Birch and Basil Design is a boutique landscape design firm based in New York City that creates beautifully curated outdoor spaces. We believe nature and landscapes provide life changing benefits.
You might say we’re obsessed with quality. We hand select plants from top quality growers for our installations, build planters, pergolas, landscape elements and bespoke structures out of stylish and long lasting materials, and care for gardens with an all organic approach.
The principal, Kristin Monji, brings a California sensibility to East Coast gardens, having spent her formative years climbing trees and exploring orange groves in Southern California. Kristin is a landscape designer, horticulturist and certified arborist from Orange County, California. She is a graduate of the University of California, Irvine. Her partner, Cory, is a former mechanical engineer and graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. He wears many hats in the business, and also works as a photographer.
We design, install and care for gardens in New York City and the surrounding tri-state area. We take pride in our creative horticultural artistry and in providing the highest level of service tailored to each garden and client. In addition to landscape and garden design, we offer the following related services: landscape lighting, drip irrigation, pergola design, outdoor kitchens, backyard and patio design and rooftop and terrace design. We are specialists in rooftop, terrace, townhouse and urban backyard gardens and in creating spaces for outdoor living and dining. We’d love to work with you to create the landscape of a lifetime.
