Duncuttin (Lutherville, Maryland)
The garden started in 1958 from an existing woodland property using material from Henry Hohman's Nursery. Small pieces of sculpture were purchased for the shade garden beginning in the 1960s. In 1970, a tennis court was added; and development of the lawns and borders began. This garden is the result of the marriage of two growers; one an artist, the other a horticulturist. "The collections of trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and sculpture are incorporated into a cohesive work of art."
Persons associated with the garden include: Bruce Baetjer (landscape architect, 1958); Wolfang Oehme (hardscape addition, 1990); Rose Wolford (pond design consultation, 1990); Gary Keim (landscape design consultation, 1995-present); Mary Pat Neff (bed layout consultation, 2000); and sculptors listed in folder.
