Greenwich landscape designers featured in New York Times

Two of Greenwich’s top garden and landscape designers were prominently featured in a July 2 New York Times Home Section story called The Garage That Bloomed.

The story was about the founding and creation of The Lotus Garden 30 years ago.

The 7000 sq.ft. rooftop community garden, which has been featured in countless publications and garden directories, has long been considered one of New York City’s hidden treasures.

Thirty years ago, as they were just starting their working partnership, Mark and Carrie Greenwald of Maher & Greenwald Fine Gardens negotiated a watershed agreement between the Zeckendorf organizations — one of the country’s biggest developers at the time — directly with the local West Side community to construct and endow this unique garden.

The Greenwalds continue to mix public and community work in with their thriving residential design/build practice; they have just won another National Landscape Design Award from the Perennial Plant Association for a local residential project overlooking Norwalk harbor and a Greenwich Green and Clean award for their gardens at the Town Hall Annex on Havemeyer Avenue.

Other local public works include the Byram Shubert and Cos Cob libraries, exit 28 (Round Hill Road) on the Merritt Parkway and a number of projects for the Greenwich Housing Authority (Town Hall Annex, Greenwich Close at Brookfield/Field Point.)
