A Taste of Fall

Ready to begin planning and planting? The greatest rewards are found in marrying easy-to-maintain edible landscapes such as container vegetable gardens, orchards, and grape vines with succulent fall landscapes that are visually compelling. “One of the secrets to creating a meaningful and memorable outdoor space is engaging the user with her natural environment; including edible elements in a finished landscape is a great way of fostering that interaction.

During July and August all over the Hamptons rising from fields, lawns and beachfront properties, glistening white tents made of sailcloth, their canopies artfully draped over high frames soaring to multiple peaks, appear like East End’s greatest thematic sculpture show. As you drive along the hedgerow-laden roads, you spot the majestic tents and envision that each will be the scene of a forthcoming charity or cultural event.

The warm, cheerful pink walls of the closet livened the mood of the home and put a smile on the faces of visitors.
