Pam and Rick Tully Garden.  Located in the Anderson Island neighborhood of Shreveport, this creative display, combining flowers and vegetables in an organic garden is a must see.  A variety of tomato plants, blueberry bushes, peppers and green beans are artfully interspersed with beautiful annuals.

Jeffrey Knighton Garden.  Located in the heart of South Highlands, this garden maximizes the backyard to include flower beds along the border of the yard with interesting artwork and an amazing water feature. There are so many spots to relax and enjoy a cool drink, along with an area for entertaining with friends.

Grady and Greg Morrison Garden. A South Highlands charmer! Limelight hydrangeas, colorful front beds and a stone pathway guides you to the backyard where there is a beautiful pool, gazebo and colorful pots that invite one to sit and enjoy the view. Definitely a calming spot.

Enjoy a stroll through delightful gardens full of hydrangeas, iris, daylilies and much more. Don’t miss the wonderful water feature. Every plant is labeled so you are sure to leave with ideas to try at home in your own garden.
