Open to landscape architecture professionals, allied designers, and the general public.
This exclusive Garden Dialogue is divided into two parts. The first tour is of three properties that have been combined into one exquisite, private estate. Mario Nievera, of Nievera Williams Design, will guide guests through the estate which features a lake-front-facing main residence surrounded by tropical plants, terraces with fire elements designed by Nievera Williams Design, and an outstanding view to the intracoastal waterway. A short walk to the east is a guest house and swimming-pool garden, with a secret courtyard and a pergola-covered terrace overlooking the pool. The last stop is an another intimate guest house surrounded by charming gardens and walkways leading to a private, brick-terraced swimming pool.
The tour continues nearby at the historic Royal Poinciana Plaza shopping center, where Keith Williams, of Nievera Williams Design, will guide the group through the site and explain the extensive and meticulous changes to the design that went into the renovation of this incredible property. The plaza has won several awards and is an example of how landscape architecture has contributed to the successful adaptive reuse and resuscitation of what was once described as a dying retail plaza.
The event includes a lovely boxed lunch under the palm trees following the tour.
