Saint Paul’s Churchyard

Manhattan, NY

Working in collaboration with Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects to rehabilitate this overburdened historic cemetery located in lower Manhattan, the scope of site improvements include upgrades to walking paths and seating areas, new paving at the chapel entrances and landings and new irrigation system throughout. Landscape improvements include extensive soil remediation and tree canopy pruning to improve growing conditions to establish lawn, slope stabilization with ground cover plantings where low light levels and slope conditions preclude turf. Evergreen shrubs to screen utilities, storage areas, structures and flowering shrubs to enhance visitors experience throughout the seasons.
