We live in Brooklyn. The Borough of Brooklyn has 2.5 million people. It is the 5th largest city in the United States. We are very fortunate to have this little plot of land. The space is approximately 20 feet wide and 45 feet deep. When we first moved in, the space was a mess out here. Completely overgrown, full of bugs and garbage. It was gross.
We completely gutted the backyard and replanted everything with the exception of that huge tree in the corner. But everything down to the hundreds of pounds of rocks I carried in 50 pound bags, has been brought in by us. It has been a labor of love and a lot of fun. It’s so strange to be in your backyard planting flowers, digging up dirt one minute, walk out your front door and be in the middle of an urban scene moments later.
