Garden structure/sculpture, Organic/toxin-free, Meadow, Water feature, Fruit/vegetables, Substantial native plants, Woodland/shade garden
This modestly sized, organically maintained garden won the 2007 Golden Trowel award from Garden Design magazine. It features a cottage garden of bulbs and perennials, a Belgian fence espalier of fruit trees, a grape arbor, an herb garden, a checkerboard garden, and a "meadow" with naturalized bulbs, native plants, a Domenico Belli sculpture, and a greenhouse. There are many European touches, like rose arbors, window boxes, a fountain, and Anduze pots. There is also a terrace with a wisteria-covered pergola for outdoor dining. A vertical garden of mostly ferns and heuchera, inspired by Patrick Blanc, was installed five springs ago. It has been a steep learning curve and we are still learning! This wall has become quite the attraction. Modest in size, our garden is rich in detail and has a great deal of visual appeal. This garden was featured in the 2010 "Best of" issue of Westchester Home magazine, and hosted a well received "Wilding Walls, Fruiting Fences" Digging Deeper in 2021. Garden is partially accessible.
