    Gardener Kyla Dippong specializes in sculpting naturalistic perennial gardens, an art she developed over her career as a professional gardener at institutions across New York City such as The Battery Conservancy, Brooklyn Botanic Garden and The High Line. In 2019 Kyla returned to Wave Hill, where she was a John Nally Intern in 1996. At Wave Hill she gardens in the Shade Border, balancing the aesthetics of native and exotic species growing in a linear space.
