15th Annual Pond-O-Rama Pond & Garden Tour Set For June 27-28


The St. Louis Water Gardening Society members offer a wide variety of private spaces for the 15th annual Pond-O-Rama pond and garden tour June 27 & 28, including sensational waterfalls and new pond options. There are 45 gardens on the two-day tour, many of which will offer new views and new ideas. The ponds and water gardens of SLWGS members are located throughout the metropolitan St. Louis area as well as in the metro east. About half will be on Saturday and half on Sunday. The tours are arranged in geographic grouping to minimize the drive time.

Tickets covering both days of the two-day tour are $15 and are available now at garden centers throughout the metropolitan area. Everyone 18 years of age or older needs a ticket to attend. Each ticket purchased comes with a coupon for a free six-months membership to SLWGS.

For a list of ticket seller locations, check the SLWGS website at www.slwgs.org. Tickets also may be ordered directly from the website.

Water features will include some with expansive pond and streams, huge boulders and places for family fun as well as small, restful retreats for homeowners. “Our 15th annual tour includes something for every taste,” said Virginia Mueller, SLWGS coordinator for Pond-O-Rama.

“Our hosts have been busy getting their gardens ready for the tour,” Mueller said. “We are excited to see the new spaces as well as the changes to the landscapes completed by our repeat hosts.”
