Featuring 50 gardens on 250-acres, the New York Botanical Garden is one of the premier botanical gardens in the United States. Taking advantage of the site’s diverse growing conditions, the new Native Plant Garden displays a variety of native plants and water features combined in an integrated and comprehensive design. Planting areas include native woodlands, meadows, plant beds, and areas where new plants are integrated with mature specimens. Pine & Swallow studied existing site soils and geotechnical conditions, reviewed proposed design concepts, provided specifications for soil and drainage, and evaluated soil submittals.
