The garden covers 20 of its 37 acres, and features a collection of rare and unusual plants, and imaginative garden design and hardscape features, such as several water features, a Japanese tea house, a 3/4-acre grass painting, a Belgian fence of espaliered apple trees, an allée, and the dark woods. Sculptures–many constructed from salvaged farm equipment, kitchen implements, and automotive parts–are also scattered throughout the garden.

Bedrock Gardens is a private garden, but its owners are working hard to change it into a public garden. We have a nonprofit, Friends of Bedrock Gardens, who is to take it on.

Bedrock Gardens is open to the public every first and third weekend from May to September and on Columbus Day weekend, and there are many special events. Suggested Donation: $10/person, children free. Special Events are also held: see the website for information.

Bedrock Gardens is conveniently located half-way between Portland and Boston, a half-hour west of Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Please visit www.bedrockgardens.org for more information and for the schedule of special events. See you in the garden!
