Home Street, The Bronx

Urban garden with wild grasses, plants in front of a red brick building with barred windows and a "No Parking" sign.

The front yard of a high density apartment building was turned into a green space with native plants.  One large central planter was lined with stormwater detention cells to enhance the water storage capacity.  Many smaller planters were built around the periphery of the front yard for residents to plant vegetables and herbs.
