Garden Conservancy Open
Submitted By Bob Gillmore, Regional Representative,
The Garden Conservancy
Members of the public will have a rare
opportunity to view one of the largest private residential gardens
in central New Hampshire—more than an acre of annuals, perennials,
shrubs and trees—Saturday and Sunday, July 22 and 23.
The garden, on Wing Road
in Epsom, is part of the Open Days Program of the Garden
Conservancy, the national non-profit organization that organizes the
opening of several hundred of the nation’s exceptional private
gardens every year.
The Epsom garden is one of
three Merrimack Valley landscapes on this year’s program.
garden includes vast beds of flowering plants surrounding two
carefully restored 18th-century farm buildings: a large
center-chimney colonial house and a 35-by-56-foot barn built in
The largest planting bed, along the front of the house, is
134 feet long and four feet wide. Another bed is 75 feet long
and 20 feet across at its widest point.
The plantings are so
large and lush that they “embower” the buildings, according to Dr.
Kyle Landt, a retired pediatric endocrinologist who bought the
property in 1988 and spent the last 29 years creating the gardens.
Landt also made a pond, which is now home to 16 koi. The
15-by-35-foot pond is fed by a waterfall, which flows out of a
two-by-four-foot stone horse trough.
Landt’s garden also boasts
the largest horsechestnut tree (Aesculus hippocastanum) in Merrimack
County. The approximately-150-year-old tree is more than 65
feet high and its crown more than 56 feet wide.
The two other
Merrimack Valley gardens in this year’s Open Days program are
Evergreen, Robert Gillmore’s one-acre woodland garden in Goffstown,
which includes more than 400 rhododendrons; and Danielle Durocher’s
garden in Windham. Durocher’s suburban home is surrounded by
perennial beds, specimen evergreens and flowering shrubs; her garden
includes a multi-level pond and extensive stone work.
gardens will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p. m.
each garden is $7 per person, which supports Conservancy activities.
Besides the Open Days Program, the Conservancy restores and
preserves outstanding private gardens across the country, which are
then open to the public, usually as non-profit organizations.
One of its early projects was the Fells, on Lake Sunapee, in
Newbury. It was once the summer estate of John Hay, secretary
of state under two presidents, William McKinley and Theodore
