The Massachusetts Garden

Designed by Susannah Hunter and Catherine MacDonald. Susannah and Catherine have designed a garden that offers an interpretation of this region of Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts Garden

Inspiration has been taken from the Cape Cod landscape, particularly the sand dunes and sandplains associated with the seashore.

The Massachusetts Garden

The planting scheme makes use of native and naturalised plants. Leather appliqué panels depict a coastal scene, and along with bold sweeps of roses and hydrangeas provide a theatrical backdrop to the garden.

The Massachusetts Garden

The contemporary building has been inspired by the artist’s retreats nestled within sand dunes near Provincetown.
