Formal Garden Walls Restoration Project
Distressed garden walls needs your help!
The formal gardens at Maudslay, designed and installed in 1912 by Martha Brookes Hutcheson, one of America’s first female professional landscape designers, are surrounded and protected by a brick wall. This wall has served its purpose well for over 100 years, but it is now seriously compromised---with severe discoloration, disintegrating mortar, and falling bricks.
Volunteer members of the Maudslay State Park Association are working hard to fund a professional rehabilitation of the brickwork, and we need your help. The state owns the park, but it has only limited funding for maintenance across the entire park system. Fortunately, there is something we can do about this! You can help us ensure that the wall is repaired and the garden protected for generations to come.
Please send your much needed donation to the Maudslay State Park Association, 74 Curzon Mill Road, Newburyport MA 01950 or by credit card through this PayPal link. The wisteria, dogwoods, dahlias, roses, peonies phlox and hydrangeas will thank you!
Your contribution matters, because the number of individual donors is as important as the total amount.
