Hastings-on-Hudson, NY

This one-acre suburban property marries culture, history, and a natural landscape aesthetic. Native woodland, meadow, and pond plantings reflect the region’s indigenous landscape while a remnant cutting garden and rustic gates, arbors, and furniture (including a circular bench made from recycled New York City curbstone) complement the architectural style of the house. The property owners have actively promoted what they call their “New World Garden” as a model for how to fuse historic and ecological restoration.
