A local New York landscape architect has filed a lawsuit against Domenico Dolce of the Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana for allegedly failing to pay for recent work on a newly installed garden at his Sky Garage penthouse.

According to the suit, Dolce has paid only half of what he owes for the work, leaving north of $75,000 in unpaid bills. Green Roofs, which specializes in environmentally friendly landscaped roof decks and terraces, fashioned the space on the designer’s apartment at 200 Eleventh Avenue.

Dolce picked up two units at developer Young Woo’s condominium tower for a total of $29 million in 2009. Penthouse 4 measures 3,800 square feet, while unit no. 3 measures 3,536 square feet, as The Real Deal previously reported. [NYDN]Julie Strickland
