Celebrate Frederick’s 2009 Beyond the Garden Gates Garden Tour features seven of Frederick’s finest private gardens, and three spectacular public gardens, and is sure to inspire your green thumb! The tour will be held in Frederick, Maryland on Saturday, May 16th and Sunday, May 17th, from 1 to 5 p.m., rain or shine.
The event will appeal to everyone, from the novice gardener to the seasoned pro. This year’s tour showcases a variety of gardening styles, from Old World charm and formal elegance, to English-infused beauty.
The gardens for this year’s tour follow:
The Garden of Randy & Amy Draper - 11 N. Jefferson Street
The front yard of this home is a welcoming mix of boxwood, hydrangea, roses, nandina, mixed perennials and annuals. Now, travel to the back of the house to witness what the owners describe as a series of “outdoor rooms.” The dining area is located between the house and the cottage - which serves as the pool house and family room. The grass pathway is lined with Foster holly trees, European Hornbeans, Boxwoods, Otto Luyken Laurel, perennials and annuals leading to the pergola covered patio. The patio area, overlooking the pool and formal garden, is framed by Stewartia, Japanese Snowbell, Crepe Myrtle and Magnolia trees. The pool concludes the space with a set of lawn steps leading into a small grass lawn and a Williamsburg style shed.
The Garden of Brian & Suzanne Dylus - 701 Rosemont Avenue
Would you have guessed this garden was once waist-high in brambles, shrub trees and weeds? Originally turned into a pumpkin patch for the homeowner’s small children, the garden was gradually streamlined into ten planting beds and paths, a border of hemlock trees and a slate sitting area. Still casual and family oriented, the homeowners’ tend to live out on the patio in the spring, summer, and fall. The raised beds now hold roses and a fruitful vegetable and herb garden, supplying beauty and function in this large space. This garden has been lovingly cared for by the homeowners, who insist that they wouldn’t have it any other way.
The Garden of Peter Brehm & John Day - 318 W. College Terrace
Nestled in the Sylvan College Park neighborhood designed in the early 1900s by noted American landscape architect George Burnap, 318 West College Terrace is divided into a front yard space and backyard space, connected on the west side by a shady walk that culminates at a rose-covered gateway arch. The prior owners installed the garden's “bones” and mature trees about 10 years ago. In the last two years the new owners have built on this by expanding the front and rear flower beds and adding numerous trees, shrubs, perennials, and bulbs. A casual, colorful and carefree perennial garden accented by bushes and trees are in line with the goal of creating an additional “room” to the house by fostering a garden with all-year interest. Make sure to take note of the Franklinia to the right of the patio looking out from the house. First identified by noted horticulturalist John Bartram, and named after his good friend Benjamin Franklin, on a trip to the Altamaha River in Georgia. The tree is now extinct in the wild since 1803.
The Garden of John & Deborah Rooney - 310 W. College Terrace
A family friendly surprise awaits visitors behind the gates of this home. Within this unexpected, usable space is a large patio overlooking the garden and swimming pool. This garden is used as an extension of the homeowners’ living space, and has hosted guests for weddings, showers, birthdays, book clubs and intimate dinner parties. The homeowners also enjoy sitting on their patio and watching the sky light up with fireworks from Baker Park every Independence Day with family & friends. Please note the two unique fountains - an antique iron arched window insert attached to the owners’ home located near the herb pots, and the brand new Dutchman fountain on the left hand side of the yard. The right hand side of the backyard is complimented by the family’s first Christmas tree.
The Garden of Jim & Yvonne Reinsch - 406 Rockwell Terrace
The garden’s design takes its cue from the strong lines of the home's American Foursquare style architecture, reinforcing its classic style. During the renovation of the home 5 years ago, much care was taken to preserve the beautiful 100 year old Pin Oak tree. The terrace, flagstone walkways and plantings were designed around this anchor. The homeowners’ desire to have a carefree and low maintenance, yet sophisticated, garden with year-round interest has been achieved by the choice of plants that adapt well to our climate. It was a goal when designing the garden to create a space that would combine the interior of the home with the oversized front porch and the back terrace. The large hydrangeas that hug the front porch wall, as well at the walkway, give the outdoor space life and continuity.
The Garden of Lea Kline Allen - 152 W. Patrick Street
Casual and whimsical are the adjectives this homeowner uses to describe her garden. A designer of architectural landscapes, the homeowner uses this space to play in and blur the lines of structure. The garden itself is especially unique in that it is sunken below street level on all sides. The house rises to the front with a double wrap around sleeping porch and studio space. The pond in the courtyard, home to frogs, snails and guppies, helps to drown out traffic noises whenever the weather permits. The unusual plants, featuring unique textures and combinations, paired with the continuously changing wildlife in the pond transform this garden into a playground for nature and the homeowner.
The Garden of Tee Michel – 114 W. 2nd Street
This secluded formal garden is located among the original early 19th century outbuildings – a rarity in Maryland townhouse architecture. These outbuildings include stables, slave quarters, an ice and smoke house. Tour participants will get a peak into the Coachman’s House, which is now utilized as a garden room for the current owner. The gardens spacious pathways are made of large blocks of flagstone and schist. The center of the garden is highlighted with Queen Elizabeth and Peace roses. The pink and white dogwood and magnolias offer a burst of spring color. The herb and flower bed circles a water fountain which provides refreshment to the many feathered friends of the garden which live there year round.
18th Century Historical Garden of Schifferstadt Architectural Museum and Garden - 1110 Rosemont Avenue
Step back to the 18th Century in this heirloom garden highlighting traditional herbal plants and vegetables used by German settlers. Beautifully raised flowerbeds and local stone paths add to the nostalgic charm of this space. Take note of the many popular kitchen herbs throughout the garden, including Sweet Woodruff, yarrow, lamb’s ear and hyssop. In addition, Schifferstadt also boasts an orchard containing apple, pear, peach, cherry, quince and walnut trees. The garden and attached museum host educational tours on aspects of local history throughout the year. This garden is cared for by Christina Murphy, Head Gardener. Stop in for light refreshments as this is the Hospitality Center.
Heritage Garden of the Historical Society of Frederick County - 24 E. Church Street
This garden draws upon a unique ambience and historical setting to create an urban oasis in the heart of downtown Frederick. The history of Frederick has been witnessed by the magnificent Ash tree, located in the center of the garden, which is well over 100 years old. Featuring elegant period flower gardens bordered by a handsome brick path, a large open grassy area, stately trellised arbor and catering shed, the garden doubles as a community-gathering place and outdoor classroom. Behind the white picket fence is the Historical Society of Frederick County’s “Demonstration Garden.” This year’s theme for the demonstration garden is “Destination Plants” to complement the exhibit In and Out of Frederick County which opens June 12, 2009. The exhibit examines travel and tourism to and from Frederick County from the 1700’s through to modern times. The garden will feature plants whose names refer to a famous journey or destination.
The Market Street Garden and The Director’s Rose Garden of the Federated Charities of Frederick 22 S. Market Street
Two distinctive gardens can be found at this location, one an original “postage stamp” style garden and the other a secluded niche tucked behind the building. The Market Street Garden, situated along the side of the building, is reminiscent of the Greek revival style of the residence itself. Visitors will be welcomed by the original Wickersham wrought iron fencing and gates surrounding this space. The Director’s Rose Garden can be found in the rear of the building. Both gardens are dominated by roses. The Market Street Garden is further enhanced by a host of perennials and annuals, including hostas, English ivy and Prairie Mallow plants. Matt Shelton of Innovative Landscapes graciously donates his talents to help maintain these gardens.
As you’re wandering through each garden, take a minute to watch the local artists who will be creating their own vision of the space.

At about 1954 hours on April 28, 2009, OFC Hoxie responded to 160 Willowdale Drive for a report of an assault. The assault victim told OFC Hoxie that she had been on her balcony when she saw neighbors from the next building loading items into a van because they were moving. She said they were making a lot of noise, so she yelled at them to be quiet.
A few minutes later, she heard someone kicking her front door. When she went to her door and opened it, the arrestee, Allan Devon McAllister, pushed his way inside. The victim alleged that he struck her several times in the face, and pushed her to the ground. A witness saw McAllister leave the apartment with the victim’s laptop computer.

This annual awards program is just one component of the club’s ongoing partnerships with both The City of Frederick Police Department and Lincoln Elementary School. The partnership spans 12 years and has included numerous projects that donate time and resources to the school.
The Rotary Club of Carroll Creek has awarded law enforcement education scholarships, has been instrumental in the construction of the Police Activity League (PAL) Center, and stays actively involved with the PAL center and its programs that support youth.
The May 6th event is the club’s opportunity as members of the Frederick community to recognize the outstanding work, dedication and commitment of our city’s police officers and the educators and staff at Lincoln Elementary School.
The recipients will each be presented with the Rotary Foundation’s prestigious Paul Harris Fellowship, named after the founder of Rotary. These awards are given in recognition and appreciation of the recipients’ contributions to the humanitarian and educational objectives of the Rotary Foundation. The club sponsors and presents these awards annually to members of the community, who exemplify Rotary’s motto of “Service above Self” through their dedicated service and contributions to the community,
Rotary Club of Carroll Creek President Wally Olson stated that “The Rotary Club of Carroll Creek is honored to recognize once again the dedication, service and outstanding work of the officers of the Frederick City Police department and the staff of Lincoln Elementary. Our longstanding partnership is just a small way for us to show both of these organizations how much we and the community appreciate all that they do. We look forward to a continued relationship and are pleased that we can recognize these individuals for their hard work.”
Lincoln Elementary Principal Ann Reever comments, “Our teachers and staff are honored and appreciate this recognition that the Carroll Creek Rotary Club bestows upon us. We are dedicated to meeting the mission of the Frederick County Public Schools. The goal of our teachers and staff is to help our students excel at academics and become citizens that will contribute to our community. We look forward to our continued work with the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek and appreciate the club’s efforts in partnering with our school.
In addition to honoring an Officer of the Year and Educator of the Year, the club will also present a Student of the Year Award, to a deserving student nominated by the school who has demonstrated the attributes of leadership, character and service to others; qualities that mirror the ideals of Rotary.

The officers who have received the Officer of the Month award from the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek over the past year will also be in attendance, and this year’s Officer of the Year will be chosen from amongst them.
Chief Kim Dine said, “While many police departments have internal award programs, this public appreciation for their efforts is wonderful in so many ways. Our officers greatly appreciate this acknowledgment of their efforts to maintain and improve the quality of life in our great City of Frederick. I commend the men and women of the Frederick Police Department and extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the Carroll Creek Rotary for all that they do for our officers and our city, and for their support of our work over the years.”
