Celestial Wild Garden

Rye, NY

This Rye property started with a traditional backyard lawn and patio that was habitually underused because of a mosquito issue (the property borders a wetland).

GJLD removed the lawn and designed a custom water feature set in a lush perennial garden. The new designed habitat invites predators, like dragonflies, to keep the mosquito populations in check.

Meandering garden paths allow you to take in the long-blooming perennials and hummingbirds that visit them. Mosquitos aren’t an issue anymore.



  • Constructed waterfall, streams, and ponds
  • Rainwater harvesting & passive irrigation system
  • Restored woodland and wetland habitat
