General:
After Beatrix Farrand moved from Reef Point, she built an addition for herself onto the home of Lewis and Amy Garland, the longtime caretakers of Reef Point. Farrand selected her favorite plants and architectural elements and transplanted them to Garland Farm. After Farrand's death in 1959, the Garland's took care of the garden until they sold the property in ca. 1969. The front garden was framed with Reef Point fence and incorporated Asian and native plants. The main garden, at the back of the wing, contained elements of Farrand's herbaceous plant collection. This garden consists of rectangular beds with gravel paths between. The central panels are mostly heaths and heathers from Farrand's collection. On January 9, 2004, Garland Farm was purchased by the Beatrix Farrand Society. Their purpose is to repair the house and restore the gardens back to Farrand's design in order to serve as a center for research and activities.
Person(s) associated with the garden include(s): Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Garland (former owners); Amy Garland (former owner, 1964-1970); Ms. Helena and Mr. Jerome C. Goff (former owners, 1970-1993); Robert W. Patterson (architect of back wing (1955-1956); and Beatrix Farrand (landscape architect, 1955-1959).
