If you are interested in saving on your irrigation water, converting your lawn to a natural habitat, or just love to see the spring flowers check out the Theodore Payne Native Plant Garden Tour. The tour is a unique adventure: a two-day self-guided journey through more than 40 of the Los Angeles region’s most beautiful and inspiring home landscapes. At each location, you’ll meet garden owners, designers, knowledgeable docents and fellow gardeners. The gardens are divided into two groups—one group open Saturday, April 5, and a second group open Sunday, April 6, 2014. Tour hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. The event offers great ideas to implement in your own garden. Please visit for event details — http://www.
