Sagaponack, New York
In conjunction with Madoo's 25th anniversary as a public garden, LaGuardia Design Group worked closely with Madoo's Director, Alejandro Saralegui to prepare a cultural Landscape Report. The goal of LaGuardia's work was to provide formal documentation of the physical attributes of the garden, giving particular attention to the documentation of the unique and specimen quality plant material that characterizes the garden. Due to the ephemeral nature of plants, the inventory serves as an important resource and road map for the organization. The inventory can help inform future improvements and upkeep to the garden as well as maintaining Robert Dash's creative vision for future generations.
"The Madoo Conservancy is dedicated to the study, preservation, and enhancement of Madoo, the ever-changing, horticulturally diverse garden with historic structures established in 1967 by artist, gardener, and writer Robert Dash in the village of Sagaponack, New York. At Madoo, a unique living tribute to the artistic imagination of its founder, we see to continually engage, educate, and inspire our visitors within this ever-chamging entirely organic environment."
