Remodeling and Home Design


We understand that every space we work on is unique and we approach each new design with a fresh creative vision. Although we have a strong sense of garden design and style, and many years of experience, ultimately the client’s vision is the one we strive to bring about.

We have created everything from lush English gardens to artful urban environments. New York is one of the most exciting cities in the world and we strive to design and create one-of-a-kind spaces that work in harmony with this amazing backdrop.

Meet our design team. Take a first step into your dream garden.


Since 1981, Iris Kaplow Landscapes has been a full-service design, installation, and maintenance firm. The gardens and terraces of our private clients have often been featured in national and international publications. Our commercial clients have included some of the most prestigious apartment buildings in NYC. The fashion district along Broadway and Brooklyn’s Willoughby Plaza have benefited from our designs and services, becoming unexpected havens tucked away from urban chaos.


Integrating color and texture with our knowledge of history and the needs of both indigenous and exotic plants, Iris Kaplow Landscapes can create your dream city or country oasis away from the outside world. Explore the nuances of Japanese simplicity, the elegance of Italianate splendor, the tradition of the English Country Garden, or create the mystery of a Moroccan hideaway.

We will coordinate the elements of hardscaping, masonry, custom carpentry, irrigation and lighting with our well-trained, experienced contractors to ensure a seamless transition to your new garden. Our dedicated, experienced gardeners will care for your new plantings and nurture them to maturity.

From Greenwich Village to the Upper East and West Side, from Sutton Place to Riverside Drive, spanning the Tri-state Area and east to the Hamptons, Iris Kaplow and her team will meet with you to discuss how your ideal vision for the perfect garden retreat can be transformed into a reality.
