Roseway Garden Walk

Roseway Neighborhood Association is initiating a new event to foster closer connections between neighbors, to encourage an exchange of ideas about gardens, to illustrate the potential for beautification, and to celebrate our community.

On  June 28, 2014 from 11:00 till 3:00 a number of Roseway residents will open their gardens for us to view. Many of us have walked by these gardens and appreciated the plantings and landscaping from the street. Now we will have an opportunity to see full gardens and perhaps discuss plants and ideas with the proud caretaker. Most gardens in our neighborhood are small and some gardeners have consequently made careful plant and hardscape selections while others have taken a more natural and seemingly random approach to their gardens. Garden style is a matter of individual preference and character, but every garden is a unique adventure. Perhaps seeing what others have created will inspire us with ideas for our own gardens. Perhaps the walk might even motivate us to actually start those projects we’ve been postponing till a “better time”. But it
will most certainly be a great opportunity to connect with and enjoy the neighborhood.

A listing of gardens that will be open will be available. You’ll find a printable map and address listing for each open garden on our website www.roseway.org.  For those more tech savvy, a link will be provided on our website which allows you to open an online map from your Google Map enabled device (iPhone, iPad, Android phone or Tablet, etc.). With this Google map, you can utilize your smartphones’ GPS to access turn-by-turn directions to each home. A small number of printed addresses will be available at Fairley’s and Safeway and there will also be signs posted at each open garden.

If you or a friend would like to open your garden for this Roseway Garden Walk, please contact Del Lewis at don.abbie@gmail.com
