Our Story


Stonegate Gardens is one of New England’s most unique nurseries for specimen trees, shrubs, unusual conifers and a vast selection of perennials and annuals. Located west of Boston in historic Lincoln, Massachusetts, Stonegate Gardens is situated on over five acres of land near the Massachusetts Audubon Society, Codman Community Farms, and Walden Pond.


In 1998, owner Bruce MacDowell purchased the former McKnight’s nursery and farm stand and transformed it into what you see today: a beautifully landscaped environment consisting of fieldstone retaining walls, brick walkways, bluestone terraces and a fieldstone barn with connecting waterfalls. Stonegate Gardens provides an exceptional selection of plant materials — specializing in unique seasonal plantings, container planting, personalized garden design consultation and installation.
