Let me introduce you to Amber Freda – AKA the Gotham Gardener. (I would love that nick name) .  Amber creates gardens like this one in NYC.  Roof top gardens are particularly challenging sites.  There is heat, wind, access, building facilities and maintenance issues to compound any regular gardening and design challenges.  Regardless, Amber seems to have been able to create lush spaces like this one with the added benefit of dramatic skylines to make truly extraordinary gardens.
