Looking for something fun, free & informative to do this weekend? You may want to check out the first annual Long Beach Lawn-to-Garden Tour.
It will be held this Saturday, May 19th, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The tour is self-guided and will feature the opportunity to view about 30 gardens where homeowners have replaced their lawns with water-smart landscapes. Homeowners or representatives will be available at each home to talk about their experiences during their garden transformations.
The Long Beach Lawn-to-Garden program provides grants of up to $2500 to help homeowners replace lawns with water-smart landscapes that thrive in our semi-arid climate.
If you visit www.lblawntogarden.com, you can find out more about the program and sign up for the garden tour. When you sign up, you'll receive a list of featured gardens.
