After canceling last year’s tour due to the Covid pandemic, we are happy to announce that our 27th Annual Countryside Garden Tour is on!
SATURDAY, JULY 10, 2021, 9AM – 4PM
(RAIN DATE SUNDAY, JULY 11)
This event promotes horticulture and landscape design through a self-guided tour of several spectacular gardens in Warwick and the surrounding area. It is one of the most anticipated club functions of the year. Funds raised will benefit community programs and the maintenance of nine gardens throughout the town of Warwick. It’s a great way to get out and enjoy the outdoors again.
Socially distanced fun!
Prepare to be Dazzled
Here is a sneak peek at some of the lovely gardens featured in this year’s tour. More gardens will be added soon.
Built in 1820, this historic farmhouse sits on 31 acres of beautiful woodlands and gardens. Caitlyn and Richard purchased the home in 2014 and have worked tirelessly in restoring its’ charm while adding their own personal touches. They were married in a small field where the wedding arch still stands in front of a grove of old crab apple trees next to a towering dawn redwood. The main gardens start from the back of the home where a rock waterfall cascades down to a pond surrounded by a rock garden filled with yuccas and year-round flowering perennials. An arbor with honeysuckle and grapevine add quiet charm while rock paths lead you to open fields and walking paths to numerous perennial and wildflower gardens. The property is in bloom all year with hundreds of different trees, bushes, perennials and native plants providing color and enjoyment to all. Most importantly, their hive of honeybees, which was established two years ago, provides enjoyment and fun for this happy couple and their young daughter.
Set on an expansive property, these grounds feature multiple terraces filled with iris, daylilies in vivid colors, towering ornamental grasses, potted trees and shrubs. Take a stroll around the walking trails that encircle a gorgeous pond filled with water plants and other native flora.
This private and quaint garden will leave your senses in complete relaxation as you recline in the most eye-popping red adirondack chairs you have ever seen!!! Multiple plantings of perennials and annuals flow all around the property in completeness…
After only a few years of owning this property, the owners have creatively incorporated an extensive collection of potted plants containing both annuals and perennials you won’t see anywhere else! Hanging baskets fill the entire front of the house to start off your color extravaganza.
