  • Beautiful. Unique. Very different from ABG. Not nearly as much plant variety as ABG, but the landscaping is is much more picturesque. LOTS of walking unless you pay a pricey $5 per person for the tram ride.
  • A casual 45 min. drive on winding blacktop roads from Alpharetta brings you to a wonderful botanical paradise - Gibbs Gardens. We bought season passes so we could come frequently and enjoy the outdoor settings and excellent lunches as well as the beautiful flowers though the season. A definite 5-star experience.
  • I was overwhelmed by the extraordinary beauty of this place and the perfect weather we had for our visit yesterday, but I need to know what you are doing to conserve and protect the native wildlife. I have read reviews that claim all wildlife and native wild flowers are being removed and destroyed with no regard for their place in the natural ecosystem. What dangerous chemicals are being used to create such perfection?
  • If you want to experience how heaven may look like, than I highly recommend you visit Gibbs Gardens. Wow! So much beauty everywhere. I was extremely impressed and blown away on how much work and detail was put into this place. 32 years in the making.
  • it was along drive for me but worth it. The beautiful grounds were perfectly maintained. Nice collection of Japanese Maples and azaleas in a large Japanese style garden. Other collections include roses, hydrangea, and daffodils.
