Very unusual rock formations with plants in and between them. Unique. Gave me lots of good ideas on which plants to place on my own property. Neatly kept.

I have taken a number of visits to Leonard Buck gardens and enjoyed each time. Winding paths take you through various flower beds and rock formations. The pond with a bridge is very serene. Your visit can be done in 30 minutes or 2 hours depending on your pace. It is a short ride from the USGA Golf House and museum so a combined visit is doable.

Went to this part with my mother and father to walk through, for my mother and I loved to observe all the wonderful flowers that surround the walkpaths of this garden.

Very beautiful gardens. Kinda small property so you can cover the entire place in short time. Large variety of plants. Bring a camera to capture all the colorful flowers. Clean and well maintained.

I go here frequently, it is in a valley so there is a sense of being surrounded by nature. The plants are mostly naturally occuring, with some plantings of flowers and shrubs. also there may be birds, not handicap accesible. Don't go within 3 days of heavy rain.
