Garden ornaments decorate the landscapes
June 12, 2010
It’s that time of year for staff on the conservation and property care teams to bring out all the beautiful and somewhat delicate garden ornaments, chairs and benches for visitors' enjoyment. Ranging in composition- marble, limestone, terra cotta, ceramic and cast iron- these ornaments are historic objects and require protection and proper storage in the off-season. Outdoor sculptures and decorative arts complement the beautiful gardens at many properties, particularly Hamilton House, Codman Estate and Beauport.
