The Riverhead Garden Club was hard at work last week restoring the English-style knot garden that sits between the town’s two landmark buildings on East Main Street, the Benjamin House and the Davis-Corwin House.

The houses front Main Street on the East End Arts property.

The knot garden has four corners edged with boxwoods and a triangle shaped garden edged with boxwoods in the center. Each of the beds are planted with seasonal annuals by Ivy Acres owner Jack van de Wetering, and some of the beds have rose bushes.
