Rock Ridge: Reinventing a Historic Estate for a Modern Day Family

Times have changed since the initial inception of the gardens at the historic estate of Rock Ridge in Tuxedo Park, New York. Once featured in a 1908 American Homes and Gardens article as a stunning example of the Victorian style of gardening, the grounds endured decades of neglect.

See how the grounds were transformed for a modern day family. Native and reclaimed materials were used to create new structures and garden spaces. A vast palette of plantings highlights the innate beauty of the site and creates a multi-seasonal feast for the senses.

Andrea Buckingham, the landscape architect on this project, gives us an insider’s guide to this beautiful and historic estate. Following Andrea’s talk, please join us for refreshments.
