Secret Gardens of Johns Creek
Saturday, May 4, 2019 9AM - 4PM
Johns Creek Beautification is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Secret Gardens of Johns Creek Tour! This year's collection of seven amazing home gardens will emphasize unusual and themed plant combinations and hardscapes. It will feature a pool deck surrounded by mature hardy tropicals, a Japanese inspired koi pond and Buddha meditation area, a magnificent expansive moss lawn surrounded by azaleas and hydrangeas, a unique outdoor stacked stone fireplace, an artistically arranged raised bed configuration, and a backyard with a series of stone pathways that will take you on a journey through a unique collection of shade and sun perennials, conifers, many native trees and shrubs.
Partnering with Johns Creek Beautification for the first time this year, Autrey Mill Nature Preserve will be a premiere tour stop. This unique Johns Creek owned property includes miles of woodland trails, historic buildings, butterfly garden, animal exhibits, and more.
We look forward to once again highlighting wonderful musicians and artists for our visitors enjoyment and will have master gardeners present to answer your plant related questions. Educational presentations will be occurring throughout the day at the Nature Preserve. While you are there, consider enjoying lunch or taking advantage of the plant sale! All tour stops are conveniently located along the Old Alabama Road corridor, which should make it very easy for a relaxed visit to enjoy each unique property.
All proceeds from this event support the work of Johns Creek Beautification and will be specifically earmarked toward the purchase of major public art sculptures for the city, landscape beautification projects throughout Johns Creek, and to benefit a massive Citywide daffodil planting effort to raise awareness of cancer survivorship through their partnership with CanCare.
We hope to see you there!
