Watershed Friendly Home, Garden and Horse Farm Tour - June 19th

One of the best ways to get inspired about creating eco-friendly landscapes is to visit some of the other "green" gardens in the area to see just how beautiful and fun they can be!

On Sunday, June 19th, you will have that opportunity during the Watershed Friendly Home, Garden and Horse Farm Tour being held from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Visit gardens throughout Fairfax County featuring vegetated roofs, rain barrels, backyard wildlife habitat, composting, native plant species and more.

You can enjoy each garden at your own pace and visit as many or as few as you like. Gardens are grouped for ease of viewing.

This event is co-sponsored by the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District and the Fairfax Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalists.

Highlights of the tour:
  • Native plant landscapes
  • Wildlife habitats (including NWF Certified habitats)
  • Monarch Waystation Habitat
  • Rain barrels and other rain collection systems
  • Rain gardens
  • Turf-free landscapes
  • Chemical free landscapes
  • Green roofs
For descriptions of the gardens on the tour, visit the Watershed Friendly Home, Garden and Horse Farm Tour page on the Fairfax County website.
