Nice small local gardens. Timing of course with blooms is important, and when lots of photo ops. Nice Water features to take pictures by. Historical home on property is cool to walk around if you like old homes.

We had a wonderful tour, led by Dr. Gilbert who developed the gardens and lived in the house for many years. There were many different plants in bloom. Dr. Gilbert shared with us the development of the gardens and talked about the various sculptures on display. Dr Gilbert also explained how they renovated the house. This place is a real... More

Once a thriving family homestead it passed through other hands. The owners continued and expanded the landscape of the main house and surrounding gardens. A terrific place to put a name with a planting. Multiple types of shrubs and trees planted in their own sections including name and the date originally planted. Useful if you are purchasing landscape plants to... More

Nice to have this garden in our city, adds charm and ambience. Love the unexpected location. Helpful volunteers. Enjoyed the sculptures, esp floating near the waterfall. Rose garden beautiful. Did not care for the inclusion of the spiritual flags; seemed jarring. Will visit again to see more.

I did not know this place even existed. We enjoyed strolling around the gardens on a beautiful fall day. We took our cameras and practiced our photography. Reasonable price, low key entertaining. Looks like it would be a good place for a wedding.

This was a lovely surprise, found courtesy of YELP when we were in the area for a visit to the Southern Museum. There are 32 acres of grounds planted with many many varieties of plants - flowers, trees, shrubs, etc. The rose garden was lovely. The biggest treat was the flower garden path where we encountered half a dozen types... More

I have just recently been introduced to this beautiful hidden treasure. Just a short drive outside of Atlanta you can find this serene garden. The admission price was reasonable for the 13 acres of beautiful and unique plants. There are lots of benches to just sit and enjoy the sights around you. It was not crowded at all and was... More

This is a lovely, surprisingly spacious garden in the midst of a modest subdivision. Give yourself plenty of time. It was not at all crowded when we went in the middle of the week on a summer afternoon, and we read every sign and enjoyed sitting next to the koi pond.

Tucked away oasis and gardens where you would least expect to find one. Very impressed by specimen peices. You must see this garden and old house. Perfect for small quaint weddings of family outing.
