Description: Scattered islands of natural landscaping–all developed over a thirty-year period and placed within the confines of a 1/4 acre city lot. The yard is planted with a delightful combination of native plants, various grasses, native shrubs and trees. John will discuss “his dilemma” of what to do about shade created by mature trees and shrubs on his sun-loving plants. The owner-guided walk starts at 11:15am, or whenever the group arrives from the first walk at Christ the King Parish. Note: This is the second of two garden walks today.
Directions: From the church, turn left (south) and go about 600 yards to the third right, Hiawatha Drive. Turn right and go through the four-way stop intersection. In 75 yards, turn right on Winnebago Drive. The Shiel house is the second one on the left, 4707 Winnebago Drive in Wonder Lake. It’s the one with the oak trees and prairie. Street parking protocol around here is to park about half your vehicle OFF the road surface, with tires on the grass. Thanks for your cooperation.
