Open Days, Public Garden, Preservation Project

Situated around an 18th century farmhouse in the Litchfield Hills of northwest Connecticut, this romantic country garden features exuberant plantings set in rambling formal structure and is noted for its subtle and sometimes surprising color combinations. Reminiscent of such classic English gardens as Great Dixter and Sissinghurst, the garden is divided into a series of rooms which open to vistas over the garden and out onto the natural landscape beyond. The garden has been a preservation project of the Garden Conservancy since 2005.
