Lendonwood houses seven distinct gardens, each with its own theme and atmosphere.
The individual gardens within Lendonwood include: the Display Garden toward the entrance; the Oriental Garden showcasing shade plants; the Japanese Pavilion Garden with Koi Pond; the English Terrace Garden highlighting sunny beds and rhododendrons.
....The American Backyard Garden, where plants thrive with very little water; the Angel of Hope Garden, surrounding a statue of an angel - in memory of lost loved ones; and the Azalea Garden, which is abloom in April.
Every corner you turn will have breathtaking scenery and plants. This waterfall and pond are so peaceful and relaxing.
