Brilliant Brownstone Backyard

A narrow backyard gets a lush new look with colorful plantings and a rounded pergola.

Before: Deserted Backyard

Elle Gougen, Marc Elie and their daughter, Jazmine, love living in New York City. Two years ago they bought the house of their dreams—a brownstone on the Upper West Side. Living in such a fast-paced city, they love their calm and comfortable house. Now they just want to extend this comfort to their yard.

Elle and Marc love their Manhattan lifestyle and their quiet, comfortable house. Now, they just want the yard to match the home. They would love to transform the backyard from a weed-filled patch of dirt into a lush and private refuge.
