Garden Descriptions

The theme for this year’s tour is Sustainable Beauty. Designers have created gardens to support all life -  plant life, soil life, insect life, wild life, and human life. Enjoy seeing gardens with elements that exemplify how to support nature and our planet, while bringing more beauty into the landscape. Some of the design elements that you will see are: rainwater capture, native and climate appropriate plants, plants for habitat, efficient irrigation, permeable paving, and the utilization of compost and mulch. Each garden has its own personal style designed to take advantage of unique characteristics of the site to create wonderful living, relaxing and entertaining spaces!


In exchange for working a morning or afternoon shift, volunteers receive free entry to the gardens.
