Beautiful is WaveHill and The Bronx Botanical Gardens . I visit it often gather design ideas when purchasing botanicals for the courtyard gardens. The Bronx Zoo is used as a reference for mulches on the grounds.

It's impressive how many different types of items the courtyard has acquired. Every year the garden gains more botanicals.  Maybe one day these gardens will be renamed The Bronx Botanical Courtyard Apartments.
