Fairview Garden

Roslindale, MA
Rare plants/plant collection, Woodland/shade garden

Tucked a few steps from the Peters Hill gate of the Arnold Arboretum, is a peaceful oasis of a garden. The owner began gardening about 18 years ago, initially inspired by perennials gifted from neighbors. You will be greeted with the varied colors and textures of maturing weeping conifers. Look for the swirling umbrella pine and colorful Japanese maple. A newer front bluestone walkway leads to a fieldstone wall, and in back there is a sense of quiet awe with dappled sunlight and subtle splashes of color. Zen statuary and handmade trellises support an extensive clematis display and give a Japanese feel to the garden. Garden is partially accessible.
