26th Annual Garden Walk

Garden Walk

Since 1996, the Indianapolis Garden Club has showcased beautiful, private gardens across the city each summer. We continue by highlighting local artists working en plein air within each garden with opportunities to purchase art.   IGC proudly directs all proceeds from our Garden Walk back into the Indianapolis area.  Since the inception of Garden Walk, IGC has granted over $500,000 in the areas of conservation, civic improvement, and beautification to projects within our community.

The Gardens

A One-of-a-Kind Welcome

Originally from California, the current owners inherited an extensive perennial garden in 2007.
The ever-changing retreat includes a koi pond, an arched garden bridge, and a guest cottage.
The outdoor entertaining space features a repurposed island that welcomes friends and family. 
Pergolas create structure for additional garden viewing including a cozy guest cottage nestled in
this magical backyard retreat. 
Artists: Justin Vining and Sarah Anderson 

Ever Evolving!

Tucked into a quiet pocket between two busy thoroughfares, discover a flourishing garden that has grown over 30 years in tandem with one family’s desires and passions. Strong structural design creates a base for play, exploration, and respite thanks to the homeowners’ commitment to continual connection with nature. Thoughtfully created spaces honor the past, present, and future with a welcoming spirit.

A Bride, A Bouquet, and A Balcony

Merge the rose-trellised entry of a nearly 100-year-old formal Italianate home with a manicured front lawn bordered by waves of flowers.  Next add a trickling fountain, a mix of red maples, white magnolias, redbuds, and a sprinkling of dogwoods. Overlooking a stately courtyard garden is a Juliet balcony where the owners’ son and daughter-in-law tossed the bridal bouquet in this stunning fairytale setting.

A Georgian Colonial Treasure

This unusual wedge-shaped property offers distinct gardening zones.  An attached greenhouse allows the owner to start seedlings each spring. The adjacent parterre is interspersed with annuals, herbs, and vegetables.  A large welcoming expanse beckons guests with a colorful perennial border to linger and unwind.   A granite fountain and a revered sculpture complete the design.

An Entertaining Enclave

Imagine a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home with endless possibilities for outdoor entertaining.   Whether lounging by the pool under a custom Italian umbrella  or chatting with guests by the firepit, this property offers many entertaining options.  Order, symmetry, and uniformity grace the well-placed specimens of oaks, maples, boxwood, river birch, and a lush border of strawberry vanilla hydrangeas.
