Gardens of the Beach Tour

This year, we are showcasing 13 gardens that celebrate both the well-being and individuality of their owners. We believe it is much more important for people to spend time in, and enjoy their gardens, rather than strive for illusive weed-free or picture-perfect gardens. Each of the showcased gardens reflects the owners' personalities and interests. The visitors will be able to see an artist's Japanese-inspired garden, a Gardener's woodland garden, and also dog-proof, family live-in, natural, and other gardening styles. This year, we found it particularly interesting how many of the owners mixed edible and ornamental plants, and natives and exotics in their gardens. >
