Coppell will have its first ever "Open Garden Day" on September 30, 9:00am-1:00pm. Eight gardens will welcome visitors, some that have not been on a tour before, others popular past participants in tours such as the Smartscape tour and the Dallas WaterWise tour. This tour, however, unlike tours of the past, did not limit participation by criterion; it was open to whoever wanted to share their outdoor creative endeavors with the public.
Three gardens have design elements provided by Coppell's own Grow It Land Design, two have been featured in the Dallas Morning News, another was inspired by Monet's gardens in Giverny. All provide the opportunity to enjoy an array of styles, structure, and plants that can inform your choices now and in the future. Fall is the best time to plant perennials, trees, and shrubs because the plant's energy goes into root growth while it is otherwise dormant in the winter. This tour may provide your own inspiration, allowing you to give it the optimum opportunity to flourish in the spring!
Maps will be available at Helping Hands Community Garden at Town Center, 255 Parkway Blvd., on the day of the tour, or on the website, coppelltx.gov/kcb, beginning September 25.
