Olbrich's 2016 Home Garden Tour features seven exceptional gardens in the established neighborhoods of Nakoma and Arbor Hills.

Front yard gardens with annuals, perennials, vegetables, and fruit trees spread color and fragrance through the neighborhood. Ligularia, hellebore, and hardy begonias weave together an exceptional Japanese maple collection in a backyard plant oasis. Walk across a footbridge banked with lush grasses and vibrant irises to a captivating Asian-inspired gazebo. Wander up a secluded wooded landscape wrapping around a mid-century modern home.

Talk with homeowners, landscape designers, Master Gardeners, and other Olbrich volunteers and get tips about incorporating various garden techniques in your own home landscape!
