Landscape Design Students & Alumni Series: Christopher LaGuardia

Tuesday, March 21, 2023

1 – 2 p.m. | At the Garden

Contemporary Gardens of the Hamptons

Water is a crucial design factor in Christopher LaGuardia‘s elegant landscapes-both its serene beauty and its surging power. Dotted with wetlands and encircled by waterfront, the Hamptons are impacted by reduced water quality, erosion, and colonies of invasive species. LaGuardia discusses the challenges of developing waterfront properties while also looking to protect and enhance the natural environment, including creative ways to capture runoff, create habitats for wildlife, and choose the best mix of grasses, perennials, and woody shrubs for a given site.


We offer Continuing Education credits (CEUS) for LA CES and APLD for successful completion of this lecture.
