June 23, 10am-12pm: Garden Dialogue
led by Potomac Chapter member, Sandy Clinton, FASLA
In honor of The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s 20th anniversary, Garden Dialogues 2018 will focus on 20 projects designed by talented and visionary landscape architects on TCLF’s Board of Directors and Stewardship Council.
This large suburban garden located in the residential neighborhood of Bannockburn is an oasis for owners Gail and Ben Jacobs. Having purchased two side-by-side parcels over 40 years ago, they have spent decades refining, expanding, and modifying the landscape of their collective three-acre property. Over the years, the garden has been designed by a number of noted landscape architects including Lester Collins, Oehme van Sweden, and Clinton & Associates.
2.0 LA CES approved.
