Green Walls Have Arrived in Boston!!

Janice Goodman of Cityscapes and George Irwin of Green Living Technologies teamed up on February 26th – 27th to provide ten students from Discovery High School in the Bronx, NY, two students from Silver Lake High School in Kingston, MA, and Cityscapes employees with an extensive two day training session to become Green Roof and Green Wall Certified.  The training was led by George Irwin (below) and the venue was provided by Cityscapes up in our gorgeous Greenhouse.

Together we designed and built a beautiful 6′ x 8′ green wall with the Cityscapes leaf logo incorporated into it!  We chose 4″ schefflera arboricola, philodendron brazil and philodendron neon as the foliage to use in our wall.  Please take a look at the following images of the wall-in-progress during the: planting, installation, and the stunning final result.

We are delighted to receive the highest honor within the Interiorscape magazine.  The winning project was located at The Winter Garden at 111 Huntington Avenue. The retail shopping complex now has the look of a mature garden living within the 23-acre area. The Garden was installed and completed over a three-night time span but looks as if it’s been there for 25 years.

Hope In Bloom

  We recently held a fundraiser to help women with breast cancer with the help of John Hancock, Manulife and an organization called Hope in Bloom.  Hope in Bloom is a charity that designs and plants gardens for women with breast cancer.  In order to help, Cityscapes sold flowering plants, flowers, herb gardens and more to employees in the John Hancock building.   It was held in the Clarendon lobby of the Brown Building on the Friday before Mother’s Day; enticing husbands, sons and daughters to help with a good cause as well as surprise mom with flowers

Janice Goodman, President and Owner of Cityscapes, is helping to design and install a garden retreat for a woman who is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer.  The hope is that these gardens will be sanctuaries and havens for those who are sick and that the energy of nature will be beneficial towards a recovery.

 Here’s a picture of Janice Goodman with Vicky Burgess in Vicky’s backyard garden. 

The team at Cityscapes helped transform her backyard into a retreat for herself and for her family.
