The Organic Gardener is a DESIGN / BUILD firm that specializes in outdoor spaces in New York City. Our designs evolve from understanding a site's unique requirements, dictated by both its natural and built surroundings, and by the client's aesthetic desires. From initial sketches to the selection of plants, hardscape materials such as stones and wood, irrigation, lighting, furniture and a maintenance plan, The Organic Gardener is devoted to eloquence in form, purpose and craftsmanship.




consultation & site visit:

An initial visit to the site and discussion of client's goals and desires begins our process. Space is measured and notes and photographs are taken to record light, existing plant material, surrounding properties, interior style and building limitations/requirements for material delivery.


After additional site visits, schematic sketches and technical drawings are completed. Estimates are gathered and presented to clients, along with drawings and inspiration boards. Plant material is discussed and client feedback is noted. Additional renderings and/or construction quotes are provided if need be.


Municipal building permits, if required, are secured. The Organic Gardener oversees all aspects of the job, from site demolition to in-shop fabrication of custom planters, and will be on-site regularly until project completion.


Maintenance programs are offered and encouraged for all projects. We enjoy educating our clients about plants and value the opportunity to ensure that our gardens thrive.
