Specializing in Japanese maples, unusual conifers, hard-to-find perennials and uncommon annuals, Stonegate Gardens on the Lincoln-Weston line is a gardener’s paradise. Set on five acres, Stonegate Gardens offers a unique selection of specimen trees and shrubs of all sizes. Their on-site landscape designers will assist you with choosing the correct plants to complement your home.
During the summer, roses are displayed on the antique brick sunburst terrace, designed by owners Bruce and Roy MacDowell. “People can come here and get ideas for their own homes,” says manager Lynne Bower. “It’s a place that invites them to explore.” Meander down the bluestone paths or relax by the fieldstone waterfall and find yourself in a pastoral sanctuary that takes you back in time. Open year-round, Stonegate’s picturesque interior features seasonal displays of glazed pots and gifts, topiaries, and silk and dried arrangements. Fresh arrangements are also available.
