Join us for a day-long bus trip to Delaware Quarries (Langhorne, PA) and the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA).
After departing Longwood, our first stop is Delaware Quarries to see an array of natural rock applications for Asian-inspired gardens, including boulders, cobblestones, steppers, wall stone, flagstone, river jacks, and decorative gravel. Next, we’ll travel to Morris Arboretum to enjoy a box lunch and explore a range of traditional and interpretive Asian-inspired gardens, including the former Tea House Garden site, Fernery, Ravine Garden, Overlook Garden, Hill and Water Garden, Katsura Pond, and the Orange Balustrade.
