St Louis Water Garden Society 20th Annual Pond-O-Rama (MO)
June 27 @ 9:00 am - June 28 @ 5:00 pm
There is nothing so calming and peaceful as the sound of gently moving water. If it doesn’t exist in their current environments, members of the St. Louis Water Garden Society create their own serenity in backyard gardens—and once a year, they are willing to show everyone how sweet it is–the 20th Anniversary Tour of Pond-O-Rama will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 27-28 , 9-5 pm each day.
There is something for every taste on this year’s tour, from towering waterfalls, gentle trickling streams, pondless waterfalls and rain recovery systems. In them and in the surrounding landscapes are some of the most glorious gardens in the St. Louis area—a pleasure for gardeners and wildlife alike. Birds, butterflies and glorious photo opportunities abound!
Pondless waterfalls are a solution for those who want to have the soothing sounds of water, but either do not have room for a pond, or don’t want the responsibility of caring for plants and fish. These kinds of water features have been growing in popularity, but now an ecologically friendly “wrinkle” has been added. As always, a part of the attraction will be the blooming gardens and landscapes surrounding the water features and the interesting individual whimsical touches. You will see natural swimming holes, garden rooms, gazebos, and many waterfalls and streams with gorgeous koi fish and aquatic plants.
Tour tickets will be available in early May 2020 at local retailers and nurseries, at SLWGS meetings, and by mail through the St. Louis Water Garden Society website. Tickets are $15 each and everyone 18 years of age and older must have a ticket to attend. For information about where to buy tickets, visit our website, www.slwgs.org.
