The Landscape Pleasures Symposium, Garden Tours, and Cocktail party are now sold-out. Thank you for your support! Updated June 5, 2014 


Spring is finally in the air! As we leap into gardening season, the Landscape Pleasures co-chairs, Lillian Cohen, Jack deLashmet, Linda Hackett Munson, and Martha McLanahan, invite you to join them for the annual Landscape Pleasures program to be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 7 and 8. 

It is our honor to hold this year’s event in memory of the internationally renowned artist, author, and avid landscape designer Robert Dash. His innovative two-acre Sagaponack garden, Madoo, will be open to Landscape Pleasures attendees on Sunday’s tour.

The weekend’s activities begin on Saturday morning with a symposium featuring three diverse and remarkable speakers: leading British garden designer, Arne Maynard; prominent American architecture critic, Martin Filler; and fascinating southern landscape architect, Chip Callaway. Sunday’s self-guided garden tour promises a visit to some of the best Hamptons properties including the Southampton Village estates of Tory Burch, Joan and Bernard Carl, Perri Peltz and Eric Ruttenberg, and Margaret and R. Peter Sullivan

On Saturday evening, June 7, ticket purchasers at the Sponsor level and above ($350+) will have the once-in-a-lifetime invitation for cocktails at The Moraine, the breathtaking Water Mill garden and home of Ala and Ralph Isham. One of the few private estates designed by Dash—a close friend of the family—it is the perfect blending of architecture and location and American and European influences. Featuring formal, cutting, and woodland gardens as well as expansive vistas and trails, this is one of the most exceptional private gardens on the East End. It is not to be missed.
