Founder Hannah Edmunds, a veteran horticulturist and designer has assembled a team of experts in horticulture, arbori-culture, masonry, carpentry and metal work. Our approach is practical, collaborative and always seeking new and inspiring ways to connect people to their natural spaces. Hannah has over 20 years experience as a gardener, designer and certified arborist. Her areas of interest include plant and soil science, horticulture, landscape design and forestry management.
In addition to running her business she is co-chair of the Garden Stewardship committee of the Gowanus Canal Conservancy in her neighborhood of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
In this volunteer work, as well as her professional work, she is guided by the belief that biological diversity of plants, vitality of the soil, proper management of storm-water runoff and composting efforts provide essential benefits to individuals and communities.
Hannah Edmunds is such a joy to work with. She knows her plants as if they were all her children, knowing which needs just a bit of sun, and which a full blast of it, and which will go well next to which to create that urban oasis we all want. A mother’s vision? And she has a lovely, tender manner that turns the whole thorny business of actually making it happen - the plotting, the buying, the digging - into a delightful unfolding.

As the design architect for a duplex penthouse renovation in Chelsea, I had the pleasure of collaborating with Hannah on the terrace layout and plantings. Her impressive comprehensive knowledge of plants, hands-on approach and enthusiasm for her work were instrumental in the success of the project.
