MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ – A Poolside Villa garden on Robin Hood Road will be one of the six private gardens on view during the Tour of Mountainside Gardens to be held on Saturday, June 7.  This beautiful backyard garden features a breathtaking koi pond, swimming pool and covered patio entertainment area all surrounded by lush and exotic plantings and whimsical woodland creatures.  Visitors will pass a beautiful front yard garden before entering the iron gates to be taken in by the sights beyond.  The homeowner’s love of nature is evident in the detail and variety of plantings.  It’s a true outdoor summertime family living and entertainment oasis and not to be missed.

Each of the six gardens on the Mountainside tour shows tour guests what is possible in a backyard garden.  From this Robin Hood Road Poolside Villa and entertainment garden to a secluded and lush Shade Garden on Stony Brook Lane, there is something for everyone.  Each visitor will find garden ideas or spark an interest for implementing a fresh approach in gardens anywhere.  The tour runs from 10am to 4pm with a special Garden Tour lunch planned at the Publick House restaurant in Mountainside which will open only for tour guests from 12-4pm.
