Amber has taught dozens of classes in garden design at both the New York and Brooklyn botanical gardens. Her client list includes many of the world's most notables, including George Soros, Anna Quindlen, Brett Icahn, Joseph Edelman, David Faucon, Reshma Shetty, Aetna founder and CEO Mark Bertolini, and make-up guru Bobbi Brown.
Amber has been interviewed as a guest expert by the CBS New York Morning Show. She has also been featured in The New York Times, the Associated Press, Better Homes & Gardens, HGTV, Daily Candy, New York House, New York Resident, Garden Design, Design Bureau, and New York Magazine.
Amber started her own business in 2004 with a desire to provide high-end, detail-oriented urban garden design. She wanted to offer clients a design aesthetic that was really clean, contemporary, and grounded. By grounded, she means a design should feel connected to the space's architecture, the individual style of the client, and also the pulse of the city around it.
Amber personally oversees the design of every project from start to finish. Your project will never be handed over to a sales rep or an installation crew, like most big landscaping companies, where the owner is typically only there for the initial consultation. Amber will be there working on your project every step of the way, from the initial design all the way up to the actual day of installation, making sure that every detail meets her high standards.
Amber is also available for winter garden design consultations and overseeing installations in warm climate cities, including Miami, Houston, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.
We also offer clients the opportunity for a more interactive gardening experience that helps people to connect on a deeper level to both their gardens and themselves. Healing gardens engage the sense on multiple levels through a combination of aesthetics, fragrance, tactile experiences, and sound. Amber can also recommend herbal bath and tea recipes using herbs from your garden that will assist with your ongoing healing process.
"I highly recommend Amber Freda. The first great thing about Amber is that she listens. The next fantastic thing about Amber is that she is that rare combination of artist and great business person. Amber creates the landscape of your dreams and at the same time is very professional.”- Pamela K., Park Ave. rooftop terrace
"I'll make this concise and precise. Amber Freda's company is the best because: 1.) Her response time is extremely fast. I typically hear back on calls/emails within 1 hour. 2.) Her pricing is very reasonable. 3.) My garden turned out so great that the NY Post now wants to do an article on it. 4.) I am an extremely particular and discerning client. That she has been able to satisfy me says a lot. 5.) I have tried 2 other companies in the past and they did not deliver items 1 - 4 above nearly as well as Freda has. Save your valuable time. Don't bother calling anyone else... just call Freda.- Ryan C., Brooklyn terrace/backyard
"Amber and her team did an excellent job. She had great ideas on the design and was quick and efficient with the installation on my 1500+ sq ft terrace. Honestly, it's like we added a whole additional room on our condo. Not only is it beautiful, I truly believe that she helped to substantially increase the value of our property. I would highly recommend her and her team."- Kimberley H., Park Slope terrace
"I truly cannot say enough about Amber and her team. They were amazing, and I went kicking and screaming into having someone landscape our terrace, but I am so grateful that we did. She took an empty 800 square foot terrace and turned it into an oasis in a matter of months from start to finish. She was professional, reliable, and excellent at her craft. I am so grateful to her that we have a veritable garden in the middle of New York City to enjoy, and to which we escape constantly. She's wonderful, and you should not think twice about contacting her."- Jeannie U., Harlem roof terrace garden
"A year ago we moved into a brand new apartment on the UWS with an 800 sq ft deck. Amber knew just what to do with the space and it looks gorgeous. The planters, the plants, the pots and furniture all work in absolute harmony. She nailed our aesthetic perfectly. We're moving to a garden level brownstone apartment in a few weeks, and you can bet Amber will be creating magic for us once again."- James E., UWS roof and backyard
"Amber did a great job. The design was wonderful, the plants healthy and thriving. Amber was always responsive, thoughtful, and fair. The installation team were spot on and seemed to really enjoy what they were doing. Prices were very reasonable for the high quality she delivered."- Rita S., TriBeCa co-op roof terraces
