2011 Garden Tou

The 8TH Annual Behind-the-Scenes Garden Tour, presented by the Association of Northwest Landscape Designers (ANLD), showcased eight professionally designed private gardens in the Portland Metro and Lake Oswego areas. The landscape designer of each garden was on hand to share their experience and inspire with fresh, new ideas for the landscape. The gardens featured:

  • Spectacular stonework and interesting garden structures (don’t miss the custom built chicken coop)
  • Maximization of useable space and improved circulation on a hillside
  • Incorporation of edibles and other urban farm ideas
  • Sustainable features for stormwater collection and wildlife attraction
  • Large forested properties as well as intimate urban spaces
  • Wide variety of architectural styles, from Victorian to Mid century modern
  • Spectacular front entry water feature
  • Unusual and low maintenance plants in stunning and colorful combinations
  • Garden art customized for each garden
