I am really surprised by all of these good reviews though it is why I selected Tommy in the first place. He was hardly responsive from the getgo but I figured that was because he was so good and busy so I tolerated it. He was a noshow for one appointment and never called after I had already left work early. Frustrating enough. However, my biggest complaint is that he ignored the insight from prior owners?? gardening attempts and our garden??s shade conditions (which I stressed to him many times) and unfortunately failed with the majority of his plantings. While he did refund the money for the three most expensive items (which were COMPLETE failures), I haven??t heard anything from him on the other items. He continues to ignore my emails. I do understand that gardening is extremely challenging and unpredictable but I had expected an ??expert? gardener to at least try again instead of just giving up (AND ignoring the customer)! Disappointing, unprofessional and ineffective!

Tommy transformed our neglected 90 foot Park Slope garden into a wonderful place with special spaces and beautiful plants. His knowledge and ability to interact made him a pleasure to work with.

I walk my dog past the restaurant Locando Verde in Tribeca every day, every season & I am so thrilled that they are enhancing the neighborhood by filling the outdoors with incredibly beautiful potted arrangements of trees, flowers & even fruit bushes(last year's rasberries were yummy when I picked one or two, Oops). I even photographed the winter scenario, it looked so nice. Then the next setting was the tulips & daffodils which said spring, even on those wintery days we had in April. Now the summer plantings have begun with the grasses swaying in the wind, the passion flower vines climbing the bamboo rungs & the annuals brightening up my day. Today I finally asked who did this wonderland of plants & was told Urban Green Gardeners (someone named Tommy)so here I am to tell you how fabulous everything looks.

as a recent transplant (no pun intended) i was at a bit of a loss in how to find a competant and reasonably priced gardener. i am happy to report that i found both in urban green city gardens (tommy and tony). having little knowledge and even less time to involve myself with my new and barren backyard, i handed the reins to tommy and he did not disappoint. he posesses an encyclopedic knowledge of all things green and an impressive artistic eye--he has taught me alot about why he chose what he did and how i can best maintain my new small paradise. i am grateful for this site for putting me in touch with tom.\r

Tommy, and Tony have been nothing but efficient, and accommodating to me and my terrace garden in Tribeca. Tommy provided me with several rendered drawings of his proposal for my approval, and took extensive time to answer all of my questions before completion of the work. I was beyond pleased at their utmost efficiency, and artistic flair for the transformation of my space. A rare gem!

I live in a small Brownstone Co-Op, and Thomas and his team transformed my Roof Top Terrace into a wonderfully green urban oasis. It transforms me everyday I come home from work. They did such an amazing job that my Co-Op Board and my Neighbor next door in a private house both hired him. He is truely one of the most kind and generous individuals you will meet. He will not only transform your garden but he will also transform your heart & soul through his delightful conversation. Not only did he know everything and anything about plants but he was also extremely helpful in getting me wonderful roof top planters. And he was also was able to refer me to his regular person who installed an irrigation system. THE BEST OF THE BEST in a city full of expectations!!

He was hardly responsive from the getgo but I figured that was because he was so good so I tolerated it. He was a noshow for one appointment and never called after I had already left work early. Frustrating enough. However, my biggest complaint is that he ignored the insight from prior owners gardening attempts and our gardens shade conditions which I stressed to him many times and unfortunately failed with the majority of the stuff he planted. While he did refund the money for the three most expensive items (which were COMPLETE failures), I havent heard anything from him on the other items. He continues to ignore my emails. I do understand that gardening is extremely challenging and unpredictable but I had expected an expert gardener would have at least tried a second time instead of just giving up (AND ignoring the customer)! Very disappointing and not very professional!

Cons: Unreliable, unprofessional, poor outcomes

I recently relocated here from LA and was missing all my greenery and flowers. I had a rundown balcony in Windsor Terrace that they completely transformed. Both Thomas Little and Anthony Siniscalchi worked with me and they took the time to draw up various design plans and plant options - taking into consideration the size of my terrace, the sun and shade and the seasons in NY.

They answered all my questions, explored all my options and worked with my budget.

Now when I look out it's like being on the West Coast again. I love these guys!!

Pros: Artistic, transformational, stylized and amazing!

Cons: Not one!!

Tommy and his staff were absolutely wonderful, creative and professional. They took the time to listen and plan exactly what we wanted for our garden - simple, clean looking, easy-to-maintain, beautiful and of course at a reasonable price. In a course of 2 days, our garden was transformed from a forest of weeds to the Garden of Eden. We are delighted with the results and highly recommend their services.

Tommy transformed my garden into a colorful floral display. He designed and implemented it so I could maintain it. He was always prompt and helpful. It's a pleasure to work with him. Thanks Tommy - excellent job!! I highly recommend him.

Pros: Very reliable and pleasant to work with. Great gardening ideas!

I love to garden. But I needed a guide. Tommy has helped me transform my Park Slope garden from a wild, disorganized collection of just about everything to an integrated, visually beautiful and healthy garden. What I like about him most is his willingness to take my ideas and then put his master touch on what I do----based not only his artist's eye, but also also on his vast knowledge and expertise. Yet he is humble and open to suggestions and comments as we work together to figure out a plan. Moreover, he acknowledges what he doesn't know and will go home to research information about a plant or problem we identify. Overall, I find Tommy a pleasure to work with and highly recommend him---whether you are a gardener like me or want him to take on the entire project himself.

Tommy first started working on my extensively planted Terrace in Manhattan more than 12 years ago. He not only turned it into an amazing oasis for me, but it was the envy of the both the building I lived in as well as the surrounding buildings that looked down on my Terrace. I was always proudly amazed when stopped in the Lobby or on the Street by an unknown person who recognized me from my being out on my Terrace- always telling me how amazing my Garden was to look at. When I moved to a Brownstone in Brooklyn I never hesitated to take one of my most valuable assests- my Gardener Tommy!! My Brownstone Garden just like my Terrace quickly became the envy of the neighborhood. To this day 8 years later I have a neighbor that tells me I set the new standard for the block. Truth is Tommy was behind it all. I also have the local Garden Association begging to have my Garden featured on the annual tour. Personable, Highly Talented, and the best Prices in Town.

Tommy transformed my overgrown and dying garden into a beautiful haven. He was most professional, accomodating, highly personable, and reasonably priced. For as long as I have a garden, he will by my gardener. Also, since I've hired him, my climbing rose has exploded into life. Highly recommended!

Tom exceeded my expectations in making my garden everything that I had hoped for and more. In essence, he transformed my small yard into a getaway that is a natural extention of my home. I highly recommend him for anyone who aspires to the highest aesthetic but still wants someone who will give them the personal touch they need. He really listened to what I wanted and delivered with a great artistic eye. \r

A True artist. \r
Thanks again, Tom.

How disappointing! After several phone calls confirming an appointment to meet, and my husband and I rearranging our weekend plans to accommodate their availability, this company didn't show and didn't even have the courtesy to call to say that they couldn't keep the appointment! I had even specifically requested that they call that morning since i was canceling plans to suit their midday availability. When I finally reached a person on the phone they were ""back in Park Slope"" after I was still waiting past the scheduled meeting time and trying to contact their different numbers. I was given some excuses about having taken the wrong number earlier(and what happened now??), and told that the appointment could no longer be done for several days (of course, mid-week when I work). I was totally aggravated and apparently blown off without much thought. In this economy, Not a great way to show you care about customer service.

My experience with Urban Green (Tommy Little and Tony Siniscalchi) has been terrific from the get go -from the initial meeting all the way through the installation it was apparent that this team was different from gardeners that I've dealt with in the past. Their artistry and dedication to detail is unequaled to anything I've seen in the past and their business ethics are stellar to boot. They are truly a rare find and I cannot praise them highly enough.
