The Water & Garden Showcase, presented by Aquascape Construction, includes walkable residential properties with beautiful gardens and water features, as well as complimentary food and beverages.
Visit at your own pace locally from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 19, in Barrington, Barrington Hills, Elgin, Dundee and Lakewood. This free event will be held rain or shine.
Finish off the water gardening season at Aquascape's corporate headquarters with music, food and a nighttime viewing of indoor and outdoor water features Saturday, Sept. 16, in St. Charles.
Meet at the "Pond Central" location, where experts share inspiration, tips and design ideas. Visitors to the area's only exclusive outdoor Water & Garden Showcase can enjoy the multisensory effects of water, plants in bloom and other new landscape elements.
A freewill offering at each event supports the Aquascape Foundation, developed to promote awareness of water as one of our most precious resources through environmental, educational and philanthropic efforts.
"It's mind-blowing to visit a typical back or front yard and experience the 'wow' of an Eden oasis in a place you would never expect," says Aquascape's Brian Helfrich.
"The summer Water & Garden Showcase is a fun, relaxing opportunity to experience the unique beauty and serenity of a water view right at home."
