The overdue removal of several mature trees has provided an opportunity to reimagine the plantings and landscaping for the next generation — and we would love your help!   

Our current beautification project includes replanting the North side of the main house following the removal of the large (1 1/2 times height of the house!) Holly trees, planting the East side of the house following the removal of "Big Ben," a dangerously big evergreen which threatened the house, planting the back of the barn to obscure the electric box, propane tank and AC units, and MORE!  We are choosing non-invasive plants, many of which are already represented in the Mather Homestead gardens as planted by Bertha Mather.  

Fine print!  We reserve the right to use funds for alternate plants as necessary.
