North Garden

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The North Garden is a living frame through which the mansion, Bosquet, and the view across the Great Lawn to Narragansett Bay are exquisitely framed. Originally a formal parterre with a bowling green along the west wall, the garden is now surrounded on three sides by elegant English-style borders with a serenely balanced color scheme of blue, yellow, pink, white and apricot. In constant bloom from May to frost, the garden is a popular outdoor cathedral for weddings all season long.
