Hillside: A Garden in Newport

I loved everything about my recent trip to Newport but the opportunity to visit private gardens and meet the gardeners themselves was far and away the hit of the trip for me!

Susan Ruf’s garden, Hillside, was no exception.

Her home is a shingle style house built in 1882 and the two and a half acre property is home to more than a dozen 130-year-old trees…

Susan has taken care to replant trees – one hundred and twenty have been added to replace the aging population…
