About the Event

Road construction is occurring, and we hope it will be over by July; the date may change please check again.

Ingrid and Lawrence’s garden has a mix of native and non-native plants. There is a blue grama lawn. Approximately 23 butterflies & 10 bee species have been identified in their yard. They are exploring ways we can make native plants more acceptable to the public by including ‘cues to care’ such as narrow pathways.

ETIQUETTE AND SUGGESTIONS FOR GARDEN TOUR PARTICIPANTS:

1. The event will be identified with a Nature Regina yard sign.

2. Don’t pick the seed. Many gardeners would like to save the seed for birds. Seed may be available from Nature Regina.

3. If the site is a private garden ask permission to take photos. Many Volunteers have been showing their yard all day. Don’t outwear your welcome, leave at the time noted on the schedule. Front yards can of course be viewed outside of official garden hours. Put show respect and stay on the public sidewalk. Stick to the pathways unless the garden caretakers say you can walk on the lawn;

4. If its hot remember a water bottle and hat.

5. If you have children, please monitor them. Do not let them run through the garden beds. No pets in the gardens.

6. Be kind and understanding. Using native plants has a different aesthetic, and success is not measured in garden design elements, but in the

number of insects and birds that come to your yard. We have many types of yards from manicured to wild, from newly planted, to well-established.
