The Phinney Neighborhood Association’s annual Home & Garden Tour this Sunday features five remodeled homes and five gardens in our neighborhood. Billed as “real homes for real people,” the event is a great showcase of the possibilities for homes and yards in Phinney-Greenwood.
This year’s homes feature basement remodels, kitchen remodels, second story additions, solar panels and a bocce court. The gardens include native and exotic plantings, ponds, waterfalls, unique patios and hardscapes. Plenty of ideas and inspiration to embark on your own projects.
The tour is self-guided and you can view the homes and gardens by walking, biking or driving (keep in mind that parking may be difficult). Slip-on footwear is recommended as participants must remove their shoes before entering each house.
On last year’s tour, this backyard playhouse was a big hit.
The Home & Garden Tour is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $12 for PNA members and $15 for the general public and are available online or at the PNA, 6532 Phinney Ave. N. Babes-in-arms are free; tickets for children ages 2-12 are $5. Online tickets must be exchanged for the Home & Garden Tour brochure at the Phinney Neighborhood Center. The ticket brochure includes a map, addresses and a brief description of each home or garden.
