In Park Slope, Brooklyn, a specimen roof garden adds another layer to gracious brownstone living, with an intimate landscape of decking and railing in ipe, stainless steel, and fritted glass. The mixed elevations and textures of self-seeding Tunic Flowers, Buffalo Grass, Aster, Dianthus, Blue Fescue, and Flowering Sedum create an immersive meadow experience, while delicate material touches like reflective surfaces, colorful tinted glass, and perforated lanterns evoke a warm, almost cinematic space. A backyard garden comes alive in winter with a coral-barked Sango-Kaku Maple, providing a shady respite in summer months.
