About our Landscape
The award winning landscape design of Rolling Ridge was done by renowned landscape architect Fletcher Steele. He began his work in 1915, creating a winding drive through native hemlocks and over rolling hills. Open Vistas gave guests several views of Lake Cochichewick. The dominating piece was a long bowling green, flanked vibrant by rhododendrons, leading to a 25 foot circular pool that overflowed into 3 cascading fountains.
