Plant Palette

Each of the sites RG&C has designed, planted and maintained has unique conditions that we have recognized in designing layout and selecting plants, all the sites are part of Roslindale Village as a whole.  RG&C, therefore, began its work in the Village by developing a “Roslindale palette”, a selection of colors and plants that would tie together our separate sites providing cohesion for physically distinct spots while respecting the needs of each site.  Developing the Roslindale palette also gave us an opportunity to choose plantings which would meet our goal for sustainable, low maintenance gardens that are attractive and offer year-round points of interest.
