The hanging gardens of Babylon (Long Island)

Went to visit a friend in Babylon Long Island over the weekend. Around the corner from her house, a neighbor had the best use of a chain link fence in a garden we’ve ever seen. The fence was covered in vining vegetables – zucchini, squash and Chinese long beans. I was told the owners run the local Chinese restaurant. It looked awesome from a distance and even better close up.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

  1. I agree, that is very good use of a chain link fence. Granted the plants won't hide the fence year round, but for now it looks pretty fantastic.
