“From the humor
of artistically planted silk flowers, to the sheer unexpectedness of garden
design, the Eccentric Garden Tour is an eye-opening experience for any
gardener or garden-goer. The last tour was SO much fun! People haven’t
seen any other gardens quite like these!”
“We live in a blue-jean culture out here in the West, and our gardens don’t need to be formal. Our gardens can be whimsical and casual, reflections of comfortable-ness and of people who like to play in the dirt.”
