Please take the time to read our
Garden Visiting Etiquette
before starting your tour…
To ensure the safety of our visitors, preserve our gardens, and enable all visitors equal enjoyment, we ask that you adhere to the following:
- No pets please. We ask that you leave your pets at home while you are visiting Stonecrop.
- We advise wearing “sensible” shoes that provide traction, such as sneakers, since areas of the garden may be wet and slick. Please note that no area of the garden is paved. Most surfaces are uneven and walking paths are either grass, gravel or mulch.
- Well-supervised children are welcome to the garden, but we ask that parents closely oversee them and take precautions to ensure their safety, especially near the rock ledges and pools.
- No screaming, no running and climbing, no handling or feeding the animals.
- Please note that many areas of the garden are inaccessible to strollers and wheelchairs. Most of the paths are too narrow; surfaces are often muddy or uneven. Visitors with limited mobility are welcome to contact us prior to their visit to discuss the areas that are accessible and how best to reach them.
- The taking of cuttings, seeds or flowers is prohibited. If you would like to have a plant identified, a member of staff would be more than happy to assist you at the site of the plant. Do not pick any part of the plant.
- Smoking is not allowed on Stonecrop grounds.
- To preserve our peaceful atmosphere we ask visitors to:
- turn cell phones off before entering the garden.
- please use quiet “indoor” voices.
- Picnicking is allowed in specified areas of the garden only. We ask that you carry out all trash. No large coolers, chairs, blankets, radios, or outdoor recreational equipment are allowed. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted.
- Photography is permitted for private use only. Professional or commercial photography is not permitted without prior written agreement.
Stonecrop Gardens reserves the right to ask a visitor to leave for inappropriate or offensive behavior.
Visitors will be held liable for any damage to Garden property.
