Gardening Guru Comes to Canio’s in Sag Harbor

The cover of "Bloom," featuring the gardens of Frederico Azevedo.

In 1993, landscape designer Frederico Azevedo founded Unlimited Earth Care, Inc. in order to create beautiful, sustainable landscapes. For over two decades, Azevedo’s award-winning, curated, and holistic approach to landscape design has been recognized nationally and internationally in both architectural and landscaping publications.

Now, Azevedo has a published a book — “Bloom The Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo” — and on Saturday, November 30, at 5 p.m., he will be at Canio’s Books in Sag Harbor to sign copies of his new book.

Azevedo carries an emphasis on flowers, which he uses to “lure the eye through the flow of the design.” The book explores the hallmarks of an Azevedo garden, featuring his signature curving, floral borders, and his creative integration of native or well-adapted plants. He also often creates multidimensional vistas using layers of flowers, trees, grasses, shrubs, and hedges in her work to dramatic effect.

Azevedo was born in Brazil and studied landscape design in Brazil, England, and the United States. He is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, the American Horticultural Society, and the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons.

Azevedo divides his time between the Hamptons, New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami, and travels abroad frequently.
