The 20th annual Tooele County Master Gardeners’ Garden Tour was held Friday evening and all day Saturday across Tooele Valley.
According to tour coordinator Jay Cooper, approximately 500 attendees visited 14 sites in Tooele, Grantsville, Erda, Stansbury Park and Stockton.
Attendees saw spacious and compact yards, low-water settings, water features and ponds, vegetable and ornamental gardens, rockscapes, and landscapes with outbuildings, along with winding paths, unique art, and a variety of other features.
All proceeds from the tour go to support Arbor Day and gardening projects in Tooele County.
Cooper said next year’s tour is already scheduled for Saturday, June 15, while the Summer Blast is set for June 7 at Benson Gristmill.
The garden tour was founded 20 years ago by Pat Jessie, Mae Freestone, Barbara Barlow and Joyce Tate. Attendees are urged to meander at their own pace and to get ideas for their gardens and yards while visiting tour sites.
