Garden Dialogues: Deeridge Farms South Tour
Register now for an exclusive TCLF garden tour of Deeridge Farms South, a 250-acre equestrian estate located in Wellington, Florida. The winter residence of Margaret and Jeremy Jacobs incorporates similar characteristics of those enjoyed at their home in East Aurora, New York, where, for half the year, the couple resides on the grounds of an 1920’s designed woodland preserve created by recognized landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. Over the past four decades, the Jacobs have developed the West Palm Beach estate with the goal to implement Olmsted’s design principles for elegantly orchestrated, naturalized landscapes.
Landscape architects Kathy O’Leary Richards and Carlos Somoza will lead the tour of the uninterrupted vistas, woodland trails and the grounds gentle rolling topography. Since 2012, Miami-based landscape architecture firm, O’Leary Richards Design Associates was commissioned to oversee the implementation of a myriad of landscape architecture projects ranging in scale from an intimate Asian inspired courtyard, pastoral greenways, and sinuous jungle paths through native sabal and live oak hammocks.
Lunch will be provided.
