! So we began by clearing all the vegetation and creating plant pockets for the rock garden perennials.

A Yin and Yang shaped stream was constructed to feed a small pond at the new patio/sitting area. The video demonstration of this stream construction helps to show a project which involved the repurposing and recycling natural stone from the clients home landscape construction site. This beautiful water feature was a part of the much larger landscape design.



The planting theme is called ‘The Rivers of Color’, consisting of eco-beneficial native perennials and grasses intended to wave in the breeze on the hilltop. Stone pathways with river rock mulch encourage circulation throughout the garden creating an immersion into nature experience. I’d have to say…fun was had by all creating this on of a kind model of Sustainable Green Landscaping.
