A dozen people turned out on a beautiful evening for our yard tours in East Duluth and on Old North Shore Drive yesterday.
The tour started in the yard of Heather Wright Wendel in East Duluth. Heather recently moved into her home and was looking for advice on landscaping with native plants. I’m sure she received plenty of advice. Because she is close to a stream, Heather was eligible to have Lake Superior – Duluth Streams install a rain garden for her. The rain garden is a very nice addition to her yard and will help to reduce runoff into the stream and Lake Superior.
In contrast, Nan and Ken Geshowak have been in their house on North Shore Drive for about 5 years. In that time they have spent an enormous amount of energy on landscaping – and it shows! Both their front and back yards are beautiful. They also have a nice trail system in the back of their back yard.
Many thanks to Heather, Nan and Ken for hosting this tour.
