Reviewed May 4, 2013

This a nice place to invest an hour if you are looking for a relaxing way to spend a saturday afternoon.
I have driven by the house a hundred times and never knew about the facility.

“Wonderful for nature lovers!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I will return. They are not open all day, so if you are planning a trip to go and see them, I would recommend that you call them to see what the hours of operation are. They have education activities too that would be great if you have children with you when you visit! Just amazing!

“Beautiful!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

I would recommend anyone to come and see this beautiful garden. Although, it is very hard to find because it is hidden behind a house

If you like, flowers, peaceful settings, bunnies and birds in a magical, Secret Garden-type atmosphere, then you'll love it. Bring your camera!

“So peaceful”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Even though we visited in the dead of winter, the gardens were still so enjoyable. And the lenten roses were blooming! We walked around the gardens and were impressed with the variety of styles used to make the gardens a place of tranquility. The short video is worth seeing before starting the tour
