Beyond the Garden Gate: The 2013 Ross Garden Tour


“Beyond the Garden Gate”, the 17th annual Ross Garden Tour, takes place on the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend. The tour is a fundraiser for the Fine Arts programs at Ross School, a public K-8 school. Five beautiful private gardens will be open for viewing from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., and visitors are free to explore them at their own pace.

Highlights of this year’s tour include a terraced woodland garden lush with rhododendrons and azaleas within existing redwood groves, an expansive yard with multiple varieties of cedars and a fountain framed by large arches of Coastal Tea Tree, the elegant grounds of one of the oldest properties in Ross, reimagined in 2010 for a young family, and an expertly planted small garden space that is sure to inspire many.

We hope that you will join us for this very special event. Garden Tour tickets are $40 when purchased in advance online, and $50 when purchased on the day of the event. The ticket price includes parking, shuttle transportation, and admission to all five gardens. A boxed lunch prepared by Woodlands Market will also be available for purchase.
