Please take the time to read our Garden Visiting Etiquette.
1) Please take caution and be mindful of uneven pathways and rocky surfaces throughout the garden. 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.
2) NO PETS. We ask that you leave your pets at home while visiting Stonecrop. This includes even the smallest of dogs that can fit in a tote.
3) 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.
4) 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.
5) The taking of cuttings, seeds, leaves 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.
6) Smoking of any kind, including vaping, is not allowed on Stonecrop grounds.
7) To preserve our peaceful atmosphere we ask visitors to:
– turn cell phones off before entering the garden.
– please use quiet “indoor” voices.
8) Picnicking is allowed at the cafe tables surrounding the Gardeners’ Bothy and picnic tables in Spruce Vista II. 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.
9) 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.
Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions are not permitted at Stonecrop. Stonecrop does provide the gardens for wedding and engagement photography on our open days. Please call or email for photography guidelines and application.
