Landscape Pleasures is now sold-out. Thank you for your support! 

The weekend’s activities begin on Saturday morning with a symposium featuring three remarkable speakers: London-based garden designer and “Best in Show” winner of the 2014 Chelsea Flower Show, Luciano Giubbilei; acclaimed lecturer, garden designer, photographer, and principal of Native Landscape Design and Restoration, Cole Burrell; and Janice Parker, owner of her award-winning firm Janice Parker Landscape Architects, known for its reputation of thoughtful and unique landscapes. We are delighted to also feature Edwina von Gal to speak about Perfect Earth Project.

Sunday’s self-guided garden tour will focus on a selection of five inspiring properties in Wainscott and East Hampton, including the gardens of Jane and Michael DeFlorio, Eleanora and Michael Kennedy, David Kleinberg, Toni Ross, and Robin and Fred Seegal. 

On Saturday evening, June 13, ticket purchasers at the Sponsor level and above will be invited for cocktails at the breathtaking Southampton garden and home of Marcia Riklis. This classic windswept oceanfront estate has fantastic sunset views over Shinnecock Bay. Designed by Edwina von Gal with Abby Clough Lawless of Farm Design, the property offers a variety of seating areas, gardens and paths that take advantage of grade changes and the micro climates they afford.
