Get a preview of the gardens featured during the 2022 Southland Community Garden Walk.
Gardens are subject to change.
Building on the Past
The new Flossmoor homeowners of this midcentury modern house have been busy building on what the two previous owners had done. They immediately started to improve on the existing pagoda, Zen garden and winding path by adding trees, shrubs and hundreds of perennials.
A Beautiful Sanctuary
This 5-year old, East Hazel Crest, three quarter acre property was a clean slate for these artistic gardeners. They have created garden rooms for reading, tea and just sitting still taking in the beauty and sweet fragrances.
Stately and Elegant
The challenge was met to create a outdoor space with a variety of heights, shapes, colors, and bloom times, so that the homeowners and their guests could enjoy this mature garden in Flossmoor from spring through fall.
Come see what grows in sandy loam soil which at one time was part of a shoreline. This unique garden in East Hazel Crest features pathways, rock gardens, garden art, and daylily’s and hosta’s galore!
The Big Easy Meets Abe Lincoln
Drawing from her life in New Orleans, this gardener and her husband have built this garden for over thirty years. This Olympia Fields garden includes a pond, trails, numerous perennials and features a statue of John Coltrane playing a bubbling saxophone.
From Challenge to Charm
This half-acre lot in Olympia Fields had its challenges, extensive shade and course clay soil. But these two homeowners took on that challenge with a bit of help from professional garden designers and added color and texture to those tough areas much to the joy of the whole neighborhood.
