BALL GROUND, Ga. -- 11Alive's latest One Tank Trip takes viewers to Gibbs Gardens, a 300 acre property in northeast Cherokee County.
It took Jim Gibbs seven years to find his perfect property and another 33 years to create Gibbs Gardens.
"We opened on March first of 2012," he said. The season starts in March when 50 acres of daffodils begin to bloom.
There are 16 gardens throughout the property. Gibbs doesn't mind when people approach his private house while exploring the Manor House Garden.
"I think when you make a decision to have a public garden, and you want to design a house and garden, you want to be sure that in the plan, you're going to have the house featured," he said. "I want people to sit on the veranda in the rocking chairs. They're going to look down at seven flowering levels of terrace gardens. They're going to really picture and feel that they live in that house."
Other features include a Japanese Garden, a Water Lily Garden, bridge crossings and lots of waterfalls.
There is also a tram for visitors who have a hard time getting around.
It's a great place for school field trips.
