GREENWICH, Conn. -- A rarely-seen Greenwich garden terrace will be open to the public as part of The Garden Conservancy's "Open Days" program on Sept. 22.
Located at 146 Clapboard Ridge Road, the formal terrace and boxwood parterre at the base of this elegant 1930s Georgian Revival house set the stage for a series of magnificent garden experiences.
The eight-acre property includes oak and beech trees, rose and wisteria arbor, a small fruit orchard, fountains, an iris garden planted with more than 10,000 Siberian iris, and, finally, a rustic stone grotto, which is the source of the woodland stream bordering the south edge of the property.
The gardens as enjoyed by visitors today are the result of a close collaboration of over five years between the present owner and Virginia-based landscape architect Charles J. Stick.
The garden will be open on Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Based in Cold Spring, N.Y., the Garden Conservancy has been opening some of America's best private gardens to the public since 1995.
