The Outsider: Gardening on Concrete in Williamsburg

FRONT YARDS, BACKYARDS, ROOFTOPS, DECKS…whatever outdoor space a Brooklyn homeowner or renter can stake out…all are fair game for my new weekly column for the Brooklyn real-estate website Brownstoner.com. The Outsider debuts today, Sunday, April 22, and will run every Sunday at 8AM through gardening season.

First up: a 13’x30′ concrete slab on which garden designer Tyler Horsley has worked horticultural wonders.

To see Tyler’s garden as it has evolved over a dozen years and in all seasons, click right here. And please let me know how you like it.
