Owned by Leanette Bassetti and her husband, Bill Berleman, their garden has been described by friends as a “slice of heaven.” Located on three acres just two miles from the center of downtown Woodinville, Bassetti’s Gardens is a rich and diverse garden and includes within it several beautiful and distinct gardens. There is a woodland garden complete with a crooked arbor, a serene Japanese garden, a spectacular perennial garden, and a large vegetable garden with espaliered fruit trees. Outstanding private sculptures by well-known artists are placed throughout the grounds.
Bassetti’s Crooked Arbor Gardens has been a nursery and display garden since 1983. The retail nursery specializes in dwarf conifers, alpine plants, container plants and trees. The gift shop sells wonderful and creative garden items including accessories, garden tables and chairs. The beautiful gardens are also available to rent for weddings and receptions, group events, club meetings, or picnic luncheons. For reservations, email Bassetti’s Crooked Arbor Gardens.
