Edward Scissorhands House in San Diego

I visited San Diego as a guest of Kia

While in San Diego learning about Kia’s ecoDynamics technology, I was given the opportunity to drive a beautiful 2017 Kia Soul EV around town. I got to explore the town with one of my best friends who shares a love for discovering unique and funky places. After I took her to see the skeleton house in San Diego, she then surprised me by bringing me to the Edward Scissorhands House (Harper’s Topiary Garden).

We rocked out to our favorite tunes in the hip 2017 Kia Soul EV and felt the cool ocean breezes flowing in from the sunroof. We drove to one of the highest points of downtown San Diego, and there it was – one of the coolest front yards I have ever seen.

The house sits on top of a hill and has a giant yard that goes from the house down to the street. The yard is filled with green bushes that are beautifully carved into different shapes. There was a whale, a bunny, an elephant, and people. I could have spent all day standing in front of the house admiring the beautiful landscaping. My favorite part of the yard was a little wooden sign on a tree that said “Edna Scissorhands.”

My friend and I spent about 20 minutes pointing out the different things that we spotted in the garden before getting back into our Kia Soul EV to do some more exploring around San Diego. The people who own this house and maintain the garden are some of the most talented artists in the world. The house is located at 3549 Union St, San Diego, CA 92103. When visiting the house, please respect the garden by not touching, walking or climbing around the garden and respect the owner’s privacy.

Have fun showing this hidden gem in San Diego with your children on your next staycation to sunny San Diego!
