Japanese Garden is one of the prized treasures of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. This garden took influence from Japanese gardens within the Edo Period, which is from 1603 to 1869. The Japanese Garden was designed by renowned architect, Koichi Kawana, in 1985. Currently, the Japanese Garden is maintained by Dr. David Slawson. 24 types of shrubs, 3 ground covers, and 20 different kinds of trees wrap around the intricate design and architectural details of the Japanese Garden.
Rain Gardens are used as an effective way to control runoff within the grounds of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Instead of establishing storm sewers, or allowing rain to flood the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, the plants in the Rain Gardens soak the extra rain and use it to grow and prosper. Thus, runoff is effectively controlled while providing nourishment for magnificent flora and fauna.
Clotilde Irvine Sensory Garden was created with the help of the Therapeutic Horticulture Program. The Clotilde Irvine Sensory Garden is a garden that evokes all of the senses. While most gardens are designed for visual appeal, this garden takes into account all of the senses. It is specifically designed to cater to people who are in wheel chairs, so they can perfectly see and explore the diversity of flora and fauna. Photo: Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
