ames Golden has developed a loyal blog following at A View from Federal Twist for his thoughts about garden design and his online journal of his large “New American” garden in the country. James isn’t a professional designer, however; he is a passionate and knowledgeable home gardener with a great eye for design. In the fall of 2011, he began writing about a second, much smaller, urban garden he was planning at his house in Brooklyn. What he designed, and ultimately built, is the antithesis of his naturalistic one-acre garden at Federal Twist, but it is also a companion piece. Both Photography by James Golden LEAF MAGAZINE
