The Brine Garden is celebrating its 21st anniversary with an exhibit of photographs and watercolors. ArtEast Open Studio Tour visitors are welcome to enjoy the exhibit and stroll through the 6-acre garden.
With his original digital Canon Rebel, landscape designer Duncan Brine makes images that share the design principles of his garden, “how it works.”
Duncan’s wife, Julia Brine, his partner in their landscape design firm, Horticultural Design, Inc., depicts botanical and natural subjects in watercolor and pencil.

The Brine Design:
Landscape and Garden Principles in Practice
Join an on-site seminar at landscape designer Duncan Brine’s own six-acre garden. The Brine Garden – now in its 21st year – resembles a public garden, with multiple areas, each with its own character.
America’s first native plant group, The New England Wild Flower Society of Framingham, Massachusetts is to visit the Brine Garden this fall.
Native plants from Horticultural Design’s nursery help the Brine Garden blend with adjacent naturalistic areas and preserved lands. Anne Raver of The New York Times recently described the garden as a “dream-like landscape.” Author Ruah Donnelly describes The Brine Garden as “a naturalistic display garden of remarkable artistry and diversity.” Prolific garden book author, Tovah Martin, writes that at the Brine Garden, “elements of concealment and surprise are written into the landscape.” This roaming seminar will include a discussion of Duncan Brine’s landscape design process, and respond to your observations and questions.
Leader: Duncan Brine is the Principal of Horticultural Design, Inc., Pawling, NY, as well as an instructor for the New York Botanical Garden.
