Defining Garden Spaces

Surveying your yard you realize your landscaping is looking a little sad. Don’t despair.

Warming Trends

Thanks to the warmth provided by a Rumford fireplace, life outdoors starts earlier in the year and lingers all the way into autumn. With wiring and Ethernet connection cleverly concealed in the stone pillars, the space serves as both office and media room. This ingenious idea gets everyone outside.

John Jay's Green Thumb

The glory of the John Jay Homestead grounds and gardens where the public is free to roam is like stepping back in the 19th century.

Hans Williams and Steve Metzker had recently started a company called Apple Ridge Farms, with the idea of raising free-range, grass-fed cattle without hormones or steroids. They chose Herefords, which produce fine cuts of beef. The duo have kept themselves busy revitalizing the pastures.

Farmer in the Deli

John Ubaldo is the owner of John Boy’s Farm and Pound Ridge's and sells everything from fresh eggs to Berkshire pork to smoked duck. His goal is to provide clean, locally grown food to people who appreciate the effort involved.

House Under Siege

The vines and tangle of wild roots wrap your foundation, your porches, and your horticultural gems to the point of near demise. A primer on fighting back- and winning. Plus some advice on going organic in the garden.

Bush Hill Gardens, created by Barbara and Charlie Robinson, is an outdoor oasis nestled closely to the family's 1750s farmhouse. Woodland arches, serpentine walkways and stone fountains give the garden a whimsical feel. The Robinsons take pride their garden, filled with distinct flowers and an assortment of vegetables.

Get Down, Naturally

The Northeastern Organic Farm Association (NOFA) of Connecticut will hold its 28th annual winter conference in partnership with Manchester Community College’s “Team Green.” NOFA has been promoting local organic agriculture through both education and advocacy.
