When the Sharps added the formal gardens, they hired one of the most accomplished landscape architects of her time, Marian Cruger Coffin, to design the gardens. Ms. Coffin is also well-known for her contributions to the gardens at Winterthur, the University of Delaware, as well as estates in New York and Connecticut.
In 1998, Preservation Delaware, Inc. launched a capital campaign and a major restoration project of the Marian Coffin Gardens. Their goal was to return the gardens to their original appearance. The restoration was completed in 1999. Visitors can now enjoy the timeless elegance and beauty of these unique gardens and fountains.
Preservation Delaware, Inc. will continue to operate the gardens and maintain the high standards achieved with this restoration.
