Every home needs a little greenery, but hosting vegetation in a small space has its problems: limited natural light, leaky pots, and the Phish-blasting dude two doors down who keeps asking if your name is Holden. Turning townhomes into terrariums, Urban Jungle.
A brick-walled eco-lit garden center focused on small urban indoor and outdoor spaces, just-opened UJ is the product of the owner's childhood on a CA vineyard and his mechanical engineering instruction at West Point, where coursework presumably included tactical seeding and Clausewitzian pruning theories. The fun starts with a floor full of ceramic, metal, wood, and plastic planting fixtures including window boxes, floor-based self-sustaining "water gardens" for plants and fish, as well as durable sedums and salvia plants suitable for areas with little light, and a variety of ferns that can survive with next to none, which is perfect, cause Common is played out anyway. For those with no floorspace to spare, there're vertical gardening solutions (e.g. hanging canvas bags or metal trays fitted with tiny irrigation systems hanging from the wall), and rooftop setups, where greenery's planted on top of a waterproof, rot-preventing "moisture barrier", giving you a green space even if you don't have an actual lawn, though if a frisbee leaves the yard, it's recommended you don't hop the fence to go get it.
If all that seems a bit daunting, a team of potentially tatted vegetation experts'll get you pointed in the right direction, with install services also readily available, perfect if handling "Heavy Things" just isn't for you.
