Baldwin Hill Gardens was established in 2005 by Win Knowlton, offering full-service, year-round garden design, installation, and maintenance for all types of gardens in New York City and the metropolitan area. BHG specializes in a broad spectrum of flowering plants from bulbs, perennials, and annuals to shrubs and trees - for full sun to deep shade. Working with different architects, BHG’s emphasis is always on a richly planted diverse garden with something flowering or of interest at any and all times of the year.
