|Bringing Back Holleywood
Landscaping at this point is landclearing. Brush is removed not only because it's unsightly, but because it is choking and stunting trees. Like lilacs and a lovely fruit-bearing pear tree we discovered buried inside a clump. The brush is burned, creating (permitted) fires so dramatic that an artist stopped by for permission to paint them.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten. The info on this site is earnestly cobbled from a variety of sources, including the web. Please let us know if we've gotten something wrong, or if there's a story about Holleywood you'd like to share.
