Here are the three gardens that visitors can choose from:
Phillis Warden 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
531 Bedford Center Road
Bedford Hills, NY 10507
Some of the highlights of this garden include three water gardens, a formal vegetable garden, wildflower garden, tree platform overlooking the marshlands, and a formal croquet court. The garden extends over seven acres.
Premium Pond Garden 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
10 Pryer Lane
Larchmont, NY 10538
This garden has been planted to take advantage of water views. Pink, purple, and chartreuse perennials and annuals are in bloom from June to August. As the season progresses, hydrangeas, echinaceas, and dahlias color the area.
Vivian and Ed Merrin 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
2547 Maple Avenue
Cortlandt Manor, NY 10566
This garden has been featured in several books and magazines, most notably "The New Garden Paradise: Great Private Gardens of the World." Over 300 mountain laurels surround the garden, in a planting that makes them part of the total landscape. The garden has four greenhouse structures that house rare tropical plants, which are on display during the summer.
