United States of America, Connecticut, Fairfield County, Greenwich
Toad Hall (Greenwich, Connecticut)
This two-acre garden is surrounded by woods and is backed by a 400-acre Boy Scout reservation. Planting has been dictated by invading deer and the sunny location. The owners' efforts have been to connect their garden and the well-designed pool to the surroundings by using grasses and navitve shrubs and trees for interesting year-round vistas from inside the house. An attractively planted courtyard is centered on a fountain and curved sitting wall. This provides a garden space that is deer-proof.
Persons associated with the property include: Magnus Lindholm (former owner, 1981-1985); Pamela S. and Richard Niner (former owners, 1985-1999); and William Rutherford, Jr. (landscape architect, 1987-1996).
