Photos of the Schedel Arboretum and Gardens in Ohio

The Schedel Arboretum and Gardens were originally the homes and gardens of Joseph and Marie Schedel. The Schedels traveled extensively around the world to over 100 countries, bringing home the ideas that went into the design of the grounds around their home. Prior to their deaths they established a foundation for the preservation and maintenance of their property, which opened as the Schedel Arboretum and Gardens in 1991. The 17 acres of immaculately maintained grounds contain a wide variety of plant and tree species arranged into a number of themes enhanced by a multitude of bronze statues. Some of the highlights of a tour of the Gardens include a Bonsai Collection including specimens up to 60 years old, the Japanese Gardens with stone carvings and waterfalls, the Rose Garden with over 80 varieties of roses, an Iris garden, and a water lily pond. This page has photos of the Schedel Gardens grounds, the flowers and bronze statues, and the flower gardens. More information can be found on their official website at: The Schedel Arboretum and Gardens.
