“Picture Perfect”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We have visited Yew Dell twice in two different seasons and are planning to make it a regular stop throughout the year. Each time we have appreciated the diversity of plants and been exposed to many we have never seen before. This has inspired us to try some new plants & to utilize others in new and interesting ways in our own garden. Think this would make an enjoyable experience for any age.

“Beautiful grounds to walk”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Absolutely beautiful. What a great place to visit and see what types of plants can be grown in the Kentucky climate and soils. Laid back and relaxed environment allows you to explore the gardens at your own pace.

I visited Yew Dell for a wedding. The grounds were gorgeous and the wedding setting was absolutely perfect along with the reception which was held in the barn. It is very peaceful here.

Immaculate grounds, breathtaking views, beautiful place. Great for photography as well. Many places to sit and relax and enjoy. Our 6 year old son even loved it! Will definitely be going back.

“Paradise in twenty minutes”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Yew Dell Gardens is one of Louisville's--Crestwood's best kept secrets. This is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. If you love flowers, trees, and plants this is the place for you. Russian sage, many varieties of peonies, hostas, roses, etc. You can amble through this beautiful garden at your own pace. There is a shop where you can purchase flowers and garden sculptures. This is well worth the drive.
