Tour of Mountainside Gardens

June 4, 2014 at 9:32 PM

Two of the six Mountainside Gardens on view during the June 7th Tour of Mountainside Gardens are specially themed and staged for a Garden Wedding and a Tuscan Garden.

The Appletree Lane garden is in the backyard of a beautiful brand new home.  It is newly landscaped by Harol Landscaping and the lush expansive lawn area will be staged and ready for a Garden Wedding.  Featuring seating in front of a wedding arch and tables designed by Christoffers Florist, Millburn Florist and The Mountainside Restoration Committee, this yard is spectacular.  Linda Condrillo will be on hand to show and sell her fantastic photo cards and prints – many of which are photos taken in our gardens.

On Rolling Rock Road, a garden which is owned by a florist becomes a tranquil Tuscan oasis.  With a variety of Tuscan-inspired clay pots and urns planted with unique specimens, this poolside garden is reminiscent of the Italian countryside.  Visitors to this lush and gracious garden will be calmed and inspired by its serene tranquility.

The tour runs from 10am to 4pm.
