Abstract

The 50-year-old Sparhawk Garden in Ogunquit is maintained by the Sparhawk Oceanfront Resort, which acquired the property from the old Barbara Dean restaurant. The 52-inch-wide, 168-foot-long garden marks the entrance to the Marginal Way and overlooks the ocean, making it a textbook seaside garden. Over the past 18 years, Tim Brown, 57, a native of Hallowell and a former schoolteacher, has turned the garden into one of the most spectacular in southern Maine. While in York one summer, he answered an ad to work for Ellen and Blaine Moores and has returned every summer since. Now retired, Brown looks forward to making improvements, rather than having to rush back to teach school in Lewiston.
