August 2nd, 2009 · 2 Comments

Got gardening fever? Love horticulture, botanics and the like? Head out to one of Long Island’s Gardens and Estates right around the corner and enjoy some beautiful gardens as well as a great architecture and history.

To the home gardener, a trip to someone else’s garden/estate can renew inspiration and appreciation for the art of gardening.  It allows us a peek at the diversity of Long Island’s environment and gives us an opportunity to learn about plant species that do well in our home gardens.  Not to mention we can take a walk and just enjoy the fruit of someone else’s labor.  And when we get back to our garden, maybe we will have learned a thing or two.

I know the following list of gardens in and around Long Island will be a good resource for myself to check on when I have the itch to walk in a great garden and hope it can be a great resource for you as well.  I am positive this list is not complete so if you know a nice garden to visit around the Long Island area, I ask you to comment it below or send an email to david@ligrows.com so I can add it to the list.  So without further adieu, our list of beautiful gardens in and around Long Island (with links to their websites and map links):
