THIS YEAR'S GARDENS

Get a preview of the gardens featured during the 2019 Southland Community Garden Walk.

The Beautiful Sound of Water

A beautiful mature garden accents a wooded lot with winding spaces filled with flowering plants, shrubs and distinctive hardscapes.  A babbling brook has gives pleasure to all that sit in their screened porch and lovely tiered deck.  

A Splash of Tranquility

Bird-songs fill the air in this lovely and peaceful garden.  The garden has little shade and the plantings reflect the garden’s and the gardeners’ sun-loving nature.  A koi-filled pond and lotus bog complete the tranquility.

 

Deer-resistant Elegance

The challenge was met to create a deer-resistant outdoor space with a variety of heights, shapes, colors, and bloom times, so that the homeowners and their guests could enjoy it from spring through fall.  Looking out at the garden is like being on vacation every day.

Art, Flowers, Water and Stone

An unexpected brook along the patio edge is the outstanding feature in this creative garden.  The homeowner loves to use art and stone details in her gardens. A garden swing, vegetable garden, hydrangeas and a hidden meditation garden complete the lovely space.

 

A Corner Showpiece

Bordered by boxwoods and arborvitae with seasonal peeks of color in this is an ever-changing and exciting garden.  In the back is a big surprise with beautiful living space among the flowers and vegetables.

Labor of Love

The homeowner and her son garden together.  Their love of color and texture is perfectly reflected in this wooded, artistically designed garden.  This home and garden are both elegant and artful...a definite must see!

Big Bang for the Buck

The main goal was to create colorful and interesting areas with more perennials and less grass.  Planters and garden art accent the perennials along with steppingstones made by the grandchildren.  Success in growing vegetables encouraged the homeowners to expand the size of their garden and the variety of vegetables.  

The Beautiful Garden of a Beautiful Woman

With respect for the late homeowner’s wishes, her friends in the gardening community and her family came together to get her garden ready for this year’s garden walk.  The garden is as beautiful as the woman.
