Landscape Tyranny

At the Bridgehampton Community House

    Suzanne Ruggles, a naturalist, native plant specialist, and author, will give an illustrated talk on “The Tyranny of Landscaping” Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Bridgehampton Community House, as part of the Horticultural Society of the Hamptons’ lecture series.

    Known professionally as the Barefoot Gardener, Ms. Ruggles, who lives in Westhampton, promotes the creation of naturally balanced landscapes using native plants, and cautions homeowners about the environmental harm caused by lawns that require nonnative grasses and the use of chemicals.

    Tickets are $10, free for members.
