2017 Home Garden Tour
  • This event has passed.

The Water Conservation Garden invites the public to its second annual Water-Wise Home Garden Tour. The self-guided tour will highlight five beautiful gardens, located in East County utilizing an array of color, variety, and low water usage. Learn about using native, succulents, cacti and Mediterranean plants and how you can design your yard for low water usage plants. The gardens emphasize plants from semi-arid regions of the world including Australia, New Zealand, Southwestern U.S. and South Africa.


Succulent arrangements will be on sale, as well as other garden/home items such as bird houses and garden jewelry, all handmade by local artisans. The homeowners will be on-hand to talk with attendees and Clayton Tschudy, The Garden’s Director of Horticulture, will be available to talk about how easy it is to re-design their own landscape using low-water usage plants.


Online registration is closed, but tickets may be purchased for $25 at the gift shop at The Garden until 12pm today. All proceeds will benefit The Garden’s botanical collection care, exhibit upkeep, and education programs, including the award-winning “Ms. Smarty-Plants™” water conservation education program.
