Sherill House Serenity Garden

This courtyard garden for an urban Alzheimer’s care facility in Boston, measures 30×60 feet and is the only outdoor space available for patients, families and staff.  Challenging site conditions include a site surrounded by 6 story buildings and 15’ high brick walls and urban traffic noise. Adjacent to the Emerald Necklace, the garden is designed using materials commonly found in New England gardens including bluestone paving, a water feature and a variety of familiar New England garden plants that provide seasonal interest. The garden also offers the opportunity for a short walk, social interaction and places of quiet conversation. Custom designed metal trellises connected to the existing concrete sunscreen support climbing roses and clematis.
