About the Mountsier-Hardie Garden

The Mountsier-Hardie Garden was designed by famed landscape architect Richard Hartlage and owners Silas Mountsier and Graeme Hardie. The two-plus acre space is not generally open to the public and has been featured in many publications lauding its beauty. The garden features grand views, areas of quiet contemplation, outdoor sculptures, and hundreds of rare and common plant and flower varieties.
