Another LWLA project is to featured this summer in The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s award-winning Garden Dialogues series. This marks the third year LWLA has participated in the popular series.

Led by Larry Weaner and the property owner, the tour will visit a twelve-acre estate in North Salem, New York. LWLA’s designs for the estate married the owner’s deep appreciation for nature with a formal aesthetic in keeping with the home’s architectural legacy. The gardens around the stately Edwardian house, which offers garden views from every room, feature formally arrayed native plants that lead to a wilder landscape beyond, including the seeded meadow where native wildflowers, grasses, birds, and butterflies march to their own tune. Stylized groupings of native woodland vegetation along the entry drive further express the estate’s connection to place.

Register for the event (scheduled for Saturday, September 5, 2014) at The Cultural Landscape Foundation website.
