LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton is holding its annual Landscape Awards on Saturday, this year honoring landscape architects Oehme, van Sweden & Associates during a luncheon in the gardens.
I admire the architects' “New American Garden” style, and my own garden encompasses a lot of the New American feel, if only accidentally, because I prefer the natural look of free-growing plants and trees that the style dictates.
The awards luncheon, which will run from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, will make Oehme, van Sweden & Associates members of the renowned group of LongHouse Landscape Award recipients that includes landscape architect Dan Kiley, Belgium’s celebrated horticultural firm Wirtz International, American gardener and horticulturist Frank Cabot, and the founder of the Central Park Conservancy, Betsy Barlow Rogers.
LongHouse Reserve is at 133 Hands Creek Road, East Hampton. Tickets are $100 for members, $150, $250 and $500. Visit the LongHouse Reserve website for details.
