Earlier this summer, I had the chance to visit the Madoo Conservancy in Sagaponack. Madoo is the two-acre garden of artist, writer and gardener Robert Dash. I am so happy to have discovered this wonderful secret garden. Tucked off a Hamptons lane, I had driven by the entrance dozens of times over the years with no idea that it was even there!
Filled with sculptures and other whimsical objects, there's a sense of playfulness to the space. Meanwhile, manicured trees and hedges co-mingle with wilder elements for a bohemian vibe. I'd love to meet the man who dreamed up this lovely place.
The garden will close on September 15th for the summer, but it opens back up in May. If you find yourself out in the Hamptons and you love gardens, Madoo is a must-do.
