Ladew Topiary Gardens, Maryland

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.
