Thirteen central Ohio homes will be included in this year's Outdoor Living and Landscaping Tour, presented by the Columbus Landscape Association.
The tour will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24.
In its third year, the tour will feature outdoor living spaces and professional landscapes in Worthington, Upper Arlington, Dublin, northwest Columbus and Bexley.
The gardens and landscapes highlighted on the tour belong to clients of professional landscape members of the CLA. Members of the CLA are credentialed landscapers who are known for producing the gardens and themed scenery.
The tour will enable participants to experience gardens in real-life settings in an effort to spark creativity and inspire them when working on their own green space. Guests will be provided with landscaping information, refreshments, an opportunity to meet garden designers and discuss their own lawn ideas and challenges and an opportunity to win special landscaping offers from CLA members.
Tickets for the central Ohio garden tour are $12 in advance and $15 the day of the tour.
Tickets could be purchased at any Oakland Nursery location or at Outdoor Living by Mr. Mulch, 2721 W. Dublin-Granville Road.
Tickets also are available on the CLA website: columbuslandscape.org.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Hope Hollow, a local nonprofit organization that offers complimentary lodging and a peaceful and supportive environment to those battling cancer.
