What are the gardens?

There are ten gardens that are currently completed. Each garden is specifically designed to attract and fill the needs of specific wildlife, or to match the gardening style of the homeowner while still fulfilling the needs of wildlife.

Starting at the Entrance Garden (near the parking lot) and traveling West along 149th St., we have a garden especially for hummingbirds called Hummingbird Place, a Collector Garden, a Cottage Garden, a Manor Garden (semi-formal), and the a Flying Flowers Garden.

The Northern row of gardens includes the Homestead Garden that combines food for people and for wildlife, the Northwest Bird Haven (a low maintenance garden), the Water Wise Garden, and the Northwest Natives Garden.

So, whatever your garden style or wildlife attracting goals, we’ve got a garden created to inspire you!
