United States of America, Massachusetts, Norfolk County, Brookline
Lower Faulkner (Brookline, Massachusetts)
"Behind the house is a conventional garden, enriched by three variously shaped pools, each with a fountain. A connecting path leads to a New England version of a Japanese stroll garden. From an overgrown wooded area a magnificent rock of conglomerate stone, commonly known as Roxbury pudding stone was uncovered. A pool was built underneath it and water is circulated to run over the rock. Several Japanese touches were incorporated: black sea washed stones under a dogwood, moss, a whimsical dragon 17 feet long made of climbing hydrangea, Japanese lanterns, a splendid stand of Hinoki cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana'), unusual azaleas, hosta and grasses. The garden received the Albert Cameron Burrage Gold medal in 1984 from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society."
