The Garden at Hammond-Harwood House
The garden at Hammond-Harwood House provides a lovely respite, hidden in back and enclosed by a brick wall, a set of tall magnolia trees, and boxwood hedges. This current garden is in the colonial revival style and dates from the 1950s. Some plantings, such as the large boxwood in the center back, date from the early 1800s. The area is maintained by volunteers and has been certified as “Baywise” for its plantings and care.
The original property extended over four acres and likely held outbuildings such as a stable, spring house, and privy, as well as an orchard, kitchen garden, and herb garden.
