- Garden Maintenance
Wild Pistil Inc was founded in 2006 by Cary Baker, a life-long gardener and native Vermonter who began transforming blighted urban sites into green sanctuaries shortly after moving to Brooklyn in 1997. Prior to launching her own company, Cary studied design and horticulture at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and worked as a professional gardener for established landscape design firms in NYC and Boston. While her client base and design projects are still rooted in Manhattan and the outer boroughs, Cary now lives 50 miles north of the city in the lower Hudson Valley with her husband and two young daughters.
OUR APPROACH... Wild Pistil develops and implements landscape projects from the ground up, with an emphasis on sustainability through the use of environmentally friendly products and careful attention to
soil health and plant selection. We're inspired by the diversity of scale, color and texture found in naturally occurring landscapes, and strive to bring this elemental beauty to the urban gardens we design and care for. With this as our foundation, we work closely with each client to create a dynamic outdoor living space that meets their unique lifestyle needs and reflects their aesthetic sensibility.
Our creative team includes skilled gardeners and a network of seasoned green-industry affiliates whose expertise spans the field, from permaculture design to custom carpentry and masonry, outdoor lighting, and automated irrigation. The company has installed gardens for the design group Jonathan Adler, and has seen its eclectic client base grow steadily with each passing year. If you have a landscape project you would like to discuss, grand or modest, we would be delighted to speak with you.
