In the heart of Beacon Hill, this roof top garden takes advantage of the building’s small footprint by dividing the terrace into multiple programmatic areas. Dining for 6, café seating, a spa hot tub, and conversation lounge are all accommodated while capitalizing on city views. The planting plan integrates long blooming, low water-use annuals and perennials to minimize needed maintenance during the year. Custom containers were designed to insulate plant roots and manufactured locally in Massachusetts from recycled materials.
