The homeowners will showcase both front and back property and will help you build your confidence to try out new landscaping and edibles ideas. Almost all work was and is done by the owners.

The new front yard was inspired by last year’s tour. It includes a thriving monarch butterfly habitat, succulents, natives, wildflowers, a kumquat tree and favorite plants from the prior palette. The backyard is a 5-year running year-round kitchen garden of raised beds – edibles and flowers to attract beneficial insects and birds. Worm bins are part of the family. There is a rainwater barrel. Plant experiments are everywhere and much of the palette was started from cuttings or seeds.

The homeowners will provide informational displays, handouts and lots of practical, low-cost tips to help convince you that you have an inner green thumb, and, in spite of the fact that there’s never enough time, you can successfully transform your earth spot one step at a time and have a lot of fun.
