Soak in the beauty of coastal Rhode Island.

Situated on an acre of land, Sakonnet Garden is a long-term project/private garden that is 40 years old. In the mid-1970s, it had Autumn Olives, Oriental Bittersweet, and some local Arrow-wood Viburnums. It has since expanded to include outdoor garden spaces that are separate from each other. This place has ongoing experiments using different plants, color mixing, lighting, and space. A group of individuals from Rhode Island have worked together to create the winding trails that lead to whimsical areas of the garden. John Gwynne and Mikel Folcarelli use texture, colors, and scale to make each space extraordinary and unique. John is a trained landscape architect who is involved with global conservation education and local meadow restoration.

Seasonally, the blooming flowers add color and life to Sakonnet Garden. There are also glass fishnet floats that reflect the sunlight and backlights illuminating several plants. This outdoor space is truly a masterpiece. Don't miss out on the Red Mughal Pavilion set above a carpet of Palmettos overlooking a pond. Nature lovers of all ages will find peace and tranquility at the Sakonnet Garden.
