Description

Beautifully situated on a sloping, terraced site, Hollister House Garden is an old-fashioned garden in the manner of such famous English gardens as Sissinghurst, Great Dixter and Hidcote, formal in its structure but informal and rather wild in its style of planting. Begun in 1979 by George Schoellkopf, the garden has evolved into a uniquely American synthesis of formal structure and naturalistic planting. The garden unfolds in successive layers of space and color with delightful informal vistas from one section to the next.  Walls and hedges define the “rooms” and create an architectural framework for the romantic abundance of the plantings.
