Brazilian-born landscaper Ricardo Oliveira skims the pool at a home on Flagler Street. "Everywhere you look in Greenwich you see landscape gardeners," says photographer Catherine Karnow. "The grass is the most beautiful I have seen anywhere." This estate's monthly landscaping bill rings up at around $2,000—and that doesn't include mowing the lawn.
