Garden Masters: An Urban Oasis in the Sky—Rooftop Gardening at its Finest

Garden Masters: An Urban Oasis in the Sky—Rooftop Gardening at its Finest

Chicago Penthouse Garden

Sat, Jul 13, 2019
3:00 PM- 5:00 PM

Enjoy stunning views of Chicago from an extraordinary garden wrapping around a penthouse home on East Lake Shore Drive. Noted landscape architect Maria Smithburg and Dirk Denison Architects worked with the owners to transform over 4,000 square feet into inviting outdoor dining and sitting areas defined and animated by large trees, shrubs, perennials, seasonal plantings, and the owners’ important sculpture collection. 

Begin with wine and hors d’oeuvres and tour the garden with its owners and Maria Smithburg. Maria will discuss her efforts to balance the desires of her clients, rooftop structural constraints, and needs of the plants to create a landscape that is beautiful and livable, sustainable and hardy, on a harsh but magnificent site high above Lake Michigan.

Advance registration is required and space is limited.
