Urban Garden

By Scott Byron & Co., Inc.

Maintenance of this urban garden offers some unique challenges. Due to the rooftop’s limited access and direct sun exposure, all planters have drip irrigation, and all vegetables and plants selected are sun-tolerant. Also, closely monitoring the garden and adjusting irrigation run times has been extremely important, especially throughout summer. Furthermore, due to the tightness of the space, we consistently monitor and treat the shrubs and perennials as needed by providing weekly maintenance. Also, by overseeding and adjusting irrigation as needed, we can ensure the sod is watered adequately, thus keeping the lawn healthy despite the lack of airflow in the space. Finally, the client has five Pomeranians. They are small and don’t venture far from the dog-run area. Yet, we always ensure that walkways are cleared of all landscape debris. Also, whenever we apply treatments, we ensure the treatments for all materials are pet and pollinator friendly. Thus, ensuring the client’s goal of attracting birds and pollinators to their urban garden.
