An evolution of the annual Smartscape Tour of Coppell, the Sustainable Home and Garden Tour will expand to include features such as solar, rain water catchments, compost methods, and backyard habitats in addition to Smartscape design. This casual self-guided yard tour will take place on Saturday, October 1st from 8 a.m. to noon.
The idea is to provide people the opportunity to talk to homeowners casually about the real impact of investing in features that can be both beneficial to the environment and cost saving. The tour will allow people to compare something like the cost of renting vs. purchasing solar in an environment that feels like talking to a neighbor.
Each home will feature diverse highlights. Tour goers will be able to attend all five stops or pick and choose the locations that are most relevant to their interests. People who visit all stops however, will have the opportunity to complete a scavenger hunt that will qualify them to win a rain barrel or compost bin from the City of Coppell.
Keep Coppell Beautiful’s new spin on the Smartscape Tour offers a fun day exploring local gardens that will inspire greener living. To attend, no registration or payment is required. Simply collect your map from Helping Hands Garden, 255 Parkway Blvd. (next to Town Center) on Saturday, October 1st between 8 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. The first 100 people will receive a green living giveaway.
