New York ASLA Chapter




City Courtyard, adjacent to Manhattan's Central Park, is a small retreat from the congestion of the city. The City Courtyard fountain uses solid slaps of Renaissance gray limestone to replicate the materials in the base course of the wall and stairs, all lending to the monolithic scale of this intimate garden space.

The New York City Department of Parks & Rec was awarded an Honor award for Printers Park Playground. Thomas Balsley Associates received an Honor award for the Riverside Park South waterfront project in NYC.

 




The "Briar Patch" garden at this home on Long Island draws its design cues from the understated architecture on the property. Clear cedar siding is used in place of cedar shake, along with large, horizontal expanses of glass, void of mullions and muntin bars. In late spring the paths come alive with Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis), Flowering Allium (Allium 'Gladiator, and Blue Catmint (Nepeta sp.).

The land that Printers Park Playground in Longwood, Bronx now occupies was once a part of the estate of Richard March Hoe (1812-1886). In the 1970s, the buildings and land were condemned, then turned into asphalt tennis courts in the mid-1980 before once again being closed to the public because of unsafe conditions.
