The Cultural Landscape Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit organization that provides the community with opportunities and the tools to understand the value of landscape architecture, will be holding a series of exclusive tours of private gardens in the Hamptons this summer. The series, Garden Dialogues, will offer intimate group visits to some of today's most beautiful gardens, created by some of the most accomplished designers and landscapes architects.

"Garden Dialogues take place at great gardens and bring together some of the country's most talented landscape architects and their clients for revealing and entertaining discussions about each garden's creation," said Charles A. Birnbaum, President and CEO of The Cultural Landscape Foundation. "That's why it's one of our most popular programs." Garden Dialogues gives ticket holders the chance to hear directly from the designers and their clients about the secrets to creating a great garden.

The first East End Garden Dialogues will take place at a newly constructed Colonial Revival home with an acre of formal gardens in Southampton. The home's close proximity to the ocean and surrounding historic neighborhood are a perfect fit for this traditional architectural design.

The home owners sought out the talents of Sawyer | Berson to design the landscape architecture of the home, along with the interior designs. Their team crafted a sense of continuity between the landscape and the interior spaces of the property. The residence features a series of formal gardens, courts, terraces, a crushed oyster shell paving throughout, a pool with a 'wet' coping, and a variety of formally arranged plantings tolerant to the coastal environment.

Garden Dialogue will run from Saturday, June 18th to Saturday, September 24th. Admission is $100, and light refreshments will be served. Proceeds from the series benefit the educational programs of The Cultural Landscape Foundation.

The Foundation's outreach programs, lectures and published works allow them to broaden the support and understanding for cultural landscapes to protect the priceless heritage of cultural landscapes that we are surrounded by.
