NELDHA Launches Its New Landscape Preservation Network with Tour of The Elms Mansion


A sunken Italian garden. Marble pavilions inspired by Versailles. Sloping lawns and formal parterres. Pathways, terraces, allees. Breathtaking fountains. The classic landscape combination of elegant stone and moving water through a scene of crisply clipped arborvitae and hedges of ivy. A step into the Elms landscape in  Newport, Rhode Island, is much like a step back into classical Italian Renaissance and French Baroque gardens – with just a touch of Victorian sensibilities to keep the scene uniquely American.
