Urban Oasis


Awarded 2nd place, “Residential Design/Build”
2001 RI Monthly/RI Nursery and Landscape Assoc.

“In Providence, Rhode Island, Michael Veracka’s yard of raised, geometrically patterened beds gives new meaning to the term conspicuous consumption: His garden comfortably feeds him and his wife, Priscilla Young. In his cozy, working class neighborhood of conservative front lawns and foundation planting, it takes guts to turn an entire corner lot, visible to all, into a small farm. So far, he’s heard nothing but applause.”
