2011 update!

Fall is starting to show up now after the tropical storms, bringing to a close and amazing spring and summer for City Beautiful Carpentry. We started with our 12th annual appearance at GreenThumb's Grow Together Conference, teaching people how to build their own garden structures. We did more of the same returning to East New York Farms! and starting with Just Food's new program Farm School.
And then there's been the work. We created a beautiful fence out of recycled Coney Island Ipe' for one client and branched out into the abstract creating a trellis and planter for another. We've also been working on a teak deck project, made up some Trex planters for a building complex and made some beautiful natural benches and stools out of reclaimed beams. If you'd like to consult with us regarding a project, feel free to contact us at

Soho Penthouse Roof Deck

This rooftop garden creates a lush and private setting on a once open tar roof. Bringing plants, flowers and song birds to the urban environment fulfills our mission of
"Creating the Green in between".

The designs of this garden highlight City Beautiful Carpentry's skill at creating beautiful custom decks, planter boxes, benches, arbors and cabinetry.

The overall accomplishment of this project adds an increased amount of usable space and an improvement in the quality of life for our clients.

Includes planter box/bench units, and a forest-full of bamboo for privacy and meditation.
This is an outdoor jacuzzi, completely encased in ipe.
