- In keeping with its urban location and city gardeners’ space considerations, Laurel Hill Gardens stocks rare varieties that interact with existing landscapes without dominating the space: dwarf Hinoki cypresses, dwarf nandina and coral-bark maples. For city dwellers who crave at least the appearance of privacy, there’s clumping bamboo that adds texture and height—and creates a screen from neighbors’ adjoining terraces. – Laura Kuhn, Philadelphia
- Step through the gate of Laurel Hill Gardens...and what will you see? Of course there will be well-kept, gorgeous plants, but depending on the day, you might also see people taking seasonal workshops, listening to live bands, picking up free compost, or gathering with others for a group meeting. Even during the fall, Laurel Hill provides garden inspiration. – Aimee Theriault, Hill on the Avenue
