Shanti Bithi Nursery began as a landscape design and construction company. Articles about the Rocherolles' work have appeared in The New York Times, Architectural Digest (Germany), Vogue Living (Australia), and many other publications. For 25 years we designed and built the world-renowned 58-acre Steinhardt Gardens (known as Iroki) in Bedford, NY. Please visit our About Us page to read more about this extraordinary garden and see photographs of some of the work we have done there.
