We’re finally getting around to doing some landscaping. But the problem with landscaping, in my opinion, is that it’s done after the fact – after you have nothing left in your budget, after you’re tired from all the decisions that led up to this point…you get the picture.
If I ever go through the build process again (which I really hope to get to do again!)…I’m going to factor in all these decisions ahead of time. Because when you see the work of a firm like Rees Roberts + Partners you can really get a sense of how good (great!) landscaping can transform a property.
These homes featured below are smack in the middle of Manhattan. As much as I adore New York, I wouldn’t exactly call it clean. But these properties would transport you somewhere far beyond the smog!

Some pretty phenomenal landscaping, care of Israeli based Chyutin Architects. The Deichmann square is part of Ben-Gurion University.
Photos care of Contemporist.
