Garden is nice, in special sculpture garden part, but most of flowers are done. So if you are going to see flowers go before middle of May. It's not friendly for stroller.

Was very surprised by the lack of flowers in bloom. The irises were beautiful. But I expected a lot more flowers to be out. Everything was very green.

Beautiful gardens. Fun to walk the gardens in the different seasons. Go there often. Love to visit at Christmas time to see the house decorated.

If you desire a lovely and tranquil country scene, visit Ladew throughout the year. It is gorgeous with great walking trails. Check out their website for special events. Always fun, I bring my out of town guest for a visit.

Don't miss the house tour. The brochure made it easy to do a self guided walk of the gardens. I can't say the visitor center staff weren't very helpful or friendly. They were closing up the gift shop at 4:45 which I thought was not...More

Worth the price of admission. We went here for the sculpted shrubbery but there are many different gardens with various themes; Rose garden, water lilies, a metal sculpture garden, Venus' temple, a tea garden, and more. There is a small quaint cafe, a butterfly enclosure,...More

When we were there Lawdew was closed to the public, except for the program about syrup. We stayed about 10 minutes away, there was a delicious restaurant called Tarq's Grille where we ate. I'd go there again!
