Cove Garden looks out onto Conner Cove. The house was originally the carriage house for the big house on Fernald Cove facing the entrance to Somes Sound.
As you approach the property, the largest area of the garden is a long border of annuals and perennials that faces the front of the house and is backed by a strip of trees and Connor Point Road. Some of the taller perennials include delphinium, thalictrum, ligularia, and eupatorium. There are also rugosa roses, lilies, astilbe and day lilies. The annuals usually include Chinese Forget-Me-Nots which self sow, a wide variety of nicotianas, cleome, impatiens, and begonias.
Other areas of the garden include a tall trellis for clematis, and five stone block edged, raised beds that back up to the house and deck, that have lilies, phlox, Japanese anemones and a few assorted other flowers. There is also an area behind the house with a variety of ferns and small native evergreens with several Lunaform lily bowls and paths mulched with pine needles.
