Architectural Digest Highlights Bridge View

Plane trees thrive on the East End of Long Island, so Melissa Reavis, partner in the New York City office of Hollander Design Landscape Architects, and her team planted them along with Limelight hydrangeas and such native species as Joe Pye weed, Monarda, and Solidago to heighten the centerpiece pool at a family’s weekend hideaway in Sagaponack. To connect it to the surrounding environs, the pool, which “brings so much life into this space with its ability to reflect light, architecture, and the changing sky in its mirror finish,” says Reavis, was aligned with the adjacent pond, extending views beyond the neighbor’s hedge and “making it feel much more expansive—it isn’t immediately clear where this property ends and the rest of the landscape begins.”
