The Harpers Family Topiary Garden in San Diego


The Harpers family are happy to show off their topiary free of charge, as long as everyone promises to be careful and not climb on their art, regardless of the temptation (which I had urge to do). The suburban garden museum includes garden art like animals, figure of a gardener, etc.  The Harpers Family continue to come up with new designs and shapes to their landscape, so every months or so there are new garden art.


The Harpers family welcomes anyone to enjoy their outdoors “museum” or “garden”, but do please remember that this is a private residence and please be respectful. There are signs not to touch or climb, so please follow the guidelines. I believe the best time would be in the evening to take a photo as the sun sets on the garden which would create a great photo! I went during the day, but what ever time you go, it will be a great photo. It is  definitely a hidden gem in San Diego and not a lot people take the time to enjoy this masterpiece. Next time you are in San Diego, go check it out! You wont be disappointed.

It is free. Donations are not required. Parking is open and free since it is a residential area. I would say that you will be there for 5-20 minutes, depending on your pace.

Definitely make this a must-go attraction or hidden gem in San Diego. Spread the word. Spread the love.
