Welcome to The Whimsical Gardens

Our Purpose

The purpose of "The Whimsical Gardens" is two-fold.

1st: To provide a beautiful garden that can be used during those special "Photographic Occasions".  Go to the Garden Gallery and the Photographic Occasions Gallery to see how you can utilize the gardens for your special photos.

2nd: To provide hand-carved stone sculptures that are unique, whimsical, and will stand the test of time.  Go to the Sculpture Portfolios to see examples of unusual garden themed sculptures that will compliment your home and garden.

The Gardens


After nearly 35 years in the making, and from virtually transforming a cornfield into a mature, landscaped garden, "The Whimsical Gardens" is a secret out of the ordinary.  It was conceived with the primary goal of creating a woodland garden setting where one can go to read, meditate, or wander while enjoying nature’s beauty.

It has been our intent to share the experience of this lovely garden with you while you capture your memories in photos.  Now, with the addition of our hand-carved marble gazebo, your photographs can truly be unique.

You are welcome to provide your own photographer or choose one from our partners list.



Stone Sculptures

All pieces are original one of a kind.  Although most designs have a garden theme, please review the "Sculpture Portfolios" to view the wide variety of subjects available.  Special commissioned work using your own design can be accommodated.  You will want to view the ‘Awards’ and ‘Memorials’ portfolios for some additional ideas.  These one of kind artworks are perfect as special gifts.  All pieces are signed, numbered, and dated.

The garden is also a unique place to experience the ancient art of stone sculpting.  Just about every day you can experience the unique transformation of stone being fashioned into works of art.  You will find pieces carved from marble, limestone, sandstone, and travertine to name a few.  Most stone is selected from surplus architectural stone.  This type of high quality stone contributes to the unique character and formation of each stone sculpture. 


The Whimsical Gardens is a private garden located in Harrison Ohio.

All visits are by appointment only.

A special note: The gardens are a non-smoking environment.
