Redding, CT

Nestled in the pastoral countryside of Redding, CT, surrounded by 300 protected acres of rock ledges, dense forest, grasslands, and meandering streams, InSitu is a 24-acre sculpture garden where nature and art dramatically intersect. Owner Michael Marocco, actively involved with the skillful team of designers, craftsmen, and plantsmen, has created a richly composed showcase of architecture, horticulture, and sculpture, harmoniously woven together in a series of 27 garden rooms. The stone, cedar, oak, and rich palette of deep reds and browns integrate InSitu's houses and outbuildings seamlessly into the landscape. The sequence of distinctive garden rooms artfully incorporates native meadows, deciduous trees, flowering plants, grasses, arbors, water features, berms, and terraces, all elegantly connected by lawn, stone, and woodland pathways. Marocco's internationally curated sculpture collection flourishes in concordance with these masterfully styled spaces. Two unique structures-The Sanctuary, a striking stone, chapel-like space emerging from the side of a hill, and Pulpitum, a sculptural observation tower-offer sweeping vistas of the inspiring oasis. The gardens at InSitu were designed in collaboration with Richard Hartlage. They were installed and are meticulously cared for by John and Andrew Kuczo. InSitu has been featured in numerous publications, including the National Garden Conservancy's book Outstanding American Gardens: A Celebration: 25 Years of the Garden Conservancy (2015), a portrait of 50 of America's most beautiful gardens.
