A Garden for All Seasons

A Garden for All Seasons captures Marjorie Post’s garden landscape, set on twenty-five acres in Washington, D.C. Working with prominent landscape architects Umberto Innocenti, Richard Webel, and Perry Wheeler, Post envisioned a setting with a diverse and fascinating array of trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, offering something to see in every season.

Thirteen acres of formal gardens extend from the house’s terraces and porches in a progression of outdoor rooms. Each of these spaces, meant to complement the mansion’s interior rooms, encourages an intuitive flow from the French parterre to the rose garden, onto the Friendship Walk and the vast Lunar Lawn, location of many of Post’s legendary entertainments. Readers will find inspiration in the newly commissioned photography, while historic images bring context to the beautiful landscape. Although she was in residence at Hillwood only in the spring and fall, Post designed the gardens to flower in all seasons. Today, they are even more glorious all year round for the myriad visitors to the property.
