A Taste of Fall

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. Blueberry bushes, pumpkin patches, kale beds, and crabapples bring color and diversity to the seasonal garden palette while also offering scrumptious treats at the dinner table! Edible landscapes provide an easy opportunity of connecting with nature that is regenerative and nurturing for both our minds and bodies,” said Jonathan Tan, Associate Designer, at the LaurelRock Company.

The 2014 Hampton Classic Horse Show

Horses and riders in the ring aren't the only competitors on closing day of the Hampton Classic. Every year, innovative decorators play off equestrian themes, beach topics, end-of-summer flowers, business logos, bright bursts of color, to create table settings for their guests in the ringside VIP tent. The Editor in Chief of HC&G (Hamptons Cottages & Gardens), Kendell Cronstrom, selects the winning tables each year. Choosing among the myriad creations isn't easy but here is the outcome this year.

Under the White Tents: A Wrap-Up of Summer Chairty Events in the Hamptons

Under the White Tents: A Wrap-Up of Summer Chairty Events in the Hamptons

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.
