Nestled north of Towson, Maryland, in bucolic Monkton, Md., is the fabulous spread of gardens know as Ladew Topiary Gardens. Designed with garden rooms portraying themes, it was very forward- thinking for its day. Each room creates a vista from several angles: some from the home, and some from other gardens. It is a work of art. The owner loved the fox hunt and there is an especially skillful topiary of a horse jumping a fence, with topiary beagles and a rider.
