Gaze at a Brooklyn Green Roof


We’re wrapping it up on our roof garden. R* took the umbrella down last weekend; think he put it under the bed. This weekend, we’re going to cover the rose bushes, pull the annual herbs, and stack up the chairs. So long to our first summer of gardening.

This winter, we’re planning to stay energized with photos, gardening books, and professional gardeners’ portfolios. First up: this stunning green roof garden in Brooklyn created by Timothy, The Organic Gardener.

How did your roof garden grow this year? What’s inspiring you as the cold weather rolls in?

    Do you have any tips on how to winterize a roof top garden. Both the plants, and preserving the furniture. Thanks, AR

    I would recommend wrapping the furniture in heavy tarpaulin, and securing it with multiple bunji cords. Place the furniture in a closed, wind resistant corner, and then wrap the plants up in burlap, and place them under the coverage of the patio/roof table. Yhat should hold them for the hard core east coast winter. Oh yes, don’t also forget to remove all thermal lights, take out the rechargeable batteries, and store them in a safe and dry place over the winter period.
