Special to the Courier

Alta Vista Garden Club of Prescott will presents its biennial garden tour from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 14. Guests will experience creative blends of perennials, annuals, native plants and vegetables located in private gardens in Prescott's varied landscapes. The self-guided tour features:

• More than an acre of native plants, trees and grasses in the Bradshaw Mountain foothills. Set among the plantings are unique metal sculptures and yard art.

• Cityscape garden overlooking a panoramic vista of some of Prescott's peaks. Discover the imaginative uses of metal work for plantings and birds.

• Meditative garden in the ponderosa pines provides creative repurposing of numerous items, such as antique chandeliers and bird cages.

• Garden in one of Prescott's historic areas which has maximized the geographic terrain of the lot to create varied garden types, including a unique rooftop garden.

In addition to enjoying these wonderfully landscaped gardens, guests will meet related professionals and educators to add to your knowledge and understanding of the unique features in each garden. Local artists and musicians will add to the ambience of each garden setting.

Tickets are limited. They can be purchased in advance for a $10 donation at Bella Home Furnishings, Prescott; Jay's Bird Barn, Prescott and Sedona; Mortimer Nursery & Landscaping, Prescott and Dewey-Humboldt; Prescott Valley Nursery; The Native Garden, Prescott; and Watter's Design & Garden Center, Prescott.
