Public Tours

Public Tours are offered on Saturdays April through June. The Glimpse of the Garden Tour is a 60 minute guided tour that gives you a glimpse into our history, sculpture and gardens.  This tour takes place every Saturday at 10:30 AM. Pre-Registration is available and we require 5 sign ups in advance to hold these public tours. If you have questions, please feel free to call us at 770-919-0248.





Private Garden Tours

Bring your private group (minimum 5 people) to the Gardens during our regular business hours for a 90 minute tour.  During the tour you will see some of our 3,000+ species of plants, learn about the history of the Hiram Butler House (ca. 1881) and view the 31 pieces of contemporary sculpture thoughtfully placed in the garden.  Add in the rose garden, conifer garden, vegetable garden and bonsai display and you will see why our Garden is considered a must see destination.

Tours are $10/person and must be booked at least two weeks in advance.  A deposit is required.  Please contact the Gardens at 770-919-0248 or email for more information.
