No matter where you live right now, outdoor space is precious. And if you live in a city like New York, it’s an easy assumption that whatever kind of “yard” or fresh-air space you have, you’re doing your best to maximize time spent there. For the exterior design and high-end landscaping firm Manscapers, outdoor space has always been incredibly important. The team believes that when we’re able to utilize what we have in the smartest ways possible, our happiness increases.
So when we got the chance to talk to the three best friends and business partners who make up the Manscapers team—Mel Brasier, Garrett Magee, and James DeSantis—it was the perfect opportunity to dig in to what takes an outdoor space to the next level. Plus, the team recently premiered the second season of its series, Backyard Envy, which showcases outdoor beautification projects, from a Japanese garden for an ultramodern home to a Tuscan-themed backyard in the middle of New Jersey.
Check out Mel’s and James’s own outdoor spaces and let them inspire your own backyard oasis.
