Police are appealing for information after a group of drunken youths smashed plant pots and uprooted signs early on Sunday morning.
Officers were called to Wybourn Drive in Onchan shortly after midnight, after a group of 15 to 20 youths were seen walking through the estate.
The teenagers, aged between 16 and 18, had left a house party a short time before, and attacked gardens, causing considerable damage.
Police are appealing for anybody with any information to come forward.
