Boswell Family Garden

A stacked stone wall serves as the backbone of this charming garden and is mirrored by a myriad of gorgeous rose varieties.

In 2004, Dr. George Boswell surprised his family with this incredible Christmas gift. Designed by landscape architect Warren Johnson of Fallcreek Gardens, The Boswell Family Garden comprises the area north of the McCasland Sunken Garden and is surrounded by the Gazebo, Octagonal Fountain and Magnolia Allee. As guests enter the garden from the west, an overlook offers a beautiful vista of White Rock Lake and the surrounding gardens. Carefully trimmed hollies and a low double helix hedge line the walkway that joins the Boswell Family Garden to the McCasland Sunken Garden.
