United States of America, Connecticut, Litchfield County, Washington
Meadow Wind (Washington Depot, Connecticut)
This garden is based on the colonial tradition of mixing herbs and perennials and annuals and is laid out in a parterre syle , enclosed in a low stone wall broken by a picket fencealong one side. Garden designer Rudy Favetti helped with the design. An inner circle is planted with culinary herbs. The inner quadrants are planted with vegetables; and the outer quadrants are planted with perennials and annuals. A large birdhouse on a tall pole stands in the middle of the inner circle. A dovecote and arbor seat covered with grapevines are buit at each end of the enclosure.
