Next weekend the annual ANLD Designers’ Garden Tour will take place in the Portland area. If you’re available to attend on Saturday June 18th, you’re in for a pleasant day full of lovely gardens with lots of beautiful ideas. Since this was the first pre-tour I’d ever attended I had no idea what to expect. I left feeling inspired and fully enjoyed each and every one of the gardens I visited with fellow bloggers and other attendees. (To learn more about the tour and how it works click on the link above.)
Garden #1: Wagner Garden
Located in the Clackamas area, this garden is a suburban retreat full of lush plant combos and serene seating areas.
Garden #2: Langeliers Garden
Garden art and incredible plants tie this lovely landscape together with its home and evoke personality that’s consistent throughout the design.
Garden #3: Hannan Garden
This is a garden that’s all business in the front and party in the back.
Garden #4: King Garden
A midcentury ranch with a twist of lush landscaping and bold choices of metal, color, and stone.
Garden #5: Olson Garden
A natural beauty with a mix of bold plant combinations and fine craftsmanship.
Garden #6: Beberned-Gawf Garden
A garden with incredible bones, and a history of having been a neglected clean slate, this garden has been landscaped with personal touches, a few recycled items, and lots of stained glass art.
Garden #7: Mauch Garden
Quietly holding down a city lot with large patches of green, several pockets for seating, and serene, beautiful ceramic art throughout.

I wish I could go….what fabulous gardens! Love the sculptures especially the sleeping Buddha. Hope the weather stays nice : )
Great post, Ann! I know all of these gardens so well at this point, as I’m so involved with the event planning (and gdn #6!), but I am always so impressed to see others’ unique views of them. Love all your pics.

It is such a great group of gardens and our pre-tour was fun! Since I tend to hangout a lot with nursery and plant folks this was kind of new to me. Your group did a fantastic job. I’m so happy I was able to attend.
So glad all you guys could be there!
