Go green for St. Patrick’s Day! Forget the schtick of green beer and the luck of the Irish, though. Instead, head to Assouline Books & Gifts at South Coast Plaza, to preorder their latest title. Hamptons Gardens is green enough for all the luck you need. Featuring the work of famed landscaper Jack deLashmet and others, the luxury publisher has brought together some of his most amazing work to date.
Inside the book, the Hamptons comes alive, inviting you behind the private hedges and fences and into the landscapes that represent a variety of garden philosophies and styles — featuring the designs of groundbreaking landscapers such as Russell Page, Edwina von Gal, Oehme van Sweden, and Miranda Brooks. From minimalist gardens in Amagansett to the greenery of the famed Grey Gardens, Hamptons Gardens explores a few of the most important gardens of today.
Landscape designer Jack deLashmet has been the garden editor of HAMPTONS magazine, featuring his column “Diary of a Mad Gardener.” His firm, deLashmet & Associates, has completed notable landscape projects and historic garden restorations throughout the United States and Europe.
