HAH Members and Their Guests Have the Special Opportunity to Tour Several Private Gardens In Southampton
The first garden on this tour will be that of
Originally begun 20 years ago with Jeffrey Glick, this garden is full of established as well as new wonders. The first feature as one enters this property is the full-sun, deer-resistant garden to the right. A turn left along a path takes you to the first water feature: a koi pond and waterfall replete with wildlife. Continuing along the winding path through a gate and fence, Greg is creating a new woodland garden mix of native and non-native trees, shrubs, and perennials, following the removal of the lawn as well as 80 dead Eastern Red Cedars. Included are 40 different varieties of Japanese maples, each labelled so visitors may take note. Recently, an extensive second water feature has been added with a waterfall, pond, surrounding patio, and seating areas.
A third water feature is the swimming pool with separate water fountains and a patio that is home to a large collection of container plantings, many of which are stored during the winter in the home’s basement greenhouse. Visitors are in for a real treat exploring Greg’s wonderful garden.
Check in at first garden before 11:00 am. Directions to the several additional gardens on the tour will be given at the sign-in table. Guests of Individual and Family/Dual Memberships will be charged $10 per person. Guests must be accompanied by members.
