    Garden#1 Boas’ Garden, 299 Landing Drive, Brewster
    Welcome to Overledge overlooking Long Pond in Brewster.  This property features 100+ hydrangeas, including species arborescens, paniculata, quercifolia, anomala ssp. Petiolaris, and macrophylla.  Vegetables, fruits and herbs are planted in terraces on one side of the property in full sun.  A shade garden features hosta, ferns, sweet woodruff, and brunnera.   A steep bank leading down to the pond has been stabilized with native grasses and Carolina roses; and now gradually, New York asters, goldenrod, liatris, ironweed, and swamp milkweed are being introduced.  Mixed herbaceous as well as perennial and annual plantings ring the front yard and include mature hollies, rhododendron, viburnum, Kousa dogwood, Japanese maple, weigela, and spirea.  On July 13, Linda Coven, owner of Strictly Hydrangeas, who assists in the maintenance of this garden, will speak throughout the day on choosing the right hydrangeas for your garden.

    Garden Directions:  From Route 137 (Long Pond Road) in Brewster, turn onto Greenland Pond Road.  When Greenland Pond Road dead ends into Landing Drive, take a left on Landing Drive.  299 Landing Drive is the last house on the left.  (GPS directions for this garden are correct.) Ample parking at the bottom of the driveway. Garden Handicap Accessibility is difficult—steep driveway and stairs to vegetable garden terraces.

    Garden #2 Chapman’s Garden, 28 Sady’s Lane, East Falmouth
    Surprising vistas and vignettes unfold to visitors strolling the winding garden paths.  A stone patio walled by espaliered pear trees and dogwood, archways of beech trees and hydrangea, and a small pond are some of the features of the thirty-five-year-old garden. Returning visitors will discover new plantings of perennials and shrubs and even a new garden accent.  The summer garden includes collections of daylilies, hostas, and hydrangeas.  Annuals, tropical plants, and container plants accent the garden borders. Despite their Garden’s age, the Chapman’s are keen on continuing improvements making this garden well worth a return visit. The site has plenty of immediate parking.
    Open for Tours: Saturday, July 10 & Wednesday, July 14
