Garden Conservancy Open Day in Canaan & Spencertown, Aug 1

The Garden Conservancy invites you to visit two beautiful gardens of Columbia County on view in Canaan and Spencertown on Sunday, August 1.

Rockland Farm – The garden comprises a variety of areas that flow one from another over about ten acres of our property. A 450-foot-long rock ledge runs parallel to the front drive and is topped by a dry garden in silver, gray and blue, with a thyme walk along one edge. Raised areas on the west side of the house feature exotic and tropical plants, many in containers. Behind the house is a sequence of garden rooms: a lavender garden contained within a raised hornbeam hedge; a perennial garden in pastels surrounding our pool; a water garden, fronted by a white garden and with a shade garden and rhododendron walk behind; a hot sundial and rock garden; and a fenced vegetable and cutting garden.

Landscape of Linda B. Horn – The restoration of my landscape has been the goal for fifteen years of living here after a move from Chicago. There are four restored ecosystems: wetlands, waterfall, domestic area of native grasses, and woodland. The last section of restoration was started last fall with eliminating dead trees and then new seeding. This year goldenrod was weed-wacked and new trees planted. The landscape was featured in a five-page article in the September 2017 issue of New York Cottages & Gardens. Native restoration workshops have also been held here through the Columbia Land Conservancy, Spencertown Academy, and Berkshire Botanical Garden.
