Theme Garden:  Great Expectations
Designed and constructed by Farwest Landscape & Garden Centers

Whether you are a country bumpkin or urban sophisticate, this year’s feature garden will inspire even the most diverse shades of green thumbs. The 1800 square foot garden will contrast back to back a woodlands garden and a formal English garden, joined together by a house structure with two very different faces. Entitled Great Expectations, this colorful combination of outdoor living spaces should not be missed.
