Arnold & Karen Blair: 3-acre Peconic Bayfront property overlooks 17-acre beach and wetland. 27 year-old gardens flow from 80-foot elevation down to sea level via winding paths with landings and overlooks. Massive log gazebo fronts wetland we replanted with indigenous bayberry, high tide bush, and native grasses which put on a late Fall burst of color. Stone walls surround pool tucked into hillside. Rolling lawns, specimen evergreens, antique and salvaged garden ornaments, bay views on the North Fork. Birdhouse Garden: Tim Purtell's garden in Shelter Island Heights mixes trees, shrubs, grasses, perennials to attract and support wildlife. The 15-year-old landscape planted with natives provides color, texture, fragrance from June to October also functions as lab to test plants for deer resistance, drought tolerance.
