Celebrating Beautiful, Low-Water Gardens
The Atascadero Mutual Water Company will host the ninth Annual Autumn Garden Tour on Saturday, Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Atascadero. The self-guided tour will showcase water-wise, resource-friendly landscape designs for the Atascadero area. This year’s tour includes 12 gardens. Local organizations and landscape professionals will be available at the gardens to answer questions regarding plants and sustainable landscapes.
Careful use of water is on everyone’s mind, and the Garden Tour will focus on beautiful, low-water use, sustainable landscapes. This is a unique opportunity to visit a variety of water-thrifty gardens, speak with homeowners and landscape design/installation firms, and find out how to create gorgeous, eco-friendly surroundings using minimal irrigation.
Advance tickets are available for $10 at Bay Laurel Nursery, 2500 El Camino Real, Atascadero, and at the Atascadero Mutual Water Company office, 5005 El Camino Real, Atascadero. Tickets may also be available on the day of the event for $15 as space permits at O’Malley’s Historic Portola Inn, 6955 Portola Road, Atascadero.
