FentonRiver Garden is open most Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 to 5:30 and welcomes visitors any time by appointment. Just call 860-429-3646 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shauna Shane's FentonRiver Studio and home is an old button factory located in historic Gurleyville, Storrs, CT. She has turned this sunny, open space into a destination garden by designing and building a Rock walled Koi pond nestled inside a perennial cottage garden with garden sculpture everywhere you look.
A fairie landscape in a rowboat, cement cast leaves, all manner of garden art and living garden sculpture attest to the creative spirit that resides here at FentonRiver.
