Garden Walk 2023 is just days away! 

You're invited to join us on Saturday, June 24.

Bring a friend. Spend some time relaxing and finding ideas to try in your home landscape. Capture ideas like pleasing plant combinations in ground or in containers, new or unusual trees or shrubs to add to the "bones" of your garden and how to solve water problems. Each garden description features our 1-2-3 education points. Each point matches a numbered stake in the garden highlighting a special attraction in that landscape.

This year we're showcasing seven outstanding gardens!

Five are in and around Valparaiso; two are in Chesterton/Porter. One garden marries feeding local pollinators, adding food and herbal delights to the human table and the look of floral brilliance. Another contains many unusual plants layered to add vertical interest to the landscape views. A third features many beds leading down to the family swimming pool.

For contrast, one gardener has fashioned a magical mixture of color, texture, size and season to create an endless palette of beauty. Another demonstrates how to build a landscape on family memories and shared plants. Both are sources of inspiring ideas to consider for your own landscape design.
