Garden Destinations: Gazebo Garden, Columbia, CT

Perhaps it’s not completely fair to share this as a destination garden as I am not entirely sure you can go here anymore.  Gazebo Gardens was once a locally owned garden center but having shut down a few years ago due (in their words) to ‘being put out of business by Lowes and Home Depot’, their garden is now a private place.   Nonetheless, I have seen reports on the internet that they still occasionally welcome visitors who enjoy a good garden here and there.

At least through the magic of the internet and some arm chair travel, we can all be inspired by some of this former garden center’s great ideas.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
