Dynamism is the word that author and landscape designer Jack DeLashmet uses to characterize the gardens currently thriving in the Hamptons. Grey Gardens, for instance, the once overgrown estate portrayed in the eponymous documentary, is now owned by Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn. Quinn and designer Victoria Fensterer have paid homage to the 1913 design of gray, blue, and white floral palette, but also kept hints of what he calls the earlier era's “romantic tangle.” The plants almost grow into each other and sight lines are blowsy and rich.
