21st Annual Minnesota Water Garden Society Pond and Garden Tour
July 28/29, 2018
Each year on the last weekend in July, the non profit Minnesota Water Garden Society showcases a group of private ponds and gardens for the public to enjoy. The MWGS Tour is a self guided tour from 9 AM to 5 PM Saturday and Sunday, July 28 and 29.
“Whether you are a ‘ponder’ or a gardener or just want to have an enjoyable day visiting other people’s ponds and gardens, we invite you to join us”, says MWGS President Gary De Grande.
There are 11 gorgeous sites, grouped together to facilitate easy touring. Locations include St. Paul, Maplewood, White Bear Township, Lino Lakes, Mounds View, Mahtomedi, Lake Elmo and Stillwater. MWGS members and the home owners will be on hand to share their experiences and answer your questions. Come hear first hand about not only the building of a pond (many sites were built by the owners) but also practical advice about pond maintenance and water gardening in general. All sites have beautiful “regular” gardens, some with unique landscaping, in addition to the pond and water garden.
The 2018 MWGS Tour is sponsored by The Pond Co, 301 W 90th St, Bloomington, MN.
