Digging Deeper: Rocks, Ponds, Waterfalls, and Exotic Trees—A Strolling Garden to Soothe and Stimulate

Digging Deeper: Rocks, Ponds, Waterfalls, and Exotic Trees—A Strolling Garden to Soothe and Stimulate

Sat, Jul 14, 2018
2:00 PM

Spend an afternoon strolling through a park-like landscape of intimate, naturalistic gardens, contoured vistas, and whimsical surprises created over the past twenty years. Garden owners, Marlene Marko and Loren Skeist, will describe their efforts to create a beguiling, all-season refuge. Along with gardeners Dan and Laura Reilly, and water expert Ed Drohan, Marlene and Loren will share how their fascination with individual garden elements—especially trees and rocks—expanded to include shrubs and flowers, ponds, woodland, shade and water gardens, and ultimately, the relationships and flow between gardens. They hope to share their joy in discovering beauty in so many unexpected places and of starting gardens which then continue to surprise and challenge as they mature. Practicing medicine and raising three children in Manhattan, Marlene and Loren bought a small weekend cottage on two-thirds of an acre in Bridgehampton in 1996. Two years later they acquired an adjacent six-acre potato field and began to recruit a team of creative and passionate garden specialists to help them imagine and realize outdoor spaces that were interesting and fun. Each year, one or two gardens or other features were added, not as part of a predetermined cohesive vision, but as a new element, often to create just the right place for an extraordinary rock or a newly discovered rare plant or tree. The result is a garden that is best experienced not by just looking, but by taking the time—strolling, sitting, touching, listening—to feel a part of it.
