Patrons can visit the gardens on a self-guided tour before or after the Architecture and Landscape Tour. Gardens are open for the self-guided tour from noon-4:00 pm.
This special tour unlocks the gates of selected private and historic gardens for self-guided exploration. Ticket holders will enjoy springtime gardens located in Savannah’s National Landmark Historic District, which is the largest in the United States. All the gardens are located in the area North of Gaston Street (NOGS) to the Savannah River.
As part of the tour, guests are invited to a "Garden Party on the Green", Southern Tea and tour at the Green-Meldrim House. This delightful garden party includes a sampling of Southern tea staples, a tour of the Green-Meldrim House (a National Historic Landmark for its outstanding example of Gothic Revival architecture in the South), and an outdoor garden party complete with demonstrations and entertainment.
