More information and directions to the Tour locations.

The Tour features Potowmack Chapter Member Laura Beaty’s Residence:

The front yard of this residence has become a meadow with plenty of native habitat for birds and other wildlife, including the groundhog that lives under the shed. The native plants with sequential blooms keep the pollinators and butterflies busy. Even the rock garden is composed of locally gathered native quartz providing a site for plants needing good drainage.
