The Santa Monica Conservancy Will showcase twelve “extraordinary landscape environments in different neighborhoods of Santa Monica” in its first garden tour on Sunday, May 31, 1 – 5 pm
The tour features environments designed by local landscape designers, including their own homes. Visits to the homes of Nancy Power, Daryl Hosta, Dale Newman and Wendy Katz (RubyBegonia) are part of this tour.
Among the garden tour-goers will see are a botanical garden with specimen aloes, succulents and cacti, a wild meadow of grasses, a lush, colorful and romantic Mediterranean garden with four different water features,
– drought-tolerant plants that are friendly to butterflies and birds, and a
pine forest containing a genuine teepee.
Also on the tour are a Zen-like yard with a koi pond and a ceramic urn fountain, a garden incorporating sculpture, historic artifacts and an antique swing from India.
Tickets are $35 for the general public and $25 for Santa Monica Conservancy members. Tickets can be purchased online at the Conservancy website, www.smconservancy.org.
