An article on legendary landscape architect Beatrix Farrand of Bar Harbor and Ne
An article on legendary landscape architect Beatrix Farrand of Bar Harbor and New York and on one of her last existing gardens, at Garland Farm in Salisbury Cove on Mount Desert Island. When she failed to interest the town of Bar Harbor or the University of Maine in taking over her collection of plants and papers when she was in her eighties, she had her estate at Reef Point demolished and the garden dismantled. In 1954, she moved in with her longtime employees, Lewis and Amy Garland, built an addition to their house and designed her only year-round garden there, incorporating plants and features from her estate. This past January, the Beatrix Farrand Society purchased the farm and will create a horticultural study center there. Patrick Chasse, head of the society, has long researched and restored Farrand gardens.
