Wethersfield Garden is a 3-acre formal garden created mainly in the Classical Italian style. Mr. Stillman's inspiration was the garden of the Italian Renaissance with its use of water, sculpture, topiary, and terraces.
Throughout the Garden are sculptures created by deMarco, Watts, Flannagan, and Stachura. The Garden blends these formal elements with those found in the native landscape and were designed for enjoyment in all seasons.
Architectural features such as a terrace, or statues and urns work as visual nodes; flowers play a role accenting and provide contrast for these focal points, as well as exotic trees, such as orange and gardenia. The Arborvitae Allée with a Naiad Fountain, the Peacock Walk, and the Belvedere are some of the Garden’s most stunning features.
The attention to detail in the context of the grand traditional design makes evident the many years of improvement Mr. Stillman and his landscape architects dedicated to the Garden.
