Lawn Rangers - Toxic Free Gardening in the Hamptons

What have Hamptonites got in common with farmers in Panama? The bad news: We’re both destroying our land and its biodiversity. Not to mention lacing our precious environment and ourselves with harmful chemicals. The good news: East Hampton’s celebrated gardener Edwina von Gal is helping both to get out of the dark ages of chemical dependency and show us how to grow our crops and lawns toxin-free.

No longer an underground space relegated merely to wine cellars, media rooms, or staff quarters, many lower levels are as fabulous as the rest of the house. In fact, because of local height restrictions (32 feet in most cases), lower levels have become as important to the Hamptons house as hedgerows and hydrangeas.
