Subscribe to our channel for more great videos at http://www.youtube.com/NashvilleLandscaping This video shows us removing Leyland Cypress shrubs that were too large for the space and us planting Hicks Yews which will give just as much privacy without overtaking the space. This project was performed in Nashville Tennessee and is about Privacy Plantings. It is also a backyard parking area landscape remodel project.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden Visitor Center – Project of the Week 5/16/16

Stay on top of the Greenroof & Greenwall World by subscribing here: http://bit.ly/1HAbujW.

Founded in 1910, the 52-acre Brooklyn Botanic Garden is an urban botanic garden that connects people to the world of plants, fostering delight and curiosity while inspiring an appreciation and sense of stewardship of the environment. Embedded into an existing hillside in its northeast corner, the new LEED Gold certified Diane H. and Joseph S. Steinberg Visitor Center offers an exciting and innovative gateway into the garden. Designed by Weiss/Manfredi, the -million Visitor Center is a model of energy-efficient design, including earth-sheltered construction, a geoexchange system for heating and cooling, fritted-glass walls and a striking undulating green roof. Seamlessly melding architecture and landscape, the 20,000-square-foot sinuous glass building has dual roofs: pleated copper on top of the gift shop on the east side, which will eventually oxidize to a greenish patina, and the leaf-shaped living roof on the west.

The serpentine form of the living roof hosts over 40,000 plants in a richly textured variety of grasses, flowering perennials, and bulbs, including a number of native species. Thriving in all seasons, the biodiverse green roof attracts a variety of birds and pollinators. The slope is a prominent visual element of the site, pitched from 4 to 27 degrees, including a peak in the roof’s center. Roofmeadow designed the green roof profile and the slope stabilization system. Roofmeadow and Sika Sarnafil (the waterproofing provider), are warranting the assembly for a period of 20 years. As a condition of the warranty New York Green Roofs, who also installed the green roof, is maintaining the roofscape. Landscape architecture firm HM White Site Architects incorporated the green roof into the site’s stormwater management strategy and the vegetated roof is expected to harvest almost 200,000 gallons of water each year. The multi-award winning Brooklyn Botanic Garden Visitor Center is an inspired example of innovative and sustainable design with its engaging exhibits, enhanced visitor amenities, and gracious event space.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Sakura Matsuri, Cherry Blossom Festival, New York City, USA

Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Sakura Matsuri, Cherry Blossom Festival in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York City, USA

A weekend celebrating traditional and contemporary Japanese culture!

2016 marks the 35th anniversary of Sakura Matsuri, BBG’s annual cherry blossom festival. Known as New York City’s rite of spring, the weekend offers over 60 events and performances that celebrate traditional and contemporary Japanese culture.

Taiko Drumming • Cosplay Fashion Show • Tea Ceremonies • J-Pop • Samurai Sword Fighting • Manga • Vintage Kimonos • Ikebana Flower Arranging • BBG Parasol Society and More!

The Garden has more than 200 cherry trees of forty-two Asian species and cultivated varieties, making it one of the foremost cherry-viewing sites outside Japan. The first cherries were planted at the garden after World War I, a gift from the Japanese government. Each spring at BBG, when the trees are in bloom, a month-long cherry blossom viewing festival called Hanami is held at the Cherry Esplanade, culminating in a weekend celebration called Sakura Matsuri. The Esplanade features two rows of cherry trees with trails and sitting areas on the side. Visitors may also sit on the field of grass between the rows of cherry trees. Cherry trees are found on the Cherry Esplanade and Cherry Walk, in the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, and in many other locations in the Garden. Depending on weather conditions, the Asian flowering cherries bloom from late March or early April to mid-May. The many different species bloom at slightly different times, and the sequence is tracked online at Cherry Watch, on the BBG website.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden was founded in 1910
