Santa Monica Landscapes
Sunday, May 31, 2009
1 - 5 pm

Don't miss Santa Monica Conservancy's first garden tour, showcasing twelve extraordinary landscape environments in different neighborhoods of Santa Monica. Gardens provide an important setting for architecture, and are a visual delight for the streetscape.

The tour features environments designed by eminent landscape designers who live in Santa Monica, including their own homes. Visits to the homes of Nancy Power, Daryl Hosta, Dale Newman and Wendy Katz (RubyBegonia) are part of this tour.

Examples of what visitors will experience:
- A botanical garden with specimen aloes, succulents and cacti in front, and a wild meadow of grasses in the back
- A lush, colorful and romantic Mediterranean garden with four different water features
- Drought-tolerant plants that are friendly to butterflies and birds
- A pine forest containing a genuine teepee
- A landscape combining mature trees and colorful flowering plants, designed and installed by the homeowners
- A Zen-like yard with a koi pond and bubbling ceramic urn fountain
- A garden incorporating sculpture, historic artifacts and an antique swing from India

And more....
Tickets are $35 for the general public and $25 for Santa Monica Conservancy members.
