West Cornwall, CT
Open Days, Edibles, Water feature, Container gardens
An idiosyncratic garden surrounding an 1827 house that has evolved gradually over the past fifteen years and is bordered by traditional stone walls. Its main features are a narrow water rill enclosed by hornbeam hedging; two long beds, planted for drama and height with perennials, grasses, and annuals; a kitchen/picking garden created in the recessed space between two outbuildings; a terrace filled with container plants opening onto a boxwood gravel parterre; a formal arrangement of weeping cherry trees; and a bird house village that floats above a glade of giant Petasites.
Directions: From Route 7 take Route 128 through West Cornwall. Continue up hill and turn left onto Cream Hill Road. At first crossroads, turn right onto Cogswell Road. House is last one on the left, immediately before the Church.
