In the Garden
“a dreamlike landscape”
Vistas and Close-ups, Staged by a Filmmaker
by Anne Raver
Duncan Brine is a Landscape Designer with a Filmmaker’s Eye
IT had been raining all day, so mist covered the trees and shrubs as we set out for a walk through Duncan and Julia Brine’s six-acre garden, a dreamlike landscape that takes its cues from the old shade trees and fence posts remaining from the farm that was once here, as well as the native plants, like black locust and joe-pye weed, that populate the hills and spring-fed marsh.
Gardens of the Hudson Valley
“The line between art and nature has never
seemed so blurred as it is in the Brine Garden.”
From the chapter on GardenLarge’s Brine Garden in
the new book, Gardens of the Hudson Valley, Monacalli Press.
