We are back for more “teasers” for next weekend’s Garden Tour. Our own Carol Crupper has provided wonderful insights into our gardens. Here’s her brief overview for these previews; “Veteran and novice gardeners alike will find plenty to love at this year’s Douglas County Master Gardeners’ biennial tour June 1 and 2 in Lawrence. Six private gardens, each with a unique focus, will offer a bounty of ideas for landscape design.”
As stated in my headline, today’s entry is a twofer; two gardens in the preview…Enjoy!!! “*Edible landscape. Designed as a social space, these gardeners front-yard garden features fresh fruits and vegetables nestled among traditional perennial plantings. Keyhole beds provide easy access for cultivation and harvest, and a 550-gallon rain barrel irrigates the entire garden.
And the twofer “Naturally designed for entertaining. The owner’s upscale home and surrounding gardens were designed with existing trees in mind. Her careful planning and planting have resulted in gardens that transition all around the home and create unique areas for entertaining. Points of interest include use of rocks and berms, a dry creek bed, an outdoor fireplace and a stunning pond.”
