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.

The gardens are as lush as can be and just need to be coaxed along until frost or until we’re ready to start moving plants around (musical perennials) and preparing for winter. It has been so dry lately that the weeds have slowed down slightly, so we’re […]
