The following is a glimpse of the gardens featured on the July 9 and 10, 2022 Welcome to My Garden Tour:
Galloway Garden- 18200 B Drive North
Over the years, the Galloways have nurtured this hidden treasure on the Kalamazoo River including a waterfall spilling into a Koi pond and several fountains. Terraced flower beds abound with shrubs, ornamental grasses, perennials, and annuals amidst the garden art and birdhouses, creating a calming retreat for family and feathered friends.
Kurtis Garden -329 North Eagle Street
Informal and casual, the shrub hedges, trellises, flower boxes, and mixed perennial plantings give the Kurtis garden a cottage feel. The gazebo is an outdoor dining and resting spot after a day of gardening in this hidden oasis. Special attention was given to plantings that attract Michigan pollinators - bees, birds, and butterflies.
Snodgrass Garden - 323 North Madison Street
This get-away garden showcases Melanie’s love of color and her artistic creativity in finding and placing family heirloom plant collections and garden art within the landscape. Fairy gardens are nestled amongst the numerous plantings, making your visit a whimsical treat for the senses and your inner child’s favorite stop.
Holcomb Garden- 406 High Street
This High Street garden started as a blank canvas in 2019, evolving into a pandemic-time outdoor retreat for the Holcomb family as they continually added plant material now counting one-hundred-plus specimens. A black iron fence and water feature welcomes guests to the front, and an impressive water fountain takes center stage in the backyard landscape surrounded by lush gardens and a potting shed.
Okoniewski/Wackerle Garden- 334 North Marshall Street
An eclectic mix of perennial and annual plantings and strings of party lights make this tiered garden patio a charming place for entertaining guests or where the garden owners can relax at the day’s end. Enjoying abundantly filled landscape beds, Andrew and Tim continue to incorporate unusual and exotic plants around their water feature, fountains, and in the border beds.
Love Garden- 419 Brewer Street
The street view of this city landscape features three shapely crabapple trees and seasonal flowering window boxes, yet behind the deer fence, the back garden surprises with bolts of floral color and texture. The Loves have filled the sloping gardens with hosta, perennials, and annuals intertwined with paths and showcasing recycled, repurposed items, turned garden art.
